  1. I went into Sigel’s the other day and they tried to get me hooked on buying one of these 12 bottles.  I was tempted at first but…..69 dollars plus tax for a 350ml bottle of questionable bourbon!?!  

    Not just ‘no,’ but…’Hell no!’

    For 69 bux i could get two bottles of 4 Roses Single Barrel, or 3 bottles of Buffalo Trace, or I could travel up town to Goody Goody and buy a 750ml of Thomas H. Handy Sazerac for the exact same price.

    I love the idea, and i am both extremely happy someone is rating these…but at the same time I feel bad that you may have spent more than it was worth :(

    1. At $70 these are nowhere near a buy. They’re $45-50 around here which for a couple aren’t awful until you do the “… but it’s a 375″ adjustment. 

      It’s worth noting I’m not buying and consuming whole cases of this stuff myself. It’s a six-way split with some friends – more details here – which is the only way any of us were going to do it. It ends up netting out to about $100 for 750mL currently which is in my comfort zone as an admitted scotch drinker (especially since it’s only quarterly) – especially since it’s a relatively unique opportunity to blast through a ton of samples and test some assumptions. 

      That said, I’m not much of a bottle-rebuy kind of guy. I don’t think I’d ever buy three bottles of anything in one shot. :) The closest I’d get is multiple bottles of Four Roses that varied on yeast. At some point I’ll do the ten recipes head to head.
