    There was an empty shelf section with an upside-down sticker reading "Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year $49.99". I would have passed, then again I might have bit. I'm a little perturbed with myself for not going in sooner.
    Nice score on the Weller 12. Great bourbon for the money.

    I know the feeling about the empty shelf. I walked into a store while on vacation this past summer and saw the vast openness where the entire VW product line used to be, all at retail prices no less.

    The empty shelf hit me when I was visiting the Liquor Barn this past weekend. 4RSmB LE 2012 had the tag, but no bottles.

    Well, didn't actually buy it today, but it's the newest on my shelf. Bought it a month ago. But it finally arrived. Hope I have the gonads to open it one day.


    And thanks to one particular SBer who alerted me to its existence in a liquor store in Germany.

    Are you kidding? I'd open that bottle the second I got my hands on it, and you should too.

    Assuming you're in Louisville area again soon, there's one shop i know of with both 2011 and 2012 in stock.

    Wow...I know it's really none of my business, but how much did that set you back? I only ask cause the last one I saw sold for about $1000 (about a month ago). I'm jealous regardless!

    Well, that's pretty. Let us know what you think of it!

    I found a OFBB 2010 today that a local shop JUST received. (this will be a xmas gift to a buddy who's an OFBB fan)
    Also a WSR with age statement for $16. One of my favorites.

    Picked up a 2012 PHC. This one must have been a second dump. The first one was at 131.6 (or at least that is what I remember). This new one was at 137.9. Didn't think the first was great. Hope the second is better.
