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

    1st burbon pruchase and 1st addition to the bunker.

    Cliff ( Barrel_Proof ) and the members of the Single Barrel Society helped me select a 14 yr old barrel of Stitzel Weller bourbon distilled on the last day of production. BT bottled the bourbon as Weller 12 yr old 90 proof.

    Thanks again for the help from Cliff and the members of the Single Barrel Society.

    Thanks to Mark Brown for making this barrel purchase possible.

    I found a bunch of boxed BHC bottles a few years ago, so I loaded up on them for the bunker. It turned out OCPR is one of my favorite whiskeys, so now I'm always on a search for it.

    Mine was a fall 2005 GTS. I was actually on my way home from the liquor store when I decided to buy it and had to stop at an ATM and go back. :]

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

    Hirsch 16 Blue Wax. I bought a bottle (about $80) from a liquor store in San Francisco and fell in love. Bought a second for the bunker. As I examined the consequence of forever losing out on my favorite Bourbon I started to buy everyone I found over the next few years (see avatar).

    The largest single purchase was a case of Russell Reserve 101. That was my favorite every day pour and I wasn't as partial to the 90 proof.

    My first to the bunker was a bottle of Lot B. Interestingly enough, I still have that bottle unopened.

    My first Seek and Bunker mission, was for some of the early 2000's Wathen's. Quickly followed by an 04 Stagg grabfest.

    My first and only bunker is a WT 8 yr old from a Mexico duty free everything else I drink. I will this too one of these days as I bought two of them that day and have drank one of them.
