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

    Parkersback, I'll have to post when I crack them open..

    I though I'd try to hold out until my birthday, but as many around here will agree, with something not yet tasted and known to be good, it's really hard to wait!

    I just picked up a bottle of WLW 2012 at $70. I believe it was T Comp who have the glowing review, so I excited to crack it open.

    While I don't actually have it in hand right now, my brother (in Tejas) scored me a bottle of VWFRR today:

    2x EWSB 2000 on the way home from work. Nice surprise. My favorite of the series so far.

    Jim Rutledge was at the Blarney last night in Toledo for a signing and tasting. I had never been to one of these before so I rounded up 4 buddies and we made a day trip out of it. Jim spoke for an hour and we really enjoyed his talk. One of my buddies has been home brewing for 20+ years and he was asking Jim one question after another. When he was done talking, Jim signed bottles of the private bottling (OBSV recipe) that the Blarney had recently acquired. All of my buddies purchased a bottle but I got three of them. I'm going to donate one to a local auction and keep the two for myself.

    Then this morning, my local liquor store called me. I gave him a wish list so he could work with his distributors. He was able to obtain a Stagg for me. I can't wait to crack that one open.

    Here's what I paid for over the past week

    2 x PVW20's
    2 x WLW's
    2 x GTS
    2 x VWFRR

    Went to go pick up my the 2 20 years and 1 rye, store owner had been holding it for me and I paid for it over the phone. When I got there he went to get the box and couldn't find it. He asked an employee where it was and the guy said that the person came in yesterday and got it. I guess the some one came in just said they had some Pappy on hold, and the clerk said oh, you must be the one that paid for it already, went and got the box, gave it to the customer and away he went. Store owner was pissed, asked if he could have a day to go over tapes and try and find the person before he credited my card. Moral of the story don't prepay, I called the credit card company and it shouldn't be a problem getting the funds back, but not looking good at getting any 20 years this year. After this years fiasco with PVW, I'm done chasing it around. So here's what I actually got.

    2 x GTS
    2 x WLW
    1 x VWFRR
