    ok.. so I did go on a bit of a bourbon/whiskey spree. There were some bottles I have been wanting to add.

    Rittenhouse BIB x2 (first time ever seeing this in CT)
    Maker's Mark
    Pure Kentuckey XO
    Weller Special Reserve
    WT 101
    WT Rye
    WT Russel Reserve
    Eagle Rare
    Charter 101
    Woodford Reserve

    and added one more Lot B and two more ORVW 10/107 to the bunker.. at 29.99 I could not resist.

    I had a great weekend tasting all the new ones that I haven't had yet. The Russel Reserve was the stand out for me. Loved ever sip.. even if it's only the 90 proof one.
    WT Rye also shined, and of course the Rittenhouse lived up to expectations (though I really felt it needed a splash of water before it opened up.. a bit rough on the front before that)

    Wasn't that impressed with Charter 101 and Eagle Rare.. but I chalked that upto palate fatigue.


    as the bunker grows...

    I had a bit of luck today. The store I went to was out of ORVW 10/107, so I was planning on buying some 10/90 (I cut my 107 anyway). They had 6 PVW 15s in stock, so I grabbed four.

    When I left, I realized that my total seemed a bit cheaper than I was expecting. When I looked at the receipt, I realized that I was charged the ORVW 10/107 price (~$33) for my PVW 15s (listed as ~$53).

    I was quite happy.

    Chris, Make mine a double! Every once in a while Murphy's Law is reversed. Goes to prove you don't always get the short end of the stick. Nice bit of luck. Joe

    6 Lot B's.

    Acquiring them has soothed my bourbon nervosa a bit though I wish it were more.

    I have a feeling that once the first one hits the bin I will start plotting a resupply.

    Damn that's a fine price - $US132 for 4 x bottles! Even in Aust dollar terms that is a find ($AU192)

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    picked up a few more to add to the list.

    Saz 18
    Rock Hill Farms
    Another Handy
    Hirsch Selection Small Batch Reserve

    and heading out at lunch today to pick up a ER 17 i was able to locate. Trying hard to convince myself that a half bottle of WLW and one in the bunker is enough, and I really don't need one more. It's not going so well.

    I'm in the same situation, I really want another WLW bunkered and I'm afraid I'll probably crumble under the weight tonight after work.

    Got my first bottle of WT101 today. I feel that I am pretty far along in my bourbon journey to be trying it just now. Maybe I'll start a thread "What bourbon should you have tried by now, but haven't?"

    Anyway, I'll give it a try this weekend.

    Well, I bit the bullet today. Had the day off and my wife and I went looking for some new dining room furniture. (and dusty/bourbon hunting) Had a nice day. I think we finally found the dining room set we've been looking for, and I also found a bottle of Pappy 20 at a price I finally couldn't pass up. $93.99. So, now I have a bottle of Pappy 20 for my stash. Don't know when I'll crack it open, but it's there in case I feel the need. I'm a happy camper. Joe
