    At least this year you have a modicum of assurance that the lurkers aren't flippers.

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

    Good week so far. One of my clients gave me a bottle of George T Stagg as a present for some work I did for him. It was nice to be appreciated. Then I walked into a store I check in on occasionally and found 3 bottles of Saz 18 just sitting on the shelf. That place is becoming a must stop for me. Last time I went in I found a bottle of the 2009 4R Mariage.

    Via email, I asked JR for details about my case of FR1B (distilled April 8, 2004) and he replied:

    The barrel in which your six bottles of Four Roses Single Barrel were aged was filled on April 14, 2004. The barrel was dumped on 8/17/12 and bottled on 8/23/12. The age of Bourbon is calculated based on the day the barrel is filled and the day the barrel is dumped, so the age of the Bourbon you purchased is 8 years 4 months.

    Four Roses has 20 single story rack warehouses and the barrel in which your Bourbon was aged from the day it was entered until the day it was withdrawn for dumping was: the south side of R warehouse (RS,) the 80th rick, the 2nd tier and 18 deep into the rick (R = the 18th letter in the alphabet.)

    Each warehouse covers nearly one acre of land, and each is divided into 2 halves (north/south or east/west.) There are 90 rick locations on each side of a warehouse (45 on each side of the aisle) and barrels are racked 6 tiers high in each rick location. “2R” = the second tier and 18 deep into the rick.

    Many liquor stores – including Party Source – often purchase private barrels which will be bottled at barrel strength, and these barrel selections are open to all 10 recipes; however, OBSV is always used for the 100 proof program.

    [Side note - Jim calls 6 bottles a case, but TPS calls 12 bottles a case]

    I must be stung by the bourbon bee, 'cause I'm guzzling up this geeky detail.

    I too swallowed the bait hook, line and sinker. I knew where about 8 bottles had been last week. I already had a couple and had tried it and enjoyed it so I went to see if I could pick up a couple more. By the time I arrived they were down to three with several other people having bought bottles earlier today. I bought two and left one for the next person on the prowl.

    Might make a nice bottle for trade down the road and if not I already know I will enjoy them myself when the time comes!

    Same store still has a pile of 2011 LE Single Barrel sitting on the shelf for a couple bucks more than the 2012 SmB LE. I get the feeling they might stay there a while.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Hmmd and Hawed for awhile, before finally putting the 2012 19 yr and 23 yr BTEC's in my shopping cart today. The last couple releases have not intrigued me much, but for some reason these do.

    I was just in there for beer, but when I saw the 36 bottle entire-years-allocation of baby Saz hit the shelves, I couldn't resist and grabbed some. Even two years ago, this was readily available. The times they are a'changin'.

    2012 FRsB, signed by Jim Rutledge. Had to laugh, was heading to the store for the bottle, turned the corner to find Four Roses display and staff.
