    You hit that right on the nose MJL, I just checked my receipt and sure enough it was Denny's. It definitely looked like an interesting store which I would check out more closely if I had the time (impatient wife waiting in the car).
    I was also tempted by a bottle of Wild Turkey American Spirit. It had a Jimmy Russel signature on it in gold script. I don't know if that is part of the regular packaging or if it had actually been signed. Anyway I passed it up as it was too expensive to risk it breaking or disappearing from my suitcase on the flight home. Tom

    Saturday I was lucky enough to find a bottle of 15 yr old Pappy Van Winkle and then I got a souvenir barrel decanter of Evan Williams Master Distillers Select at the Bourbon Heritage Center while in Bardstown...Two great bourbons..

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    Been thoroughly enjoying getting into the world of Bourbon.. Recent purchases:

    Four Roses Single Barrel *
    Elijah Craig 12y x 2*
    Weller Antique 107*
    PVW 15
    ORVW 10/107 x 4*
    VWSR 12y Lot B x 3*

    * tasted
    Weller - took me several pours to really get into it. Love it neat and at what a great price.
    Four Roses - only had a small pour , but loved it
    EC12y - wow.. tasty tansy and @ 21 a bottle
    Lot B - well - my first bottle is almost gone.. hence the reason I went out and bought the last 3 -
    ORVW 10/107 - prob my favorite of all.. and I worked real hard to get the four bottles. so glad I did.

    add to this the PVW 20 I popped 2 weeks ago and the Stagg 07 I am picking up on the way home(!!!) - this "deviation" from beer is turning into something more of a main hobby..and I like it.

    on deck -
    ER12 .. found a small stash for $22
    OGD BIB - found 1 liter for $21
    OGD 114 - found 750 for $21

    seems like good deals in my neck of the country

    No mention of the Pappy 15 (which I'm presently enjoying). It's my favorite (er... tied with Pappy 20 most times) Lot B is awesome, Antique a miracle at <$20 ( I picked one up for $14 a few weeks back). The ORVW 10/107 is one of the great values imo. I bunker as many van winkles as I can afford.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    Anyone have any info on the mashbills for the 4R's I got the other day at Binny's??

    They were picked by Brett. I got bottles from barrels 1 and 3.

    OFBB '07 -- the last one I know of in the Mile High City. The '06s are somewhat easier to find, for some reason.
