**Official Bourbon, it's a lifestyle thread**

Recommended Posts

Okay, I once received a bottle of Rip Van Winkle bourbon as a thank you gift from someone I gave an English Bulldog to. I used to drink bourbon but can't anymore so it sat on the shelf in my closet for six years.

Then, there was a raffle for a guy who needed help and I donated the bottle to the raffle, having no idea what it was worth. So I looked it up right before posting it.

Sheet! That bottle went for $850. I had no idea what I had. lol

I can't remember.

The dog I gave him was a $1800 dog, but I didn't ask him for money because I just wanted the dog to have a good home. He had started biting my other dogs, so he needed a new home with no other dogs. The guy who took him was from orange bloods, a coach in the Ft Smith area of Arkansas. He just showed up with that bottle and gave it to me when I answered the door.

There were several times I had been tempted to open that bottle and take a swig. I'm glad I didn't. lol

The raffle was for LonghornRealtor's family, if you remember him. He was a good friend to me.

Sounds like it went to great cause for LHR’a family.

Have any of you tried Uncle Nearest?  I love it.  My favorite is probably Buffalo Trace 😀  C'mon weekend!

i think uncle nearest sources from Dickel so you may be able to just get some Dickel bottled in bond type and save you 30$. other dickels you might try are the new Smooth Ambler old scouts that say single barrel 13 year. 

if you like the buffalo trace you might step into 1792 full proof, russells reserve single barrels (the red bottle) or ultimately Old Forester 1920

Shouldn’t “ultimately” end with some Garrison Brothers or did they cut you from the payroll?
