Re: Elmer T Lee Single Barrel Bourbon

My sister contacted me the other day. A distant relative was asking if I could get a bottle of ETL for her. Offered $150. I just laughed. It's not about the money. It's about finding it for my guests.

Re: The Bourbon Thread

How long until this October Pappy/BTAC release? Freight and trucking around the US is a nightmare right now, add in a shortage of trailers and it's a mess. I expect WA won't land til November. Most East Coast and Midwest should be in house now. Fingers crossed. Not landed in IL as of this week.
