    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2009

    I had to drive clear down to Houston to get it, but I picked up an Old Forester BIB 1.75 from 1983 that I left in Korea town a year ago. I got lucky and it was still there. This stuff is so good and much older than the 4 years stated.

    A liter bottle of Old Fitzgerald BIB 1993 was waiting on my doorstep when I got home from lunch today.

    If that's the one I think it is (from USA Liquor #2), I've told a few SB members about it, and I'm glad that someone finally picked it up. There was also a tax-stripped handle of Old Charter next to it on the shelf.

    Don,

    That's an awesome find. I have some of that older OFBIB and think it's really terrific stuff.

    Yes sir, that's the one. I bought one a year ago and the one I left behind has been in the back of my mind since. I live near Dallas and work in Houston occasionally and my motel was less than a mile from there, so I can sleep better at night now knowing it's safe at home.

    And the tax strip Old Charter was tempting, but I could go get 10 cases of the same bottles from the 70's in Dallas. It's everywhere up there.

    I wanted to get an Old Grand-Dad 114 today but the store was out.
    So I got an OGD BIB and an Old Forester Signature.

    Same here Oscar, the girls brought me a bottle of Forester Signature during lunch and I made a short walk a few minutes ago to get a bottle of Grand Dad BIB.
