    You're still early.

    The 21st (today) is the last full day of Summer and the 23rd is the first full day of Autumn.

    The equinox is at 21:18 UTC on the 22nd, so tomorrow is more than 1/2 summer as well.

    Good point Scott, so how about we lock it down until then for the final 24 hour countdown?! .... The Final Countdown!!

    Stitzel Weller bourbon.

    There was another Cabin Still but it got opened for immediate consumption. I was thinking about getting a mini barrel for these three, in hopes of adding some oak/complexity to the straightforward buttery almond flavor. It also needs some extra proof, so I may try vatting with something 100+ proof and see how that works out.

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    I guess I didn't buy enough bourbon at the KBF. Had to run to Milwaukee tonight after work. Stopped at a couple of places on the way home. Found a couple of steals at one place that I just couldn't pass up. I bought 2 bottles of WTRR 10/90 for $17.99 each, and a bottle of ER 10/90 for $20.99. There were a couple of WTKS pewter tops that I passed on at $46.99 each. Good selection at this place, but some of their prices were weird. I got good deals on the WTRR and ER, but they had a couple of things that were a bit high. WTRB for $39.99 was one. Wish I could have found the WTRB for $17.99 too. I may have vatted an entire bottle of the WTRB and WTRR together. Joe

    Rare breed is almost impossible to find less than 39.99 here. I'm jealous of your other finds, though...
