    I did the same thing today. Surprised that of the five stores I hit this week, only one had any -- and a single bottle at that.

    not purchased today, but received today. Christmas in June, the holy grail of rye -- the missing piece in my Van Winkle crown! Going to be hard to not open this at my desk.

    I kept it very simple. The quintessential Summer Sipper, FR Yellow Label. Plus, a 1.75 of same to refill as necessary. Also, picked up the last bottle of the local shops Private Selection of FRSB. And finally, threw in a Jim Beam White 7 yr as another Summer Sipper. I'll tell you what, the Beam 7yr over crushed ice stole the show last night while sitting out back. I was very pleasantly surprised at the full nose, flavor and finish it presented. A nice sweetness, with the signature Beam flavor profile present, but not distracting. Extremely easy drinking at it's low proof, but it had enough heft to hold up to the melting ice on the warm evening.

    SB for Kenwood Liquors. Although I have been told the recipe, I've forgotten.

    I've been a frugal boy since too many purchases at the Bardstown Sampler weekend but a deals a deal so the last week has seen: WT 101 RYE -$19, WT RB-$29, 4R SB 100 proof-$31 and OGD 114-$21.29. Passed on 2010 Handy at $59 and Wiser's 18 as $33 and some dark sides which I may reconsider.
