    Yes, grossly overpriced at $74.95, and I really don't even care for regular Elijah Craig. But I don 't think this available in the general marketplace. I do plan to drink it as I am not a collector and subscribe to the theory that bourbon is made tone consumed.

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

    I picked up a WT Tradition in a schmancy wooden box.

    Also: Tempus Fugit Creme de Menthe, Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal, and some Bittercube Blackstrap bitters.

    I will be combining them all into the worst cocktail ever.

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

    Today I finally got PHC 6th Edition! So to my Dallas/FT folks...it's gotta be at your store somewhere. I had to inquire about it as it wasn't on the shelf. I left two others behind.
    I also got a 350ml of OWA with the 7yr AS.
    A bottle of Willett Family Estate 6yr (119 proof)
    A bottle of Rittenhouse Rye BIB for the bunker.
    And...a bottle of Henry McKenna 10yr Single Barrel BIB for the helluvit. Not a bad pour actually.

    QQ: Does anyone know where Willett is sourcing their Family Estate stuff the 6 and 7 year? I tasted the 7 year yesterday and I cracked open my new 6 year today and BOTH whiskeys numb the inside of my mouth. GTS and WLW do not do this...but these Willetts do O_O

    No one will get this but the Bourbon Heritage Center in Bardstown.

    No one knows the provenance of any specific Willett barrel, except maybe the person who selected the barrel. It could be from any of the Kentucky distilleries... if you have bottles from two different barrels, they could easily be from two different distillers.

    how old is this bottle? And any tasting notes? I almost picked up one of these at the BHC recently but went for the new PHC instead. Just curious as I've heard great things about these bottlings.

    Is the Willett rye or bourbon?
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
