    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Winter '08/'09

    In keeping with Virus_Of_Life's observation that winter has begun (and as a Chicago resident who took three times as long to get home from work last night due to a heavy snowstorm plus winds plus 15 MPH drivers minus plows minus sand minus road salt, I am convinced), Here's a new "What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today?" thread for Old Man Winter.

    I warmed up with Weller Antique. Very worthy pour; noticeably different from ORVW 10/107 - not as much depth or richness as ORVW has - but quite stellar on its own.

    We're very fortunate to have quite excellent whiskey available to us at very reasonable prices. This one is $18.99 at Binny's.

    You beat me to it, snowing like crazy here at the moment and that says winter to me!!

    Not necessarily today, but over the past few weeks I've bought various things, some Hirsch, Fighting Cock, Wild Turkey and others.

    Got a bottle of OGD BIB and went out on a limb to try something I hadn't tried before - 101 proof "Old Ezra"

    Did a little Christmas shopping today and a bottle of WTAS found its way home with me. It was the only one on the shelf and what was I to do? I couldn't just leave it there all by itself. Would you?

    Resistance became futile.......grabbed the last 06 Handy on the shelf last night at a local.....last one anywhere in west TN that I have seen. Hopefully still out there for other hunters.

    Got a parcel today with 4 roses 120. 51+38 shipping. A very, very good price. I did also win a bottle today also on American EBay. WTAS for 71+54 shipping. A real dissent price as well I think.

    One of Santa's elves stopped by my house early this year. He came in the form of a UPS man. Straight from Santa himself in Ohio, I received a 3 bottle case of the 08 edition of George T Stagg. This coincides perfectly with the beginning of my winter break. Life is good.
