So I go to one of the local liquor stores tonight, because it's finally starting to turn to Bourbon weather, and I ask the guy how much the Basil Hayden's is. He says "$40 something..." and I'm like "What?!?".

So I take it up to the register and he scans it and says $49.99. $50 for a 1/5 of Basil Hayden's just seems to defeat the purpose of a great overall bourbon for the price. Hell, I'll go for Blanton's if we're going to be going there.

Now, I don't ever remember paying much over $30 for this stuff. When I started drinking it some 6 or 7 years ago, it was only like $25 a bottle, and I could have sworn I was only paying in the low $30's if that last year.

Anyone else encountered this?

I saw some on clearance at Bevmo for $20. If I had known that you wanted it, I'm sure I could have smuggled it to you for much cheaper than fifty bucks :lol:

I've never seen it lower than... $45?

I don't think BH is great "winter bourbon" anyway; too light. I think of it more as a great refreshing summer whiskey. Get thee some Jefferson's.

Think "Florida Winter". It's 64 degrees outside.

Jefferson's is good. I don't think I've met a bourbon I didn't like.

Awesome. :lol:

I consider as low as 50 to be shorts weather, don't really need a jacket above 40 unless you'll be outside for more than 10 minutes.

Michigan winters :hungus:

I've been known to wear shorts down into the low 40s, and no jacket until it drops below 25 :lol:

$49? Jesus, I thought we had it bad in Mass, but the place I buy it at is like $35 a bottle.

I love Woodford Reserve too, but it's actually a hair cheaper than Basil's here. :yesway:

I know, can you believe it? I really only remember paying around $30 for it last year. You know, it may just have been the store I went to. It's a little mom and pop liquor store up the road.

Damn, I mean, you love to support those guys, but... Not at that sort of a premium.
