    No one has them any where since it got best whiskey in the world 2020. I bought one to give away as a wedding gift.
    I was told I still got a deal as they are going for $200.00 now on the secondary market. What ever?
    When ever I think of Bourbon,I visualize an old southern man in a cheesy leisure suit and a bolo tie drinking it from a heavy tumbler with a big chunk of ice on an old porch.

    I think you nailed it!
    I was trying to find the Tomatain CS, whiskey can be so regional here, it is not in California but it is in other parts of the U.S.
    In time a bottle will come my way.

    BTW I called the owner where I get my bottles, I bought 10 pricey bottles in 4 weeks from him and he charged me 100% over full retail on the last 2 bottles.
    I get that they are on demand,but when you do that to a guy who supports you by paying a little more to go with the small local guy in my neighborhood and buys at least 2 bottles a week from you.
    Don't gouge me. I won't come back again. So he gave me a bottle of Eagle Rare to make it right.

    Nice to be nice.. Eagle 10 is a good whiskey, and oddly cheap considering its age. I have a bottle opened and one in reserve. Think it varies in price here.

    The price on Eagle Rare 10 year is expected to go up , here I'm told.
    Due to the high demand and shortage of older whiskey.
    Funny the 1792 is only a 8 1/2 year aged in wood,but the barrels chard differently and are aged on a different floor of the Rickhouse for a different flavor profile .
    Distillers really are talented individuals.

    Need to try the 1792 sometime when and if price stabalizes. With Brexit about to kick in, Irish may become difficult but if Trump wins Bourbon may become easier. Who knows.
