• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I’m still getting over Blantons being treated like it’s hot shit. I mean, nothing against it. Now Eagle Rare? Haven’t seen that yet in the nyc area

I like Blantons. I just don’t like seeing it go $50 to $100 in a year. But I’m getting old and crankier. There are a million other examples many for much worse whiskey.

To be fair, MSRP is $60. The rest is pure profiteering

I blame hipsters for this whacky shit. When I think just several years ago my local place had a shelf full of Pappy’s (15,20,23) and reasonably priced it pisses me of something I’ve been about forever is a huge fad.

I tried Blanton's about or 7 or 8 years ago when it was widely available, and wasn't impressed. Just seemed one-dimensional in a "I stole a drink from my dad's bottle and added water so he'd never know" kind of way. I haven't bought any since.

Blantons gold (46%) or SFTB (barrel proof) are amazing, but not available in the US

have you tried the bottled in bond? It's a great whiskey for sure! Also, be on the lookout for barrel picks. I have had some store picks over the years that were just mind blowing and always under $40 a bottle..

See that Dickel Bottled in Bond won whiskey of the year in Whiskey Afficianado. Not surprising, its an amazing Tennessee Whiskey. Hope this doesn't make it harder to find!!

I live in fear of those awards every year. It always turns something good into unobtanium.
