    Need help QUICK!

    My dad is on vacation, and I gave him a list of items to keep a look out for that I cannot buy locally.

    He just sent picture from a store and they have Weller Antique 107, and Weller Special Reserve. I know there is big love for the 107, and I have the 12 year at home. I was going to have him pick up a 107, but didn't know if the SR is better.

    Quick thoughts are appreciated! Thanks.

    My order of preference of the current stuff out there is 107 > 12 Year > Special Reserve. The latter is nothing I'd make room for in a suitcase. Just my opinion, of course.

    Special Reserve is so called because they had to think up a name for the lower proof stuff. My preferences are the 10/107, the 7/107, the 107, then all the rest.

    This is like a vacation for you too! I sure hope he doesn't decide to make the good time a better time with certain brown spirits! Couldn't blame him if he did
    But that is really awesome he is doing some hunting for you!

    I knew I liked Squire for some reason.

    The good news is that he was leaving today for S. America for a fly fishing trip, so I think the bourbon is safe. The problems is I have to wait that much longer to get it my hands!
