    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    Picked up an ER17 as a gift for a neighbor. While I was there I also got a bottle of the Woodford Reserve Sweet Mash (WR SM?).

    One of the VA boy's (Greg maybe) Loves the 1995 EWSB so I would not worry about you pick ups there 94 is very good as well.

    Thanks guys!

    I am a little surprised that the guys at Grape Vine didn't know about the BTAC. I kinda had them pegged as a little more in-the-loop than most. Oh well, had I received accurate info about the 2008 release, I'd have put that $120 towards some other bottles.

    Live and learn, I suppose...I need to bring a proof list next time, so I can be sure what I'm handed before I make my way to checkout.

    I think so too. I'm pretty sure that in my area Weller 107 can't be had for less than $20, I seldom see Wathen's around but the few times I have it was around $35, iirc. As for the OO, a couple of dollars less than what I've seen it for but I'm really not a fan of that one so I don't look for it.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    A buddy of mine just returned from a trip to TN. and brought me back a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch. That's a nice treat I look forward to opening!
    I had another buddy who just got back from Thailand, he brought me a bottle of Thai Whiskey of some type. The label is all in Thai so I have no clue exactly what it is.
    A little search turned up that it is Mee Khong Whiskey...pretty rough stuff...
    A couple nice Liquid surprises.

    Nothing too big today. Was in Meijer's getting some groceries and happened upon Wild Turkey 101 gift sets, with a fifth and two rocks glasses. Wasn't really planning on buying bourbon, but since they were priced at $17.99 (under state min, I think) and the glasses provide some extra value, what the heck? Not like Wild Turkey is going to go to waste around me

    I grabbed two, but just might have to go back and load up.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    Last week bought two bottles of PVW 13 rye to try and another bottle of the PVW15 just because, hahaha. The PVW 13 rye is definitely as good as everyone is saying and on par with all the premium van winkle lineup that I love and drink mostly. Also bought the ORVW10-107 to try as a daily pour since my PVW15 and GTS are draining way too fast as a daily pour.

    Today, I picked up three bottles of George Stagg 2008 and 1 bottle of the Eagle Rare 17. This is perfect since I just finish up my GTS07 bottle. I'm also excited to try the ER17 as I have not tried it before and read some good review for the 2008 release. I haven't seen any notes on the 2008 GTS or ER17 on SB.com yet I think and was wondering if anyone tried them yet?

    Cheers

    Forget "might", I did. Added another 4 sets, even though one was on its back, which makes me wonder about the cork? Not sure how long it'd been like that or how long a cork can hold up doused with 101-proof alcohol. If the cork ends up ok, I got six bottles and 12 rocks glasses for the state minimum for five bottles. Good enough for me.

    I did pass a different display in the store where they were all marked $20.99. I wonder if the cheaper ones were from a prior year...

    Nice job Rob! I love it when you can find whiskey for less than state min! Oh I should mention, nice new avatar! I think I know that guy!

    Cheers!
