Even one of those would be a great score, much less all three!

Weller full proof was 52$. The Blantons is a pint bottle. They have never seen it before. 36$. Total bill was $117.

The Blantons and weller were ďstore selectĒ bottles with the pinkies gold sticker on the outside.

Rumor has it that Eagle Rare is easy to get in Oklahoma if any of you ever get up that way. I was given a bottle last time I went up there fishing.

That's a bourbon jackpot these days? Glad I weaned myself off of it when the craze became too much.

We have 2 bottles of Eagle Rare on the shelf at the store.
We got some Weller 12 and a Blanton's a few months ago. They were gone in a day.

That is the bourbon trifecta right there.

My girlfriend actually scored a bottle of Eagle Rare today at a twin liquors for $38. She had to ask and it doesnít hurt that sheís pretty. We have a standing rule that if one of us finds a bottle the other owes a steak dinner. Itís a win win if you ask me.
