I was headed to my evening class at the University last night with a heavy heart. It was the start of Rosh Hashanah and for a number of reasons I could not miss this class. That is a long story. I pulled out of work and headed to the end of the block that I usually do not pass by and noticed a new liquor store had opened. So, I stepped in. Low and behold I noticed a few bottles of Old Charter 8 year old (very rarely seen in these parts) and a bottle of I.W. Harper 80 proof (never seen in these parts). The Old Charter turned out to be about ten years old and the I.W. Harper had a date of 84 on the bottle. Well, I took the Harper home, along with some other stuff I will post about in another post. I intend to go back for the Old Charter soon. Why do you reckon a brand new store in an upscale Latino suburb with almost no demand for Bourbon would stock or even be able to obtain these older bottles? I was surprised to see the 1984 dated bottle in that brand new upscale store. Very unusual.
