    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    This year's BTAC has arrived at Spec's in downtown Houston, as well as the latest Van Winkles.

    I picked up a WLW and a ORVW 10/107.

    They did not put the 10/12/15yo Van Winkles on the shelf as usual, you have to ask for them, and they will only sell one bottle per customer (I'm assuming of each expression). I guess they are trying to stretch them out to give more people a chance to have some.

    This is very true and I think for many places. I do the same here.

    Binny's trip today. Met up with TomH and Barb there. I got to meet Lost Pollito. I picked up a bunch of stuff for Em. He bought me a bottle of Weller 12. (I think) I got a bottle of 2008 BTAC ER, and a Binny's bottling of FRSB #1 for myself. There's also a bottle of Willett 27 year old that looks really good on my shelf. My buddy who went with me is happy too. He usually has a tough time finding the right Christmas present for his father in-law. His father in-law drinks Chivas. My friend (with a little help from his brother in-law) bought three different varieties/gift sets of Chivas for his father in-law, and is very happy knowing that he will be very pleased come Christmas. All in all a fantastic day!


    PS Thanks for the hospitality Joe. Thank Bret again for us too

    Bourbon for breakfast, now that's an idea! I don't know if American Honey is compatible with a diabetics life style. I think WT101 is.

    well, i usually take a spoonful of raw honey in the morning and/or with my oatmeal....figured i'd alter it a bit!

    anyways, after this 'breakfast' (see notes at http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ad.php?t=11175 !), i did 'chase' is with V8, orange juice and an egg/toasted salami sandwich
    HUP!
