    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? - Fall 2012

    He's thinking long-term legacy here... Inheritance man inheritance! :-)

    Seriously though, that is quite a cache you got there. They look impressive all lined up like soldiers.

    That very thought has crossed my mind about myself. It seems that my current consumption rate is decreasing while my desire to purchase good bourbon has not.

    I'm pretty damn close but when exceptional bourbon that was hand selected is available at prices cheaper than what I would pay for them on shelf you have to buy and buy in bulk. These bottles represented our 28-34th barrel selections in the past 3 years so one would think that the desire to keep selecting/buying would slow down but for some reason it hasn't. We've already got pending 2 10yr Willett's, a 9yr Willett, 2 OWA's, a ETL, and 2 FR's lined up for the sampler in April...I've noticed that when my buddies come over 95% of the time the reach for our private selection bottles and of that about 60% of the time it's the Four Roses selections.

    Weller 12, empty space on my back-up shelf. Why not fill it!

    Not today, but throughout this past week, I grabbed a Lot B, 2 x 4R SmB LE 2012, ER10 Cork 'n Bottle selection, 2 x Weller 12 and a FR SB LE 2010 100th Anniversary. A couple to give as gifts. The rest for my own enjoyment.

    Anyway, has anyone ever tried the FR 100th? What should I expect?

    Merry Christmas to my beautiful bourbon loving girlfriend! I managed to secure the rye today to complete the gift just in time.

    That's an impressive line up Curtis, hope it stimulates her heart as well as her palate.

    Expect to taste a little drop of heaven.

    There's always some luck of the draw on 1B expressions. This is a 17yo OBSV, the oldest barrels FR has released along with the recent series of gift shop bottles. The gift shop bottles I've had have been among the best bourbon I've ever tasted, and the 100th Ann I drank through was also very special stuff.
