    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? - Fall 2012

    Henry McKenna SB BIB
    First time having this. It's been collecting dust at my local spot for 2 years. $24 seemed like a reasonable price for a 10 year BIB single barrel.

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

    Went to the grocery store with my wife this afternoon. Of course I had to stop in the liquor section. I was surprised to see Buffalo Trace Cream Liqueur and OWA on the shelves. This is the first time I've seen either of these at this store, so I grabbed a bottle of each. The price was too good to pass up. Only $19.99 each. Every once in a while.

    Lucked my way into a retail price bottle of VWFRR. No lists, no lotteries, no having to know someone. Even a blind chicken etc. etc.

    Was that a typo?

    Crap! I thought I did well once when I picked up 5 in a weekend.

    2010 Thomas H Handy. Found it in the wild, my first "specialty" bottle.

    Side note, after being in this store 20 times I saw on the top a vintage 17 bourbon (green label). I was reading that some had more of a rye content and then some in the alter years were mainly wheaters. Anyone have any info on that?

    Conventional wisdom is plain font on the back label = wheater, and scripted font on the back label = rye based. I have a few of the wheaters bunkered--great bourbon imo.
