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

    I took a little road trip today to take delivery on a few units of the Tony and Oscar (or was that Oscar and Tony?) bottling of FRSB, a couple more ORVW 10/107 and a pewter topped WTKS.

    I finally pulled the trigger on a couple of BHC Weller Centennials that I have kept in the memory bank. While picking them up, I noticed the store had the Old Forester Repeals at the ridiculous price of $12.99. So, I picked up 2 of them, too.

    I like to call it the Curtis/Hightower bottle.
    We had some help picking it out but Tony and I convinced two prominent principals in the deal to chose the one we did. (thanks Sal & Jim)

    Not today, but yesterday I bit the bullet and picked up two bottles of WTKS. Bottled in 1998. Haven't open one yet... Maybe tonight. Joe

    I had to go to Louisville today and I have a strict rule that whenever I am in Kentucky I must buy bourbon!

    Nothing fancy though, just picked up an Old Forester Signature and an Old Weller 107. These are new for me, I have never had the chance to try these before.

    Edit: Now I'm confused but that is pretty easily done. The bottle of Weller that I bought today says Old Weller The Original 107 Proof. It says 7 summers old on the label. When I try to look up info on this, I keep finding OWA but my label does not have the word Antique on it at all. It was bottled in Frankfort and Its a 375 ml bottle. I see two sets of numbers on the bottom of the bottle... 23 and then a 84. So my question... is this Old Weller out of production now or has the label just been changed? I don't find this listed on their website either.

    Hondo, I'm pretty sure that is a recent bottling. They currently put that older style label on the 375ml bottles, I'm not sure why. And the newest bottles that just recently came out have that 84 on the bottom too, at least the ones I've seen.

    On Saturday, I found some bottles of Beam Distillers edition 7yr at a local store so I picked one up. Haven't tried it yet though!
