    Re: Interesting Finds

    I was at it again yesterday. This time I found (didn't buy) a bottle of RHF with a BIB label around the neck. The bottle was shaped ever so slightly different than the current one. The label, or lack of front label was completely different. Etching was there, but no gold horse. The stopper was weird too. Turned it upside down to look at the numbers on the bottom, and the bourbon flowed into the stopper. The man at the counter said that he could get a lot of those, but the one's that look like a current bottle (with gold horse) he said was a limited editon/Xmas bottle or something. I really don't think he knew what he was talking about. Oh, they also had Hancock's Reserve at $52.00 a bottle. I passed. I thanked him and left. Joe

    Jacob's Well is ok and unusual enough to give as a gift. I bought a case when it first came out but decided the mingling rebarreling experiment didn't produce a real difference and it was not the equal of the 8 yr 90 proof Beam black label.

    Here's a couple of picks of a 1/10 pint of Boots And Saddle that my wife found for me at an antique place a couple weeks ago. Joe

    Found a stash of Hirsch 16 Year Old Goil Foil for $80 Aus each (roughly $55 USD). Cant complain with the price and I love the stuff.

    Re: Interesting Finds

    I found a stash of three where the store was willing to sell me all three for $450 USD.

    I think you should be seeing a buy signal.
