Out shopping this morning and had no intentions of getting any bourbon,
at least that's what I tell myself,
but I saw a bottle of Russell's Reserve at state minimum price.
What the heck I thought it is 10 year old Turkey after all.
I'll open it later.

I stopped to check out a store that I hadn't been in before, but I really didn't need anything. For some reason I have a difficult time just checking out the bourbon without taking some home with me.
I'm gona have to work on that...
Picked up a WL Weller Special Reserve and a Old Fitz BIB.

Went to visit a friend in Milwaukee today. Stopped at a few places to see what I could find. A couple were recommended by a fellow SB member. There were a couple of nice stores with great selections and decent, if not odd prices. No dusties but a couple of good deals. Picked up a bottle of ER 10/90 and three OF Repeal Sets from one place. All on sale. My big score came while on the way back home. I stopped at the place I left a bunch of stuff last week. Upon further examination, I found a couple more interesting items. I spotted an older 1.75 of OGD BIB. It is still there. I also spotted three older 1.75's of Old Forester BIB. One of these is now in my possession. I also bought a BHC VSOF, a WTKS Pewter top, and the three Weller Centennials I left behind last week. I am a bit poorer, but also a bit happier. Cheers! Joe
PS. To top it off, an ER 101 bar mirror that I bought on ebay, was waiting for me when I got home.
