Tuesday Tasting Tonight! 

Are you ready to get experimental?  I hope so because tonight at Martin's West we'll be tasting a selection from the ultra-rare Buffalo Trace "Rediscovered" series.  The recent release of experimental barrels contained a 21 year, 19 year, and 17 year without any tweaking or manipulation - just old Buffalo Trace whiskey!  Good luck trying to find these in a store, but you can find them on Ebay for about $200 per HALF bottle.  As I wrote earlier on the blog, I learned while being a teacher that being fair means allowing everyone to have a chance at the cherry popsicle.  Therefore, I gave a few bottles back to the distributor and they sold them to Martin's West instead.  Moira will open them tonight and you can have a full glass of the 1993 17 year old for about $4.  Show starts at 6 PM.  See you there!

Soon, but even when they do, we won't be able to do super rare stuff like this. I can make this happen because Martin's West lets me play spirits buyer for them too.

How was the 17, anyway?
