I want something easily repeatable, thus standard OWA + Weller 12. TPS JPS 18 is very good, but I can see taking a WLW and Ritt instead.

    Hah hah, I agree - a handle of OWA and Weller 12 each is like $70 total. That's $70 for 3 LITERS of what I imagine is a decent substitute for the more glamorous Van Winkles. I'd do that 11 times out of 10 if the 12 year were available up here.

    Re: JPS18, I don't know how it is with you, but no matter what I do get, I can think only of the bottles I DIDN'T get...

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

    This is what I bought or picked up during my yearly holiday trip to see my family in Virginia. All of this was purchased in Tennessee. Some I bought over the phone the day it arrived at the stores and I just picked it up while I was there.

    2 2011 WLW
    2 PVW 20
    2 PVW 15
    3 VWFRR
    4 ORVW 107, 3 from previous allocations(very very happy I found these), 1 from this fall, ehhhhhhh. I left that in good hands to finish next year. Maybe it will change since half is gone
    1 OWA drank while visiting
    1 Bernheim for a present

    Would you believe my wife used the last of my non-bunkered bourbon last week, marinating a roast for Christmas dinner? She emptied a bottle of 10-yr old Henry McKenna Bib to do it.

    I can't get stuff like that in Alabama, but today I bought a liter of Wild Turkey 101 and a 750 of Old Grand Dad 86. I hope she will cook with the OGD when she feels a need.

    Is Christmas really too late? My package FINALLY came in...had an issue as no shipper would ship this from a state that was a couple away. Finally had a friend pick up and drive it to me on his way through. Cannot believe it, ive got a nice bunker but I am done till fall allocation.

    You were super lucky to score those PVW15 bottles from '08 and '09. With the addition of the fact that after next year the odds of the 20 being SW juice are questionable, you did well. That is a lot of $ to drop at once, but one of those whiskeys is gone and the other soon will be....seems you really had no choice.
