      St Louis Park Liquor Boy. Oh, I have a line on a case plus of BCS if you want it. And if you wanna buy a case of it, you could. Again, not Total Wine.
      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

          I can check on Sat, how many you want? No finder's fee, will sell at cost. Edit: assuming you're talking CBS, not BCS.

            I’m off tomorrow. I’ll head over there tomorrow morning while I’m out running errands.

            I’ll let you know.

              Cool. If you want the BCS, it's Strong Liquor on Cedar Lake Road, near Hopkins Crossroad. You can seriously buy a case. If asked, just say I sent ya.

                This might be a bit of an awkward discussion, but...when was the last time you seriously tasted the difference between a $60 bottle of scotch, and a $200+ scotch like, oh I don't know, Balvenie 21? And I mean a, "this was totally worth paying another $$$$+ for" difference.

                I used to love Highland Park 12 at a little over $50 - nice balance between Islay and Speyside styles - and I could barely taste the difference between that, and the 18-year at about $120 that I bought once. That's when I realized the 'tasting' thing was mostly a farce, and that the law of diminishing returns is true for at least 95% of the public.

                  Anything more than a 20~ YO is just dIck-swinging from ALL I have heard. I'd guess probably more than 15 overall. And yes, the Balvenie 21 I bought on that excursion was just a "go big or go home" move. Gave me an excuse to spend the money. However, to the original argument, you taste Jack D and then take a taste of say, Woodford Double Barrel, you WILL taste the difference. You taste J Walker Scotch, and then taste Balvenie whatever (really, the age doesn't matter) and you WILL taste the difference.

                    I own a bottle of balvenie 30 and have had dozens, maybe a hundred, of other whiskeys. There’s an ocean of difference between the 30 and everything else Balvenies. Same thing with high end bourbon. You can easily taste the difference between a bottle of Jim and a bottle of Booker’s. And you can easily taste the difference between Booker’s and a bottle of Stagg.

                    Some are worth it. Others aren’t. Would I buy a bottle of Balvenie 30 again? Maybe. But it’s about more than taste. It’s about sharing something great sometimes. Why do we buy diamonds on engagement rings when zirconias look fairly similar? Why do we buy luxury cars? Why do we buy stressless furniture instead of la-z-boy? Why go to the symphony when you can hear a cat baying at the moon?

                    It’s about refinement. Even when we enjoy the symphony, it still takes time and practice to be able to hear the piccolo over everything else. Would the symphony be the same without the piccolo? Probably. But is the chamber orchestra the same as a full symphony? Nope. Is it worth paying that much extra? I don’t know. Depends on how much you like music.

                      I think that's probably 98% accurate.

                      We agree, to a point. Some will taste a slight difference, and be unimpressed, whereas the majority may *gasp* not notice anything, or if they do, dislike it.

                      I'll concur with you, they're morons. But...hey, I was never a cheap drunk.

                      Some of us, will notice the difference in that $25-50 range. Major value to be found there, IMO.

                        I'm starting to understand now. Like comparing Sioux hockey to gopher hockey. They're both college hockey, but . . .

                                Some stores will do that. They hold it for their regular customers and turn away the newbs and truck chasers.
