    What was the 1st bottle you bunkered away?

    Mine was a '06 WTKS from barrel no. 67 on rick 30 in wherehouse D. I purchased it about a month ago and choose it because it was the oldest one they had (the rest were '07s).

    Re: What was the 1st bottle you bunkered away?

    The first bottle I recall bunkering, that is not opening within a few days of purchase, was a PVW15. I received my annual review and it was very good so I wanted to treat myself to something nice.

    After trying a Stagg and then Handy, I went back and picked up 2 08 Staggs and a Handy to start the bunker. I'll probably add a few more too.

    First bottle that I really considered "bunkered" was a WTRB. That is if you don't count just buying an extra bottle of this or that. That was before joining SB.com so I didn't even use the term bunker.

    WLW 08.

    When I started seriously tasting bourbons in December 2008, WLW 08 was the first one that really impressed me. It had wow-factor, if you will.

    He was the first bunker member. He now has friends of different creeds and colors.
