    Both places gave me the old "Our guy who handles ordering will get back to you." But both had product from the spring allocation, so I'm hopin'!

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? - Fall 2011

    Not today, but his past weekend.

    Made the Binny's South Loop run as the misses and I went into the city to see my sister for a surprise pop-in and take out for some fun this past Sunday.

    Having never been there before, I have to say, it's a very nice store.Could have easily spent more time there but we were on a limit.

    My main focus were items that I couldn't normally get ahead me. So I think i ended up with a pretty nice assortment.

    x2-Angels Envy
    x1-Weller 12yr
    x1-ET Lee-Binny's pick
    x1-Mellow Corn
    x1-High West Rendevous Rye
    x1-Forty Creek Double Barrel
    x1-Herbsaint 100pf-Definately a touch nicer than the 90pf
    x1-Bitter Truth-Jerry Thomas's
    x1-Luxardo Cherries.

    It was a ball. Plus some wine for the misses.

    My surprise score of the trip was a bottle of Weller SR, white paper label, that I found in a local store by my folks. It was the only one they had. Bummer......

    And one for the dusty catalog. When we got into the folks saturday night, I was planning on having a beer before bed, as my dad usually has a couple in the fridge. Sadly, no beer. So, I decided to raid the basement. My folks have never been big spirit drinkers, but they do have a couple of bottle holed away that haven't seen the light of day in decades.

    So up comes a bottle of Seagram's VO 6yr Canadian Whiskey. Circa 1984 according to the tax stamp on the neck. I figured this was the safer one to take, I'd probably catch a bit more hell if it was the Crown or Chivas from roughly the same time period.

    Light straw colored in the glass. Weak nose, very mellow and light in the mouth. Medium finish. Not what i usually go for, but it was very pleasant after a long day of visiting the BIL and a couple hours on the road after that.

    This also got brought home. Not the fanciest pour, but one full of memories.....

    I think I can still find a 2007 WLW unless Bob took it. The 2008 and 2009's were extremely scarce and was only able to find one of each.
    Last thing I picked up a few days ago were an OWA107 in the old bottle and an ORVW10/107.

    I picked up a 2011 PHC and 2011 OFBB yesterday. I also ran across three bottles of Hirsch 16 Year Old. If you're willing to pay the $195 a bottle the guy wants send me a PM and I'll let you know where to look.

    Have you tried either of these yet? I always look forward to the Birthday Bourbons and I have been really curious to hear about the PHC.

    Not yet. I've been fighting a head cold all week. Being sick is about the only time I'm not in the mood for whiskey.

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? - Fall 2011

    Went to party source this morning with hopes of maybe getting a bottle of the BTAC. Got there at 8:10 and they were already sold out. Apparently that little blurb they said about a 2 bottle max and trying to get this stuff to "as many bourbon fans as possible" was pure b.s., as I saw several people wandering around the store with cases of the stuff (not that I got there in time to get any anyway, but still...). All I came away with was a bottle of weller 12.
