    While checking around for Pappy and Evan Williams eggnog (no luck yet on either one), I found and bought my first ever bottle of Saz 18 - the last one on the shelf, and grabbed a bottle of 2000 vintage Evan Williams to further spike the Evan Williams eggnog with when it finally hits the shelves.

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

    The other day it was a bottle of Willett 4yr rye and a store bottling of '11 EWSB.

    After picking up the EWSB I asked my guy what his thoughts were on the bottle. I knew he wouldn't bad mouth it, but was interested in his tasting thoughts.

    He said he hadn't had had a sample of it yet, since they just had got it in. Then he said, "Well, we could open that one for a sample?" It was lovely.

    Plus, he came to the register and gave me a discount. Double score! I joked with him that they need to give me a VIP card or something so that they can do the discounting more often at the register. "Hmm, since you are a good customer, we could open you a account to get that all the time."

    What a night!

    Again, this is why you need to work in developing that relationship with your store staff, I know it's been said by many on the board numerous times, and always bears repeating. Good things come from it.

    Picked up via trade 2 liters of 1995 Louisville Weller Special Reserve and a BHC Very Special Old Fitzgerald 12yr. I love my wheaters!

    Visited the Clearview Liquor store and learned that they have their own bottles of Buffalo Trace that they bottled as single barrel. That was a nice surprise so I picked up a couple. I will have to do a little side by side to see if I can notice much of a difference with the regular Buffalo Trace.

    Sweet Mother of Jesus I love eBay!!!

    No BTAC collection for me this year because a retailer F'ed me over after kissing his ass for over a year.
    But eBay to the rescue! The UPS guy just dropped off a 2011 WLarueW.
    Q: Did I over pay?
    A: Heck no, you ever try to drink cash, it don't work.
