    Decided to try Wild Turkey Rare Breed.

    Also picked up Colonel E.H. Taylor sour mash and the awesomeness of the Willet Single barrel reserve 1.75L bottle suckered me in.

    Last week was Single Oak Barrel #4 and some Eagle rare for regular drinking.

    Picked up a bottle of ER10 today. Headed to Binny's in Buffalo Grove tomorrow and will definitely pick something up (maybe a few somethings depending on price) - any suggestions?

    A couple of VG Foxes, and an Old Carter 12. Tasting the OC now, and it is quite good. Big sweetness up front, but the 12 years of influence in the barrel tones it down nicely at the end.

    Bonded Rittenhouse (the regular issue), distilled at B-F per the rear label.

    This bottle is particularly good. The last one was coarse in texture, spirity (but still good). This one is smooth as glass despite 100 points of proof. Perilously drinkable, to borrow a term from the late drinks writer Michael Jackson.

    I now have a bottle of Parker's Heritage cognac barrel finished bourbon, looking forward to tasting this one. A bottle of Bowman barrel strength rye, Lot 01-C-14, barrel no. 2, 134.6 proof, distilled 3-14-01 and bottled 5-12-11. Lastly, a bottle of BT bourbon cream liqueur, never tried it and with the holidays on the way seemed like a good bottle to have around.

    I picked up a bottle of Very Special Old Fitz 12. I've never had it before, looking forward to giving it a try.

    I was just at that store the other day. Other than a few bottles that I've not seen in other Binny's (one I bought, one I felt was over-priced), their selection of whiskey was pretty thin. If you can, drive a few further miles east to Highland Park - much better selection. As for Buff Grove, get one of the FRSB they have in the case. I'd recommend OBSQ if they have it.

    The one I got was Vintage 21 bourbon. From what I've gathered, the 17 was the best of the three, but I've tasted the newer Vintage 17 and did not care for it. As far as I know there's no newer Vintage 21 release. I'm a big fan of the Vintage 23 rye, so we shall see!

    I picked up a bottle of WT Rye today, because my open bottle that gets used for Old Fashioneds is almost empty. Sure, I still have a few in the bunker but what the hell, this stuff is cheap!

    Picked up Old Van Winkle 23 today in the special bottle with the glasses and beautiful wood box. Now to not drink it.

    Best regards, tony
