    VWFRR bottle C2329 found a good home. My only VW score for the year.

    At least you made it count, the VWFRR is the one to get.

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

    Nothing so interesting as a VWFRR but I picked up a standard Jefferson Bourbon for $30-ish to put head to head with the $1000 Jeff Ocean! Having a couple of friends with a similar interest in bourbon stop by tomorrow and figured this was the perfect opportunity to open it up and take it for a sail!

    In addition to the bourbon I also picked up a small bottle of standard Crown Royal to compare to an older bottle of Crown Royal I have as well as the selection of dubbel ales mentioned in the beer forum to compare to the GI Pere Jacques ale.

    And on a complete impulse even I can't fully explain I picked up a bottle of Cherry Grand Marnier. I can't resist the odd mixer for playing around with cocktails and it just seemed so festive...

    Should be a fun weekend!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Did you find it around town? If so, good on you, I had figured they were all gone by now.

    Best regards, Tony

    Sounds like a good plan. I recommend doing some blind testing!

    Yes, but it was under the counter. I had been working on this for some time now.

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

    Yesterday was good with a pickup of a Pappy 20 and 15yr, VWFRR, and a 10/107.

    Higher than last years pricing, which was expected, and very appreciated all the same.

    Took a pass on Lot B, maybe if some is hanging around in the next couple of weeks, I might pull the trigger. But with it's higher price compared to Weller 12, and I've had some good luck with the last couple of Weller's, I'm leaning pretty heavily towards the Weller.

    Forty Creek barrel select (very impressed from first taste) and OFBB 2010.

    Lot B X 2
    PVW 15

    First time I've ever tried the lot B, it is great! I've tried the Pappy 15 before, and am just waiting for my in laws to go leave before cracking that open!
