    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    After seeing the activity in the thread about Maker's, I picked up a bottle for the heck of it.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    Went out hunting with Tommyboy38 yesterday. At the end of the day I had a Lot B, a liter of WT 8 export, four bottles of Old Fitz BIB from 97, and a tax stamped 200 ml of Benchmark from 1978. Now comes the hard part. Gotta make room for all this stuff in my cabinet. Looks like some rearranging is in order. It's probably a good time to take an inventory too. Between trades, finishing bottles, and getting new stuff, I'm not exactly sure what I have any more. Joe

    My buddy just got back from NY so I had him haul me back a 1L OWA.

    Not a bad deal for $22. I'm willing to give this juice another shot at that price.

    Went dusty shopping in Nacogdoches Texas today as I finished with my appointments early...disapointed that I didn't find anything worthy of buying at 4 stores...I did pick up a bottle of ER 17 year though. A buddy of mine called me from a liquor store in MN and they had them there for $53 each...sure beats Binny's price of $67. They also had PVW 20 year for $88...I passed though as I already have bottle in the bunker...will probably pick up another soon.

    I went one state over to West Virginia to go dusty hunting today and kind of got skunked. I ended up with a 93 95 and 96 EWSB the 96 was bottled in December so I am guessing it is beam juice. and a old label OF 86.
    all the stores I went in to the 96s were from barrel #576. Kind of odd the older ones I found were bured in between all the 96s.

    Most retailers don't rotate their spirits. So when you go hunting for a specific date it pays to dig.

    Picked up some bottles of Rebel Yell from 1989-90. It was very smooth but not much taste to offer at first but it built up after a few pours and tastes great from an 80 proofer...and I'm pretty sure it's SW...as Duffman says.."OH YEAH!!"

    I was digging and getting some looks as i stacked them out on the floor around me.
