261 - Sazerac Purchases Early Times, Visiting the Trail, and Fill Levels on Bourbon Community Roundtable #46 show art 261 - Sazerac Purchases Early Times, Visiting the Trail, and Fill Levels on Bourbon Community Roundtable #46

Bourbon Pursuit

Does the purchase of Early Times by Sazerac signal trouble in the water for Brown-Forman? We look at the motivation behind this and if tariffs could have a future impact as well.

And lastly, we ask ourselves what do we do with a bottle that only has 2 or 3 pours left? Finish it or save it?
