    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    Going SW tonight. Pappy 20 to start.....this one refreshes my memory of why I like the 15 better. Just a little too much wood for me. Then the 2005 KBS BOTY Weller 12. Now this is more like it. Somewhat delicate, but I don't mind having to study my whiskey to see what's in there. The trademark cottton candy is there. Very nice. Not my favorite of the four barrels we bought that year, but solid SW at 13 1/2 years old.

    That's a great line, Randy, and a good lesson to some of the newer and less-experienced members here: a little patience and some conscious thought allows us to find premium bourbon in other than G.T. Stagg bottles. Many of the 'wowser', historic S-Ws I've found and sampled required some pondering and comparisons to taste memories.
    I'm down to a singleton each of the '05 BOTY and Barrel 'C' from those four selections (well, three selections, and one accident!) -- since I've enjoyed several of each already, I'm inclined to let them be my sole shelf 'queens' into my old age or, at least, somewhat older age (next week?).

    My boss, (not THE BOSS, he runs this site, ya know) made me go to our plant in South Carolina, for a trial run tomorrow. Well, I bitched, but he is the boss.(Again, not THE BOSS ). Thought I'd make the 3 hour drive tonight, so I could get to the plant early tomorrow. While stopping to get gas, I spied a liquor store across the street. I just HAD to go in... Pulled out 2 Old Rip Van Winkle 15's, and 2 Lawrenceburg Lot B's. I can't wait for my next assignment!

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    I got a parcel today from mr Kruger with 2 bottles. One Overholt bottled 1981 distilled at Michters and one WT 101 bottled 1984. I got them at low bids. My tactic to bid a lot of low bids on good but not “must have” bottles pay of quit a bit I must say.
