I'm already planning a shopping trip to the liquor store to keep me stocked up until 2019.

Cheap tiki torches and a Papa Johns catered confederate lives matter parade where every attendee is encouraged to bring his sister and feel free to lick her?

Alcohol doesn't freeze at human-ok temps, so why worry about taking it outside?

/It freezes at human-f*cked.

Friend of mine says you should make peach syrup all summer, and peach brandy all winter. Hardwood fire takes care of both problems.

You have a funny idea of how conservative Ohio is. We have a derp problem, but we aren't that bad. Columbus has one of the biggest LBGT communities in the nation.

Liquor?  Liquor?  I don't even know her.

Jojo_TheDogFacedBoy: GLENFIDDICH REPLICA


Meh. The Glenmorangie is $3 more expensive here in Aridzona and the Glenfiddich replica is $2 less expensive at Total Wine and More. No great shakes.

The Absolut cilantro was the first thing I noticed. Why?

/Mmmm... Ouzo...

Sterno 3 cans for 5.00, or 2 for 10.00.

Charlottesville aint conservative either; those freaks will go anywhere for the promise of cheap tiki torches, Papa Johns, and their sisters

It's worthy of a fark thread by itself. "Would you pay money to drink vodka that tastes like cilantro? Absolutly"

Looks like a sensible cut of slow movers, and some consolidation of sizes. I see they cut the half-pint of Sailor Jerry, but not the more practical sizes.

I work PT at a State Liquor agency and I sent this list to our liquor clerk a couple of days ago. He was cussing up a storm because not only do they have to prep for the inventory in the new system, but now people are asking him about whether he can get these bottles in LOL

These two should as well.  Ardbeg is a decent Islay.  It's generally my third go-to after Laphroaig and Bowmore.

ARDBEG ALLIGATOR $87.56 $52.99 750 mL (Fifth)
ARDBEG AURIVERDES $91.99 $55.49 750 mL (Fifth)

I had no idea Ohio was on the state store scheme, also was unaware that there were that many flavors of vodak. DeKuyper and Pucker  were/are Ohio made so someone didn't get their kickback.

FightDirector: GLENFIDDICH REPLICA 1963


Does "replica" mean they can reproduce the flavor of 1963?
Never-mind, I googled it.
I like Scotch whiskey, but right now even the "discount " prices are the high end of my budget.
Cheers

Than the discounted price?

/this is nothing new, Ohio does this every few years
Balvenie 17 Year Old Peated Cask
Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year Old
Ardbeg Auriverdes (nose of smoked bacon...yes please)
Glenmorangie Bacalta Private Edition

/going to look for those 4, any other suggestions shall be noted

Newsflash: State liquor stores discontinue products that don't sell well. Slash prices on remaining stock to open shelf space!


What a concept! No one has ever done this before?
 
2018-01-03 09:26:21 AM  
The funny thing is, this was greenlit, then pushed back until after the stores closed.  I think someone wanted to make sure he got first crack.

Yeah, but Columbus is the southern end of the sane part of the state, once you go south of 70/270 you're in The South. Cinci is a bit of purple but culturally it's more a part of Kentucky than it is the upper midwest like Cleveland/Columbus/Toledo.

Well, we've got state control with private distribution and private retail, they sold off the state stores back in the 90's but because of mandatory markups and absolute control of wholesale prices they can effectively set the retail price.
