    I think you and Fishnbowljoe should have just bought a barrel!

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

    Went out to town yesterday and found a bottle of Buffalo Trace in a very small whiskey store in the centre of Munich. They had quite a nice selection actually (Tara for those of you that know the place maybe).

    My bourbon experience is still limited at this stage by having had only Jim Beam white, then a double shot of Makers at a pub, and then the recent addition of FR yellow label.

    Not sure what the price difference is in the US, but my goodness...for me at least the Buffalo Trace is worth every single cent extra (costs double FR yellow).
    While I do like the yellow label a lot (head and shoulders above Jim Beam white, Jack Daniels and to some extent also Makers Mark in the flavour department though less smooth) I think the bottle of BT has just so muhc more to offer.

    Quick notes: Excellent complexity with layers and layers of different flavours developing. I was drinking it straight and it was the smoothest bourbon and also one of the smoothest whisky/whiskeys I ever had. The finish was looooong and very satisfying with its own development if you did not pick up the glass too soon again. Mouthfeel was again also excellent, oily and coating the inside of our mouth.

    I did pick up some mint there, some fruit, caramel, flowers. spices, hint of pepper.....great. Only had a few shots as I also bought a bottle of RedBreast 12 year that I tried as well earlier. Awesome stuff....the best Irish whiskey I ever had....and from reviews it seems to be the case. Super smooth.

    Cant wait for next month since I am burning to try out WT101 in either the bourbon or Rye form....cannot decide yet. but I have the buffalo to keep me company until then

    Was out and about today. Picked up a bottle of Weller 12 (not Binny's) to replace the one I gave to a friend as a wedding present. Joe

    On Sunday, I saw three bottles of AH Hirsch 16 at BevMo and picked up all three bottles at $289!! Grabbed them home and put them in one of the shelf. Then I started thinking that I don't really have any ties to this bottle and never tried them so that's crazy to spend so much. I rather get 9 bottles of PVW20 that I really like. So Monday, I went and return all of them.

    Then I went to another place and purchase these set for half what I had spent.

    1- AH Hirsh 16 at $199. (Just getting one to try because of the hype and rarity)
    1 - PVW 15 to bunker
    1 - PVW 20 to bunker
    1 - Handy to try

    I didn't purchase it, but I was gifted a 1990 Beam Corvette decanter by a co-worker. It is full, and the tax stamp is intact. Can't wait to try it. Might have to open it later tonight. Joe

    My local store is now stocking Elmer T Lee. First that I've ever seen it in Georgia. I didn't need it, as I stock up when I go to Tennessee, but I bought one anyway as a show of Support.

    I was in one of those neighborhoods again on the way home today and stopped in and grabbed another 3 Liters of Old Taylor from 1983. The old guy behind the counter vanished for a bit and came back with all the dust knocked off them.

    Great tasting notes! The BT sounds great but the price puzzles me. I am beginning to wonder if there is an international version that is different from the U.S. version.

    Here in my state Four Roses (Yellow) is $18.97. Buffalo Trace is $23.96.
