    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    At lunch I skipped out and picked up two liter bottles of Old Charter 8 year old today to complete my cleaning out of this brand from a local shop with old stock. The bottles were dated 02 on the bottom. I left one behind because it leaked all over the damned place when I went to check the date out. I walked out stinking of Bourbon and went back to my students after lunch. I certainly got some disdaining looks to day!

    Don't know how true this is.. but the guy at the liquor store told me that I was holding maybe one of the last bottles of PVW 15 that will be available in the state for the next 6 years...

    the two I have obtained were pretty much only saved for me b/c of connections.. so I don't know how true his statement was, but is seems very hard to come by around here.

    VA carries AA and AAA 10 star. One that I have not seen is the AA BIB. Liquor store in DC contacted to let me know that they got some BIB in and did I want a bottle....well of course I say.

    So....Sat I'll have a bottle of AA BIB at $13.95. The bourbon dude there claims it's over the top good.....we'll see.

    Greg,
    I wouldn't say it was "over the top good" but it's good, especially for 14 bucks.

    The Bib is young and spicey. I would say it is similar to a WT product in style....with a different mashbill. I get more corn out of the AA than the WT.

    As I have said before....I mix the Bib and the AAA 10yr to raise the proof on the AAA, per drink. It works for me.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    Thanks to a heads up from a local SB'r I was able to get a bottle of PVW 15, the last one I could find this side of the State! I had planned on getting at least two, so with my left over funds I picked up a Weller 107 and a Buffalo Trace. A quick computer search led me to the Eastern side of the State where my son is still in college. I found another PVW 15 as well as some VWFRR so he's bringing some home for me.
    I continue to find the State system poorly run and even more poorly informed, but it's not a complete wasteland and my shelves manage to stay stocked (on occasion more so from friendly SB'rs than the State of WA!!)
