    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2010

    Robert I've had a decent amount of Stagg in the past, 10 bottles or so, but have decided I'm just not a fan of high octane whisky.

    Got it. I only mention it because I have had several different years and I really like the way the 2010 turned out.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Fall 2010

    Pretty good haul considering I live in a control state. Got a little lucky when a store owner let it slip he had some Stagg and I immediately found another store near by that had just gotten some. (It's a real pain trying to get someone to look for these over the phone. "Oh yah, we have W.L. Weller" "How much is it?" "$20" ). Only bottle of WLW I could find was on hold for a restaurant, maybe. I might get it if it turns out all they wanted was some other BTAC. Might have more luck on Wednesday which is the next delivery day for stores around here.

    Definitely put over 200 miles on my car driving around the state to pick up a bottle of Pappy here and there. I found one store with a slew of 15 year and I have a small regret not buying them out, but I'm sure someone else will enjoy them more than my bunker will.

    I'm debating keeping the ER17 and Thomas Handy. I bought them because they're BTAC but I'm not sure if I remember liking them or not. I might open one of each and if I dislike them, return the others.

    I'm going to go be poor for a while now.

    No problem, that was the last place I went and I was tapped at that point!

    Red Label Cascade from Dickel. Don't bother, I know what I'm doing.

    Picked up 2 bottles of ORVW 10/107 this weekend. I had never seen it until about a week ago, found a store that had a few at $30, and picked one up. I went back for 2 more once I had a taste of it. Great stuff!

    I picked up a 2008 FR Mariage in the Chicagoland area (Schaumburg) on Saturday and a VWFRR today, closer to home. What amazes me is the difference in sales tax in Illinois. It was 11.5% for the Mariage versus 7.25% for the VW. Doesn't bode well for Binny's (unless they open a store closer to me)

    Good grab. It's nice to see that not every retailer is trying to rape the consumer. That's still a 50% markup though.
