    10/90. This will probably be the next bourbon I open.

    The VW website doesn't show a retailer or distributor for AL and I've found only a few bottles across the state line in Pensacola, FL. In the two stores where I've found some, the folks there said it was hard to get. The Van Winkle selections are something I'll be looking for on any out-of-state travels in the future.

    On the recommendation of Emerald I picked up the Julio's RHF..... this is a very nice albeit addicting pour. Side by side with a standard bottling it revealed a deeper flavor concentration, a toffee sweetness and a much silkier mouth feel. The most significant difference was the length of finish which was much longer and deeper with the Julio's.

    So true. I have to be careful when I open on of these. They go down so easy and work so well with food and 'gars.

    It is very hard to tell it is a 100 proof while you sitting, sipping and chatting.

    Bought a WLW SR for my brother-in law's birthday....he's a Maker's fan and I'm trying to convert him. I also picked one up for myself of course...it's in the freezer chillin' out.

    I'm also giving him four minis of some of my choicest open bottles...this year's ER17, WTRB96, OCPR & ORVW 10/107 (he's going to love that one). I'm going to blow his doors off....he's very new to bourbon tasting, but not to drinking. I'll post his notes in the Maine chronicles....

    Yesterday I found a WT12 cheesy gold label, with a 91 imprinted on the bottom of the bottle and a date stamp of 12-04-91 on the back label.

    I stopped by to see Mr. Jaboro @ A&L Wine Castle today.
    I couldn't leave without a Lot B and an Old Rip 10/107.

    Sounds good, right about now - but i need to get more work done. Come 5pm and I'm getting out the Julio's RHF. Good call... BB
