164. "ok hold up"
In response to In response to 0


          

I haven't really bought much whisky in the last four years, but WTF happened to the market? fucking regular Buffalo Trace is sold out everywhere? an insane resale market with a bunch of Rudy Kurniawan fakes?

I remember when Pappy and Japanese whisky went crazy, but now we're at the point where $25 bourbons I used to see lined up by the dozens are now unattainable and double the price when allocated?

somebody explain this shit to me
