Parkersback, I'll have to post when I crack them open..
I though I'd try to hold out until my birthday, but as many around here will agree, with something not yet tasted and known to be good, it's really hard to wait! :)
Two Pappy Lot B and a Sazerac, good day.
Best regards, Tony
I just picked up a bottle of WLW 2012 at $70. I believe it was T Comp who have the glowing review, so I excited to crack it open.
While I don't actually have it in hand right now, my brother (in Tejas) scored me a bottle of VWFRR today:
2012 George Stagg. It's sublime!!
2x EWSB 2000 on the way home from work. Nice surprise. My favorite of the series so far.
+1 Van Winkle Rye
Jim Rutledge was at the Blarney last night in Toledo for a signing and tasting. I had never been to one of these before so I rounded up 4 buddies and we made a day trip out of it. Jim spoke for an hour and we really enjoyed his talk. One of my buddies has been home brewing for 20+ years and he was asking Jim one question after another. When he was done talking, Jim signed bottles of the private bottling (OBSV recipe) that the Blarney had recently acquired. All of my buddies purchased a bottle but I got three of them. I'm going to donate one to a local auction and keep the two for myself.
Then this morning, my local liquor store called me. I gave him a wish list so he could work with his distributors. He was able to obtain a Stagg for me. I can't wait to crack that one open.
