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

    Either a Knob Creek Single Barrel, that the place I worked for did or a A.H.Hirsch 20yo...I bought the Hirsch on Feb 14th 2000, don't remember exactly when the KCSB showed up...I may have actually had that back in 1998, but don't recall for sure...but I do still have them both.

    Mine was a case of WTRR101. After that it was a few bottles of Hancocks Reserve that were 27.99 a Liquor Barn!

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

    Mine was ERSB 10/90. I really liked this bourbon from the start, and always had a bottle or two around. When I had the chance to get four bottles at a very good price, from a store that was going out of business, I snapped them up. Voila! My bunker was born. I currently have two open, four in the bunker, and one on the way. Among the bottles I have had, are specialty bottlings from Julio's, Binny's, & Otto's. The bottle I have on the way is Julio's Angel's Share. Joe

    Three WTRR 101's after finding this site and getting the information that it would no longer be available. I still have a couple of them up there behind many others...I never imagined my shelf would look like that!

    I got very lucky when I started to get serious about bourbon.
    I got an A H Hirsch 20yo at a store here in Jackson for $120.00, three years ago.
    It is still bunkered.

    Cygnus,

    This is a great initial post.

    I'm really enjoying this thread. After rereading this, I should add my bunker was started on 12-30-04.

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

    This is a great thread! My first score for the bunker was a pair of Wild Turkey Rare Breed 1996s & a BHC VSOF -- then the floodgates blew wide open after that.

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

    Well, my very first was a 1993 Maker's blue wax (only for collection purposes). The one I bought for drinking at some point in the future was a Michters single Barrell, since I still have yet to find a Hirsch blue wax.

    Wine woukd have been the early 90s with Chetue St Jean's later harvest wines.

    Spirit was Pyrate rum for $15 in the christmas box release in 2006 when the going rate was $35.

    Bourbon was the Weller when it was ~$25 a bottle and the going rate in CA & AZ was $45.

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

    My first purchase solely aimed at placement in the bunker was a trio of WTRR101. I had other items set aside as backups for open bottles, but these were destined for long term storage.
