Still can’t find one. I stopped looking.
I'm hoping it dies down soon. There's too many people out there that think they're cool scooping up bottles and letting them collect dust. A lot of these hard to find bourbons were on the shelves of Target, Meijer, Jewel, etc. 2-3 years ago before it became cool to collect bourbon.

Frankly, I know it's a bit of a drive, but a trip to the bourbon trail is fun and you get stocked with rare stuff. A group of 8 of us went last fall and came home with a lot of hard to find stuff. BT does a random EH, Weller, or Blanton's sale every Saturday morning.

I’m hoping to do the whiskey trail this summer. I’m thinking I can come home with some decent bottles.

I got a ton from my guy at Binnys today, about the only thing i DIDNT get was one of those Blantons. E.H. definitely tastes better than Blantons though IMO. If you're lucky enough to ever get a Single Barrel that is the best bang for your buck bourbon you can buy.

You did good today. In my opinion, EH is a lot better than Blantons.
I usually strike out, today was just my day. I went in for EHT and when I found out they had Blanton’s I went for that. I was at my 1 allocated for the day so sent the GF for the EHT. I have never had it, had Blanton’s years ago. I’m excited to try both. I need an Eagle Rare to compare them all.

I was really surprised by the Blanton’s today. Now I need to double down on Eagle Rare.

Peanut butter White Russian (White Ukrainian?) with Screwball peanut butter whiskey instead of vodka?!?! Anyone tried this?
Looks like I’m running to the liquor store today.
