After work, I headed to a store near me, and picked up a couple of semi-dusty 1.75's of Old Forester BIB. They've been sitting on the shelf of this store for ages, and I've been contemplating on whether to buy them or not. Yeah, I paid a little bit too much, but what the heck? It's good, I really like it, it's not made anymore, and even though OF Signature is 100 proof, and a pretty decent bourbon, it just ain't the same. After Weller's, my favorites are BIB's.

    Cheers!
    Nice pick up Joe on the OF BIB's and it sounds like you didn't waste any time to crack them open either,atta boy!

    Yes, it was the 12 year Elijah Craig. I really like the standard 12 year, but by my calculations (considering proof alone) this bottle should be about $40. Maybe $50 considering the typical gift shop mark up. But who knows, it might be great and worth the premium. If not it will be a one time purchase.

    Very nice. I would be thrilled to even have one bottle of the 2011 at this point. Congrats!

    Just coming back from FedEx where I received a package from a member who was nice enough to help me track down a 2012 GTS and WLW. Thanks again, can't wait to try these!
