    And added another OWA to the stash. Trying to pick up a few cases of this stuff while it still has an age statement. I think we're in "Number 8" territory.

    The recent Van Winkle bottlings have appeared on the local shelves. Quantities are said to be very limited. So I picked up PVW15 and Lot B... a pair of each for the bunker.

    Maybe by caved, he means bunkered.

    More than enough to keep my nose and palate happy through fall and winter!!!

    Cracked the FR and its one of the best ryes Ive had in a while. Fruity, spicy, minty, and the nose lasts long after the glass is dry....

    Cheers

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    After having tasted the NAS OWA the closest Woodmans got in I grabbed another for the bunker (my first taste of OWA, and it reminded me of the Everett's single barrel of SR but with more caramel and higher proof, but has some of those apple notes I really love, so I wanted more of that batch they got. There's half a dozen left yet.) There's some of the older OWA at the other Woodmans well on the other side of town, I might swing by there this week since I'll be doing some work at our other warehouse on that end of town. They have the Weller SR in the new bottle there too I think, it'll be interesting to see if the age statement is gone from that also.

    I haven't gone whiskey hunting in well over a year -- and, frankly, I didn't do so today, though I ran across something to buy anyway.

    I stopped to visit a couple of liquor stores I hadn't been into for several years during a wandering, first-day-of-fall-break drive, not looking for anything in particular nor expecting to find anything in particular.
    At one store, where I'd found a handful of gems previously, I finally grabbed off a Glen Ord 12yo single malt Scotch which I'd known had been there during previous visits. However, he was down to a single one with holiday packaging -- in this case, an additional 375ml bottle for no additional cost (the labeling's copyright was 1997). By the way, Glen Ord hasn't been imported into the U.S. for several years.

    Anyway, I've mentioned this bottling previously to dougdog, and would be glad for his -- or anyone else's -- thoughts on its desirability.
    I sometimes think to look through Woodford Reserve stocks -- which otherwise don't really interest me -- in order to discover any remaining Lincoln Henderson-'signed' bottles. The only one in this store was an early Lot 27 liter, which I'd estimate was bottled c. 1999-2001 -- well before any pot-stilled whiskey made it into the batching. In other words, this is the WR that people remember when they claim today how good it is.

    That's quite a haul - that's a top shelf to be proud of - a really sweet collection of great juice.


    Yesterday I got 4 200 ml Old Taylor BiB bottles - from the early 80's.
