    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? - Winter 2011/2012

    Just found a bottle of PHC cognac finished.
    I have the Cask Strength and the Wheat PHC already.
    I tried all 3 tonight.
    IMHO. The Wheat is #1 followed by the cask and closely by the Cognac.
    I guess I like the higher proofs, since the Cognac is at 100.

    Three of these via the magic of ebay:



    I'm thinking that they are probably more valuable as a rarity/trade bait than as an excellent drinker (although I'd love to hear from anyone who tried one) so they will probably hit the bunker for long-term storage.

    If it still has the 8 year age statement on the label I would give it a buy recommend at $15. Some folks diss the '92 through '99, no longer DSP-16, now Bernheim-DSP 1 produced wheaters. There was the new distillery technology and limitations put forth by United Distillers but, Ed Foote, was still the master distiller. My own tasting experience has been good with the Old Fitz BIB's, 1849 and now some Willett's from that production. And in comparison to the wheaters now being produced by HH there, other than the superb PHC, Ed Foote did a damn good job in spite of what he had to deal with.

    I agree, Thad. I've found one with the 8 year age statement and find it to be very good. I assumed that in 2006 this bottle had become NAS...maybe I'm wrong though.

    Picked up the last handle of ER101 in the area. Was on the fence about it, but finally caved in.

    In addition to picking up my first Bulleit Rye and another Dickel 12, I bought my first OWA based on all the love it's been getting around here lately. I just had a small sip of the OWA last night, but WOW! Thank you for the recommendation. I can't wait to tear into it tonight.

    I recently saw someone talk about how much better the recent batch is compared to years past. Anyone else agree?

    Picked up a couple bottles of Rittenhouse Rye BIB. Makes the best Manhattans I've ever had. It is on my must buy list if found under $20. It was $17.30 in the northern WV panhandle
