    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    Actually it was yesterday, but picked up a bottle of WT101. I've been enjoying it at bar gigs, and now have a bottle at the house. I mostly drank it neat on gigs (though the bar I played at last night made me their house 7-up-ified sweet Wisconsin OF's using Turkey 101...interesting spin on what should really be called the Cheesehead cocktail or something.) I just made an Old Fashioned using Robert Hess's recipe...outstanding! (I did add a couple drops of Fee's orange bitters along with the regular Angostura...works well.)

    I'm just a bourbonewbie, but I'm starting to add bottles. Where to hide my stash....

    I saw a bottle of Old Charter Proprietor's Reseve today, it was on a bottom shelf and I could tell if it was a "slope shoulder" or not.
    So I picked it up and there was a WLWeller Centennial behind it.
    Of course I bought it.

    That gives me 31 different Turkey labels.
    I'm gunning for you HighTower.

    I still need a Freedom, Stampede, Heritage and two others whose names escape me now.
    One has what looks like platinum on the lower part of the bottle.
    And the other one looks like a big perfume bottle with an indented circle in the middle where the label is.
    Platinum would actually be pewter, the 17 year, and the indented circle would the Legend Single Barrel (see centered in photo, sorry about the others as I didn't feel like moving everything); therefore making me wonder if you have the regular issue Legend?

    I used to have 3 Heritages now I am down to 2 and will soon have an extra Legend SB, I won't say I can't be talked out of the extra(s) but it is pretty doubtful.

    And good luck catching Scott, I just don't see it happening, he's King Turkey!

    The suspense is killing me...was it a slope shoulder?

    Nope, not a "slope shoulder".
    I didn't buy it and now I wish I did.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    I purchased three bourbons and a TN whiskey.

    Lot B
    OGD 100
    Old Forester
    Dickel No. 12

    I've never had any of these before, and I'm looking forward to trying them, especially the Lot B.

    They sell Four roses in MO now? I jump the border and buy a lot of my bourbon in MO, this is great news.
