    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    What a bummer Greg.
    I hate it when retailers screw up an order.
    Well I'll help you out.
    Just ship the extras up to me to free up space on your table.
    You can thank me later.

    Well, at least you're sitting pretty with bourbon and rye. I wish my wife knew how to pull that trick!

    Enjoy!

    I actually passed on this one, but am still considering it so posted here. The Hirsch Selection Small Batch Bourbon, 4yo according to BevMo site (?), but no details in the Preiss press release, or from a search here and google. Anyone that has tried this? Worth 35+ dollars?

    For $35.00 you can do a heck of a lot better.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    I was up in Wisconsin visiting the in-laws for Thanksgiving and had a chance to go whiskey shopping in Madison. Picked up a few bottles that I not seen in my neck of the woods. This is all virgin territory for me!

    Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2007
    Willett Pot Still Reserve
    Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye
    George T. Stagg
    Death's Door Whisky
    Penderyn AC Single Malt Welsh

    The Death's Door is a wheat whisky distilled in Madison and made from wheat grown in Door County. It is clear as vodka and doesn't have an age statement, bottled at 80 proof; I'm a little bit scared.

    I'm extremely fired up about finally getting my hands on a Stagg, and I have an intense curiosity regarding the Penderyn.

    There were a few VW Lot B's at $39 that I passed on, since I have a couple in reserve. And I probably should have grabbed an Old Fitz BIB just because it's not in my market.

    Man, this website has really expanded my awareness of what is out there, and shopping when I travel is a blast!

    Visited the in-laws in Spokane for Thanksgiving, threw on my Bourbon Hound hat and made a trip into Idaho to see what they have. Picked up Bulleit, AAA, EC18, and Baker's, which I either couldn't find at my local liquor store or it was cheaper than Washington.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    On Friday was down in "the old country" for thanksgiving and picked up some stuff that is old hat to most but new to me. Dickel Master Distiller's whatever, Rittenhouse BIB, Old Overholt, Old Fitz BIB and a single barrel BT selected by the intoxicant retailer. Had a sample of the Jefferson and Beam's Ri. Oh and finished Chuck's book today too. Great stuff. The wife is thinking of writing a business case on MM's marketing based on a chapter in it.
