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

    3 x Lot B
    1 x WLW
    1 x ER 17
    1 x Saz 18

    I found them at my local liquor store on the clearance rack. Not sure how it got there. They never have the stuff on the shelf. I was there to pick up some Bulleit, and it was sitting next to the register. I don't know how to tell what year the Lot B is, but the ER 17 and Saz 18 is this year. The WLW is 134.5 proof so I'm guessing it is 2009.

    I put the Bulleit back.

    Bought a Hancock Reserve on the recommendation of one of the store managers. He knew enough to tell me it was a wheater, so I'll roll the dice for $30.

    Hancock's is a good bourbon, but it's not a wheater. It's from BT's #2 mash bill (higher rye - also Ancient Age, Virginia Gentleman, Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms). $30 is a good price, though.

    nice find. My post would be something like this:

    Went looking for
    3 x Lot B
    1 x WLW
    1 x ER 17
    1 x Saz 18

    Ended up with Bulleit! I have to ask just because you said it was on clearance shelf, what was ballpark price for each.

    It was not a smoking deal by any stretch. But I avoided a gross BTAC and VW gouge. Lot B was $56 WLW was $70 ER 17m was $50 Saz 18 was $70

    My last bottle of WLW was $100, so I'm pleased with the find. Wish this stuff was priced like it was 3 years ago, but that's life.

    Edit: I think it was on the clearance shelf because these folks didn't know what to do with it.

    That's hysterical! That's like a tone poem reflecting the collective experience of 99% of bourbon lovers.

    WLW is still going for $70 at one store in the neighborhood, but every other store has it and the others for $120 or more. These are horrible people, these DC retailers. They're all internet-savvy, like the entire overeducated NW DC population, and their prices are up-to-the-minute Ebay level. Except my local store, God bless those guys.

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

    Went to NY this weekend, picked up two phone orders, and stopped by another liquor store before we left.

    VWFRR x 2
    ORVW 10 107

    Parker's Heritage Cognac finished - Had this at a bar recently and loved it.

    Weller 12 x 3 - This is becoming my house bourbon for guests

    Breukelen Whiskey - Made in NY, very young, no idea what to expect.

    Old Williamsburg 101

    Old Charter 101 - Heard its crap but I've never seen it in MA.
