    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    From the bottom shelf, a Japanese export bottle of Stone Castle Single Barrel, ID #6 Lot 1, ABV 53%, filled by MW (Michael Withrow?). As learned from John Lipman's writings, this was Cecil Withrow's first and only bottling of juice around the time he was also restoring the Old Taylor Distillery in 1999. He purchased the barrels (sure tastes like Heaven Hill Juice) and then as the label states "Hand filled, proofed and bottled by Stone Castle Distilling, Milville, Kentucky...DSP 53". This is nice whiskey somewhat similar to current Wathen's.

    Unfortunately, Cecil Withrow passed away in December 2000 and I presume before, any actual distilling by Stone Castle Distilling or at DSP 53, took place.

    What did I not buy? PVW 20 for $81. After seeing you guys say that $89.99 is a deal, I will buy it tomorrow.

    What I did buy, some Dant BIB from I think 1991, DSP KY 31 distilled and bottled. Maybe it's the plastic bottle, but this one tastes like something that tastes like bourbon.

    I might hit up the ghetto stores tomorrow and see if I can score something.

    Cool Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    I was in South Carolina, Wednesday, and I bought a bottle of Old Grand Dad BiB ($19) which, of course, is not available in Alabama. I agree with everyone, it has much richer and deeper flavor than the 86-proof bottling which I can get at home. I disagree, however, with those who say it is better than the 114-proof OGD.

    I do wish I could get the 100-proof version here, regularly. It could possibly supplant, or at least stand along with, Wild Turkey 101 as my favorite everyday pour.

    I purchased a bottle of WT101 today for $26, which is about as cheap as I can get it.

    It was a toss up between he WT 101, baby Saz, ER 10 and Woodford Reserve.

    What I passed up today was Joshua Brook, and Olde Bourbon by JW Dant. It was bargain priced and I found out why when I read the back label, "This whiskey is thirty-six months old." Thats why!

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2009

    I didn't purchase it but when I got into my car, (that would be the Obama-Mobile to any Newbies reading this) to go home after work today there was a gift pack of Wild Turkey 101 with the flask and flask bag, sitting on the driver's seat.
    So to who ever left it there, I got ice and glasses, let's do it!
