    The Whiskey and Spirits Thread

    I had a bad experience today at Toddy’s on Kingston Pike, Knoxville. Stopped in for the first time and found some Weller Special Reserve (green label) for $29. I took it to the cashier (young guy) who was checking us out and I mentioned what a good price it was. Another older employee started going off about the Knoxville Bourbon Club or some such...making his phone ring off the hook and coming in to buy these types of bourbons and selling them at a profit...he would rather sell them to his regular customers. He claimed they forced him to continually lie and tell people he didn’t have the bourbon they wanted. At first I thought he was joking but he got louder and louder. I advised that perhaps he should find something else to do if selling bourbon caused him so much stress. He then yelled “YOU THINK I’M STRESSED”? I had pushed some unseen button. From the looks on the younger employees faces they had seen this behavior before. I won’t go back to Toddy’s. May not even drink that bourbon...ok, yeah I’m going to drink the bourbon, lol. Happy Holidays, go to Bob’s Package Store!

    The Whiskey and Spirits Thread

    So I’m getting into bourbon and I may have Blanton’s and Angel’s Envy under the tree! In the spring we’re going to drive up to Buffalo Trace Distillery and tour the facilities. Lots of good bourbon comes out of there...Would love to try some Weller or Elmer T Lee, but doubt I’ll find any. What are some other good ones? I’ve tried Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek, Elijah Craig, Woodford Reserve...liked all of them. Thinking about Old Forrestor Prohibition 1920... Thanks, B

    NRA carry Guard?

    I probably jumped the gun and got the lowest level NRA carry guard package. Probably will drop and get the USCCA instead. B

    Lost a great friend today

    Sorry to hear this news. I lost a dog in April, 2016 and know how it hurts. And yes, you made the right decision. B
