I'm probably done with Blantons at current price. All bourbons have went up since they become " popular ". It's by far one of my favorite.... but past it's worth. Makers 46 will back in bulk if trend continues

Makers 46 had a definite spot in my bar but Blantons is very smooth and the fact that I can't hardly find it in my area makes me spend that much more time trying.

I've found some prime bourbon in little out of the way liquor stores, headed up on the caprock this weekend and will definitely visit any I find...

I like Blantons and try to keep some on hand but the price hike makes me question if I'll keep buying it

Lots of really good stuff out there for a better price

I've always payed $55-$57. This shipment was $214 tax included for 3. I've got a lot...so until it comes back below $60 I won't bulk buy anymore just 1 here and there on occasion



It ain't $60 good much less $70, and it's my favorite lol

That's a really good price. Everytime I've seen it, it has been around a hundred bucks.

The mark up is ridiculous. My first, and only bottle, was around $52 several years ago before the whale status.

That's a great buy, one of my favorites. It's still low to mid $30s here

I just found two more bottles of Blantons. The liquor store owner said that they had a fire at the distillery and hadn't made any for a while, but that they were back in production. He said that the smaller stores would be allowed one bottle per week. I bet it gets easier to find moving forward

It's hard to beat for the money. Eagle Rare along with Weller Antique, Weller 12, and Henry McKenna 10 are my favorite bottles under $30.

Weller has been a favorite for some time now. It's getting hard to find also. I heard it had something to do with them making a mistake on a line of their barrels but I don't know it's that true or not.

Blanton's along with several other bourbons should be easier to find in the next few years. The bourbon boom really started hitting its stride about 5 years ago and distilleries have upped production, but since Blanton's is aged 6-9 years, it's not like they can just turn it out overnight.

Kids went out trick or treating with the moms, so a few dads came over to watch some World Series baseball and have a few drinks. Most of it's mine, but the 3 guys that came over each brought a bottle to share as well. Not a bad Tuesday night.

I’m enjoying these pictures. I have some Jack single barrel that I plan on drinking once I finish butchering my first deer of the year.

The Spec’s corporate location has a bottle of Macallen 1937 and Macallen 1940 for $35,000 and $34,000. If I ever win the lottery I don’t plan on splurging on a lot of stuff, but I think I’d buy one of those bottles.

Was in a shop in stillwater today that had Blantons on the shelf but wanted $67 for it. Picked up some more Weller Antique 107 at retail price instead

Agree. The I.W. Harper 15 has a very unique flavor, but not in a bad way. This is my first bottle of the Harper 15 and bought it on the recommendation of a friend who has a palate is similar to mine and rarely steers me wrong.

I over paid ($62) but I haven't seen it anywhere and I have wanted to try it since finding this thread on TBH. I see someone said earlier small shops get 1 a week and I only get here about once a month so I grabbed it. My birthday is next week so I used that as my excuse haha.



My meager collection. I have had the TX since Easter. I like it a lot, but I only drink one ever once in awhile. I usually keep Jim Beam Devils Cut but bought the Devils River a couple of weeks ago to try. It's not bad and was about the same price ($23).

Just picked up a 1.75 of Elijah Craig small batch for 50 bucks. Pretty dadgum good for cheap whiskey, drink this with one icecube. I've been looking for an everyday whiskey; I might just have found it.
