Was able to get a bottle of Chapter 5 through a lottery draw.  Haven't cracked it yet, but reviews seem to favor prior chapters.  Also randomly found a bottle of Stagg Jr in a case at a local grocery for $99.  Crazy that a year ago you could buy that on the secondary for $200-250, now I have seen it for $300 - $500.

Man, I got my Stagg Jr. on the shelf for like $59 a few years ago. Bourbon has gotten out of hand. I am about to head to Scotch, Rum, and Tequila / Mezcal for my barrel spirits.
But I like to throw handfuls...

As you know, barrel aging does not require expensive booze to make a great finished product.

Are the tariffs the last administration put on Scotch still in effect? I noticed prices at my store and whiskey bar increase on Scoch.

I did a Mezcal tasting in Mexico recently (my wife got the worm). If you can get the stuff that uses wood instead of propane for cooking the pinas that's the really good stuff.

No tariffs on scotch anymore but supply chain issues remain on that and Irish whiskey.  As consumers have grown frustrated with bourbon shortages,  more have dabbled in the world of scotch which has also made the classics harder to find

I'm hoping that the taters all jump to mescal and let bourbon get back to normal.
