    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    I had a real dilema today, I read on the forum about Eagle rare 17 yr, and was sure I had seen it at a store in town. When I got there I found it was the 10 yr 90 proof. It was $67 Cdn a bit more that $10 over Knob Creek which I also read here was overpriced. however I don't think you can compare Canadian prices to American. I also saw Evan Williams single barrel at $50. So I bought the Buffalo Trace. After racing home and tasting the Buffalo Trace I was wishing I had picked one of the other 2. Alberta now has the most expensive alcohol in Canada, at least Ill be in San Francisco next week and I plan to pick up something good.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    This morning I went out and got new rubber for my pick-up.
    Afterwards I stopped at a store I have never been in just on a hunch.
    It paid off, I got a bottle of W L Weller Centennial and a 200ml of Evan Williams 7 year old.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    I was in southern Illinois yesterday and went into an old liquor store. Found a bottle of "David Nicholson 1843". It literally had a coat of dust on on it, but is it really a 'dusty'? Does anyone have some info on this? I did search and the most recent reference is from 2007. What did I buy?

    I think it was Stiztel-Weller's bottom shelf brand.
    Does it have a bottle year on the bottom?

    There is an '07' on the bottom of the bottle, among other things. Below is a picture of my purchase.

    Just a guess but I'd say it is a recent bottle by the same folks that bottle Ezra Brooks.

    Blitz,

    Does the bottle have a UPC? What is it? There are UPC "look-up" sites that may help.

    Search some more, you'll find quite a bit of discussion regarding this bottle. I don't know that anyone ever verified, but the assumption was pretty much a blatant lie that it is BIB Bourbon from DSP KY 16 as it states on the bottle. When I was working in St Louis a couple winters ago it was everywhere in abundance! I tasted it and honestly thought it was decent, kind of even tasted like SW so who knows...
