When I first created this segment I was calling it Frugal Finds. I'm a frugal guy and love the hunt of finding a great deal which I why I felt that was an easy name, but Mike suggested I use another NY term I taught him and have a segment called Deadass Deals. He suggested this just a day after I uploaded this. So this is the one and only episode of Frugal Finds, as it's now known as Deadass Deals. I explain Deadass in another podcast episode.
This was an amazing find from Hi-Time Wine Cellars which is a liquor store in Costa Mesa, CA. They also have an online web store, which is where I purchased my bottle. www.hitimewine.net
This bottle typically sells for around $60 for Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength edition. It comes in at the legal limit proof so it's quite different from the regular Bulleit Bourbon. I had 4 other bottles in my shopping cart (all of which were GREAT prices too) and decided to add a bourbon to my order since I never had one. It wasn't until it arrived that I realized I didn't order the regular version...much to my surprise since I only paid $26! For anyone who is interested, this was batch #2.
*I also paid $44 for Laphroaig Quarter Cask, $50 for Johnnie Walker Green, Aberfeldy 12 for $34, and Compass Box Great King Street for $39. Each one of these could have been their own episode of Deadass Deals at those prices...especially the QC.
The full audio from the podcast can be found below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
