    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Winter 09/10

    Not bourbon, but I bought a High West Rendezvous Rye.

    Picked up a bottle of Old Weller Antique in a purple bag. It has a date stamp of 04 on the bottom, and is very tasty. No stores in my area carry current bottlings of OWA -- are they still this good (loss of age statement aside)?

    Not even close. Anything from 07 and earlier is bland and some of the 06 I've had has the older profile, some had the newer. The newer stuff is still decent.

    I got two handles of Tom Moore BIB along with a 1L bottle of WT8 export this past week. Its good to know people that are willing to get you bottles you can't get without traveling.

    BBQ,

    Thanks for the information. There were three of these OWA bottles at the store, and I bought them all over the course of a month. At the risk of sounding greedy, I'm starting to regret that I kept only one for myself, and gave the other two to friends who are just getting interested in bourbon. Oh well, they're good people and one seems to love the OWA (the other re-gifted the bottle right in front of me, which made me twitch).

    I meant to say that the 07 and newer is flat while the 06 and older is quite good. I had some 03 last night. Darned good stuff.

    Had a friend going out of town and had him pick me up:

    1 ETL
    3 OGD 114

    Now I can open up that last 114 in the bunker tonight.

    Robert, will be interested in your comments on the current ETL and OG 114 too.

    Grabbed a couple more Binny's Weller 12's for the bunker...that gives me 17 of these which should be enough stock for a couple years!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!
