    Where in God's name do you live such that you can just walk into a store in 2011 and grab a 2007 WLW!?!? That's SO unfair!

    LA (hell, the entire west coast) never has amazing finds like this!

    For the record, very well done, Sir.
    I'd beg to differ...some of the best "dusty" finds posted here have come from the west coast and LA specificly...you're not looking hard enough as I know for a fact that there are plenty of "dusty" bottles sitting on the shelves of stores in the LA area.

    I picked up a bottle of 2010 WLW yesterday...it was the last one that I know of in the area and I hadn't gotten one yet. I guess I'll continue my WLW collection for another year.
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    No purchase, but I did stop in at a few places this morning to beg and plead for them to save me some PVW15....

    Me three. Found a lonely 2007 WLW on a shelf not long ago. It was the only BTAC there. I haven't opened it yet, but it sure looks tasty.

    Could probably put this in the "Wee Dram category, but...

    Went the Canadian route and got a 375 of Canadian Club 10 Year, and 750 of Crown Royal Cask 16 750.

    Haven't spent much time with the CC10: the one pour I had was so-so, which is what I expected. It'll be a decent mixer, or one to put on the rocks while I'm cooking, cutting onions and not thinking about nosing fine whiskey.

    The CRCask16 is a great whiskey. A splash of water really took the winey note over to a sweet, creamy, great pour.

    I wish more distilleries were willing to do some aging in cognac or sherry casks like some of the Canadians and many of the scotches do.
