    Great find. How many does that make?

    As for myself, I did a little hunting through MI as I made my way home. Picked up a Baby Saz, THH 2011, OFBB 2011, and WTAS. Left some of each (as well as a few others) behind also.

    I wanted to see what they had in Farragut and nothing was on sale so that was not good. But I did get a half gallon of 6YO 90Proof Very Old Bartons. I think they are stopping the 6YO so was glad to get it. The Bottled in Bond was not a savings so I got the 90.

    Three so far, need to find more but very scarce in Michigan. Looking to start buying online, I have one test order on the way.

    I must not be venturing far enough east. I found one bottle last winter (I think it was last winter at least) and that's been it. I've yet to open it as I was hoping to get a second bottle first.

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

    Here's my haul from yesterday. Or, I should say, my wife's haul. I knew from asking around that the BTAC and the Van Winkle was due to arrive in the Seattle area sometime toward the last half of this month. I didn't really have any strategy in mind, I just planned to hit a couple of stores and see what I could find when word got out that the deliveries had been made. Looked like a slow couple of weeks, so no problem grabbing my coat and leaving on short notice.

    Then, on Wednesday, I saw Chris24's post. It was go time. Looked at my calendar, and hell, it was wall to wall meetings prepping for CES in January. Out of luck I guess. My wife had a short day planned at work and felt badly for me I suppose. She volunteered to go shopping for me. I thought that was a nice gesture, but I thought it was pretty futile as she was only likely to hit places near her work, and much later in the day. She wanted to go though, and who am I to turn down help?

    She called early in the afternoon to tell me she was stopping at the liquor store closest to her office as there was an open parking space in front of the door. I told her that's not how those things worked, but I was wrong. Apparently the truck had just shown up and she ended up at the front of a quickly growing line. I believe that's where she got the Handy and an ORVW 12 (not pictured). Most importantly, she got a delivery schedule from the manager and the phone number of a guy in line that was going to hit some of the stores that weren't on her itinerary. Critically, the hook was set and she was locked in on A Mission.

    She spent the rest of the afternoon on the phone, networking with other shoppers, harassing store managers, and horse trading out of the trunk of her car. I just had no idea.

    The only downside to the whole thing is that I didn't get a Family Reserve Rye, the bottle that had been #1 on my list. I used to regularly get that at the U Village store near my house. I had no idea it was hard to find. I assumed they had been restocking, but I think I had just been buying repeatedly from the same shipment of bottles that somehow had gotten stashed on the bottom shelf of the Canadian section.

    So if anybody in the Seattle area has any interest, I'm looking to trade the ER 17 and/or maybe a Pappy 20 for a Family Reserve Rye. Anyone interested?
