    I figure a little infusion of shopping money for vacation is worth something!

    Haven't seen any up here in northern Illinois in a while. Good Luck. Let us know if you find any.

    I will attempt to get this one right. I got it from someone who used to be on this site so wasn't involved in any of it firsthand. Here goes:

    Charles Miller of the Louisville zoo purchased the barrel from BT. He was involved with numerous charities involving animals and used these bottles as fundraisers to support the groups he was involved with. It was distilled on the 2nd to last day of operations 6/29/92 and was bottled at 14 years in 2006 at 90pf.

    It's been hard to find in Chicago lately. Almost all the Binny's locations are out, and a couple employees told me they don't expect to get it in again for a while.

    Gentleman I will do my best. But now I'm bummed about the slim prospects. Last one I pulled was from the Naperville Binny's, I think Clingman was going to be there also this week?? Maybe we can get advanced scouting report or two??

    If I do run across any, i may be lucky to get it back anyway, the misses is starting to make "the face" when she takes a gander at the bunker. I think we all know what that face is.

    Weller 12? The Binny's by me always has it in stock. Just bought one last weekend. I know we're not supposed to post locations for BTAC and Pappy, but does that apply here too? Seems kind of silly, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

    Offsite is the way to go here. I keep my wine in a temperature controlled locker and the bourbon boxed, stacked and stashed away at work, all in an effort to keep the house stocked juuuuuust right.

    Just emptied the last of my 200ml of Old Forester BIB DSP-414. I really need to go make an offer on the cache I found. I need to empty my cache of DSP-414 OF 86 too.

    Out tonight went a bottle of Jim Beam White I purchased just for comparison tasting purposes. This opens a sloy for something new as it will *not* be restocked in my cabinet.

    It's fine, but I prefer the standard issue.

    Yes he has some special bottles, Mr. Miller that is...very nice person too. Still a member but doesn't post much.
