    GTS and Saz 18 (both 2912) - first time to find GTS in the wild. Looking forward to this one.

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

    I live in a control state (Oregon), and the limited release stuff can be really hard to get here. However, I got sent to Madison, WI last week for work -- just in time for the 2012 BTAC release! I ended up with 2 WLW, 1 Saz 18, and 1 FRSmB LE 2012. I would have loved to have picked up a Stagg, and I saw several, but at 142 proof it's considered hazardous material by the FAA, so I could not have legally brought on the plane (even in a checked bag.) I was also tempted by a bottle of Smooth Ambler 19 year, but I figured I had probably indulged as much as my wife would forebear. All the bottles made it back fine, wrapped up in my clothes. Really happy with the haul, should tide me over for a long time. Can't wait to try 'em!

    Sorry, Madisonites, to have absconded with that rare bottle of Saz 18.

    Called ahead to a store while I was on a road trip, asked for GTS. Lady says she has one on stock, will hold it for me for a few hours.

    I get there, check the shelf and a GTS 12 is sitting on the shelf. Think nothing of it (other than the lady didn't keep her word), and go to check out. Behind check out is another GTS with my name on it. I tell the cashier I'll take both, and then I read the proof on the 2nd - 143! Great day when an unexpected GTS 10 finds its way into your bunker.

    Picked up a PHC 6th and an American Prairie Reserve, too.

    Not exactly a bourbon, but I went to meet up with some SB members in Iowa City this weekend and I ended up with a new vehicle:

    What a perfect car bed/trunk to transport bourbon with.

    I think we need to work with Travis on what you go shopping for on these Bourbon get aways
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Sometimes the whiskey Gods provide us good fortune when least expected. Nice finds.
