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

    Rouse's, the local chain grocery store around here, did a barrel selection for Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, and Blanton's. When they first came out, I was reluctant to make a move as I didn't have much faith in the whiskey selection ability of their corporate staff. However, they went on sale this week, and with the bottles I keep at the office for clients running low, I decided give them a chance.

    I've only cracked open the Blanton's so far, but this one is exceptional.

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

    Saw two horns on top of a bottle sticking up from the middle of a recent delivery still on the floor at a local shop. Sure enough a lone GTS nobody even realized was there and doesn't hurt that it was a couple dollars cheaper than I've seen it anywhere else. Figured I'll not likely see another and it never hurts to have an extra (or two).

    Ok, I take it back. Got a call from one of the local stores today, and they had a Stagg and a WLW waiting for me...sweet...some of that leg work earlier this year finally paid off. Now what was I doing...oh yeah, I was on a spending freeze.

    Got the call this morning and in the early afternoon picked up a WLWx2 and a Handyx2.

    Its been said, and worth repeating, make nice with your retailer, and they will make nice to you.

    That, and the occasional gift bottle to them doesn't hurt either.

    CEHT SmB. First time I've seen it in on the shelves. Really enjoy the Barrel Proof and Tornado so I picked one up.

    Picked up a Ritt BIB DSPKY354. Passed it over a couple times so decided to get it this time. I did pass on a Hirsch 25yo Rye for about $180. Anybody have an opinion on this one?
