    nothing new in the PA stores!

    so i went to visit the family in New Castle DE and picked up a bottle of George Dickel 12...never had it before.

    and for fun and education, a little bottle of Evan Williams 7 year...

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    It seems everytime I tell myself "OK, this should keep me stocked for awhile.", I run into a store and walk out with a couple of hundred dollars worth of more bourbon. This week it was:
    1 BHC OCPR
    1 BHC Centennial
    1 2008 WLW
    1 2008 Handy
    2 Univ. Tennessee orange wax Maker's Mark
    1 Parker's Heritage 27 yr
    1 1.75 Buffalo Trace
    1 Weller 12yr

    I'm gonna have some splainin' to do when Mrs. Smokinjoe gets the AMEX bill.

    Does this commemorate a sports achievement (Perhaps the Lady Vols?) or does MM do waxes of some schools on a regular basis?

    Roger, I don't know. I picked them up as gifts for friends in the neighborhood who are UT alums. If it is commemorative, the Lady Vols would be the team deserving of it...not this year's football team, for sure.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    Cleaned out a small stash of 1994 and 1995 EWSB gift sets. The 94 seems to be a popular favorite on the boards and I liked the rocks glass/measuring cup combo that comes with the 95, so it's worthwhile even if the bottle itself isn't quite as good.

    Also asked for, and thought I was handed WLW and Handy Rye from BTAC 2008. After I left, I realized that they were actually 2007, both of which are already bunkered here. Took em back, they said they were all out of all 2008 BTAC (so I guess just hand the customer anything, huh?). I swapped out the WLW for a 2005 bottle.

    They didn't have any other Handy besides 2007, so I just kept it. Wasn't really planning on increasing stock on that one right now, but I guess it's ok. A time will come, sooner or later, that I'm glad I have it here. At least that's the hope...

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Autumn 2008

    I was very bad...I went to pick up some vet Rx and of course...a block away is Teddy's Liqour store....good prices but they used to be cash only...and I don't usually carry that much...but today I noticed the VISA etc. card on the door.....soooooooo...spur of the moment purchase..me bad:

    Picked up some new for me whiskeys....I think these are pretty good prices..what do you think?

    Old Overhold Rye... $10.49
    Old Weller 107......$15.99
    Old Fitz 1849.......$15.99
    Wathen's SB.,....$24.99

    And....
    Famous Grouse.. 17.99
    White Horse ....15.99
    The Teachers only came in the large bottle size.

    They had Eagle Rare...for about $23...but I did not need more at this time.
    P.S. the wife caught me re-arranging my cabinent....I operate on a strict "don't ask, don't tell" bourbon purchase philosophy!

    Don't be fooled by sales guys at the store that have no idea of what you are talking Rob. The 2008 BTAC has not made it to Michigan yet and will not be on our shelves for another couple weeks. Then you can get your 2008 stuff for the bunker.

    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.

    Cheers!

    I stopped by my favorite local state store to check on the special order that I made through ODLC (not in yet...dang). I had not bought anything since I was at KBF, so I picked up a bottle of J.T.S Brown BIB.

    I mean, I was there. I couldn't leave empty handed, right?

    Also Rob, those EWSB's you got are pre-fire HH.
    Some say they are some of the best.
    Early November of '96 there was a fire that destroyed the HH stills.
    They now distill in Louisville.
