About time to resupply the Barton and see what might be on special.
A fifteen year old bottle of something with label that shows a well dressed gentleman smoking a cigar.
Rescued a 2012 WLW from the wild thanks to a very generous heads up from another SB member! Had my father pick it up for me since he was closer and I got the impression from him that the staff in the store, to include the whiskey "manager", didn't really have a particularly good understanding of what BTAC was.
So perhaps it is just as well that it has been secured before it ends up getting mixed with some Dr. Pepper...
In the meantime I picked up a new wire shelf system to try to get some of the rapidly propagating collection up off the floor. Of course a new rack means room for more liquor so in addition to the WLW I picked up a 12yo and 21yo El Dorado rum to keep the 15yo ED company!
4RLEsB 2011, they had the 2012, but i've already got a few of those thought i'd compare.
Picked up a bottle of 86 proof Barton.
I picked up a Four Roses OESK recipe single barrel from Liquor Barn, which was selected by a group called Bourbon Women. The proof is 62.1%. It's resting in the glass as I type this.
On a related note, I picked up a 2010 release Thomas H Handy yesterday. This was the 126.9 proof version. This was my first THH, and it took me MANY passes to finally decide to pick one up. I had to choose between the 126.9 (2010) and 128.6 proof (2011), so hopefully I made the right choice on years. I am glad I finally caved in. It is very good!
Merry Christmas to me! :D
