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

    I found a bottle of Alchemist Heaven Hill. I guess its a barrel from Heaven Hill that was bottled in Scotland. I'm excited to try this one, but I'll have to wait til after Christmas because I'm gifting it.

    You can see the bottle here.

    Interesting. I've never had a bottle of bourbon that was better, or worse for that matter, with the second half.

    I, on the other hand, go from better to worse, and back again, on nearly an hourly basis.

    Is the better or worse dependent on how fast your ice melts? =)

    Picked up a suweeeet bottle of 4R Marriage 2009. Exciting find for me on the top shelf of store I'm in constantly. If it was a snake ... Really thankful for all the posters on SB who spoke so highly of this one. All you 4R fans get an assist.

Stagg about two weeks ago that is, hand's down, my all time favorite. So much so that I searched high and wide and have been now secured an additional two bottles, with the last one purchased yesterday for $90. Not cheap by any means, but worth it for me.

    Cheers
    Congratulations portugieser & welcome aboard. It was a scant few years ago when I started on this yellow brick premium bourbon road and, trust me, you are in for one hell of a ride. It seems like I find a new "all-time-favorite" every week. There's some delicious stuff in that 70-90 range .. and you'll be happy to know that there is some pretty near as good in the $30 range. You'll also find new friends and plenty of company to share in your new finds. Enjoy!
    Cheers
