My Take

I'll be entering for the Old Fitzgerald and Weller. I don't have a desire for the expensive bottles and I'm not usually a fan of wheat. However, I know there is a HUGE secondary market in Ohio (even though it's technically illegal) and these bottles will fetch a giant price. For instance, I couldn't find the Heaven Hill online (I think this is actually a 27 year, not 17 year like the State website says) and it's retailing for $2-3k. The Michter's 20 is going for 7k and up... As always, best of luck to my readers. I hope we win all the bottles!
