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

    I guess, I'm gullible to good marketing.
    Have had my finger on the button for 4r sm btch LE for the last few weeks but haven't pushed it. However, with all this marketing how could I resist? After John listed it on his site #1, over all the BTAC and no mention of Parker's, which I love and have had a lot of, I got a bottle today of Jonn's #1, I'm not being sarcastic, he's right for my palette most of the time. I had a bottle of this in my shopping bag on K&L's site more than once the last week, but closed the link because I have a trip to Europe next month by myself and can go hunting whenever I please and who knows, maybe I'll find something great. Plus I have a few bottles of VW and others waiting in the best storage room I know back east.
    At least now, I'm not going to miss John's highest scored whisk(e)y of the year. From the looks of it, I'm not the only one.
    Is it really better than 2012 WLW and Parker's? I have quite a bias for wheat. I'll tell you what I think, when my friend delivers it tomorrow from 30 miles south of Los Angeles.

    Looks like this is turning into something like a run on the banks...

    I went check out the supply of 4R 2012 SmBLE at one of my favorite stores. They still have several bottles of it (and I picked one up for the bunker, so now I have one open and one unopened).

    Inexplicably...all the 4R Yellow Label, and all the non-LE SmB and the two bottles of 1B LE 2012 that I saw there on the weekend were nowhere to be seen. Only the regular 1B was left, next to the SmBLE.

    Weeeeird...

    Ditto on that. First store I went to was sold out, second store sold their first to me and had 5 left on the shelf.

    It was a good day. I picked up a 4RSmB 2012, then headed over to another liquor store to pick up a VWFRR. I noticed the second store was quite busy, but just assumed it was a wine tasting.

    Well I walk in and there stands Bill Samuels Jr. Signing bottles. I dipped my own bottle in green wax for the Christmas season, and then talked engineering and physics with Bill as he signed my bottle.

    Oh yeah...I also picked up that Van Winkle Rye mentioned earlier, which is a first for me.

    Grabbed maybe the last 4R LE SmB in the East Bay, CA. (I know at least one more place to look if anyone is searching out here, not available online.)

    Also found a WTKS dark wood top bottled 2-16-05 from barrel 3, warehouse E rick 25 from the same place I found an older bottle of EC18 a couple months back. The lady actually got out her feather duster to clean off the bottle for me

    not a bad day at all

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

    While searching for FR SmB 2012, I came across a lonesome single bottle of the 2010 edition that accompanied me home. Although still no 2012 in the ole cupboard, I will console myself with its older brother for the time being.

    Picked up the Stagg twins and their step-brother today. It was worth the 90-minute roundtrip.
