ER17 and Saz 18. also Weller 12 and Russel's reserve rye
After seeing so many positive posts for Weller 12 year old, I picked up two bottles at under $30. Also picked up a couple more Weller Antique 107.
A 2012 Sazerac 18 an hour east of LA
Another $34 Blanton's - same price as Elmer T. here.
FWIW, I stopped at a place today to pick up a little Xmas present for myself. They had Blanton's for $62. :bigeyes: It's nice to see some places that usually get screwed with selection and price, finally come out on the good end for once.
OK bourbon purists, time to avert your eyes! Finished bourbon fans like myself may be interested though. I am one which might be a component of my interest in Irish whiskey more so than scotch.
I must say the Party Source was remarkably efficient. After placing my order for the Angel's Envy Cask Strength on Wednesday afternoon my package arrived today! For FedEx Ground that was pretty quick!
The AECS comes in its very own pine box, perfect for solemn ceremony and burial once the bottle is empty! The hardware on the box is also pretty fancy looking. The bottle appears the same as the basic AE but a different color printing and some adjustment to allow for a little label indicating proof. Comparing the regular with the CS it is clear how much deeper red the color is in the CS to the regular.
I may even try to make a trip up to Louisville for the "Event" if I can make it work with my schedule. Want to get my money's worth!

Also picked up a few other things to include the Bowman TPS Barrel #45 and Ferrand Pineau des Charentes (not bourbon but still lovely stuff!) which I haven't seen locally.
Most of you know that I can be long winded at times. :rolleyes: Here I go again. :lol: To make a short story long, I've been putting in some long hours at work lately, plus I got my Xmas bonus this week. :bigeyes: My wife told me to go ahead and treat myself to a couple of bottles of bourbon I've had my eye on for a long time. (Yes she's a keeper.) After work, I headed to a store near me, and picked up a couple of semi-dusty 1.75's of Old Forester BIB. They've been sitting on the shelf of this store for ages, and I've been contemplating on whether to buy them or not. Yeah, I paid a little bit too much, but what the heck? It's good, I really like it, it's not made anymore, and even though OF Signature is 100 proof, and a pretty decent bourbon, it just ain't the same. After Weller's, my favorites are BIB's. :yum:
I just got this from a big auction site for only $400!
