    Binny's had a 5/15/92 barrel that was by far the best $50 bourbon I've ever bought. TPS had a barrel from the same date that wasn't as good, but was still a standout. Open it up dog!

    On vacation in Pensacola, picked up 2 PVW 15 and a PVW 20, all at MSRP. I was so distracted that I forgot to shop for tequila.

    Well, there's one you don't see every day. Hey Doug, what's the story on that?
    FWIW, I did just reload my empty MM46 yesterday. But, just plain red wax...

    The blue and white Makes 46 was a limited release (9000 bottles, I think) in Kentucky. It doesn't specifically say UK but I would assume the 2012 release in Blue and White was strongly tied to the Wildcats Nat'l championship. I picked up one as well. Mine was actually cheaper than the normal M46. I haven't cracked it open though, sitting right next to my Calipari Makers bottle from 2010. I assume I will keep these around for a while as my wife and father in-law are huge UK fans.

    I'm not sure why Maker's Mark hasn't offered an official commemorative bottle for the 2012 championship (as was done in '96), but this suffices. Kudos to my mother for running around Lexington the day they were released to pick up one for me.

    Maker's Mark did a 2012 commemorative bottle for Tim Couch. I'm still scratching my head about that one.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? - Spring 2012

    Yesterday the order came in for the EC 12yr barrel that I helped the store pick out some time ago. I've been pretty excited to see the final version come in. I know it's not the most exciting bourbon out there, but the memory of the experience is certainly special to me.

    Been awhile since I've had a regular EC 12, but I'd like to say that we did pretty good. Like most, i think some improvement will come with a bit of rest and air now that it's been opened, but initial pours were very promising.

    It will be something that a grab a couple of bottles to stash away.

    True, you can dip your own bottle and make your own "slam dunk" but unless it's changed, I think you can only do this with the 375ml bottles they offer for the dip your own experience, so the 750ml in the wild is only the 1 out of 824 you noted.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.

    Is it the same ratio for the liter bottles? I found one of those recently.

    Yeah that is exactly why I've stayed out of collecting MM for quite some time. But, since I have every other UK dedicated bottle, if one of you KY members see a championship bottle at MSRP please pick it up for an alumni and PM me
