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

    That's a pretty solid price on that Hirsch I haven't seen it for less than $220.

    That's a ridiculously high price for a NPP (no provenance provided) brand trading on a former reputation.

    That's not a bad price on the 25. All three of the Hirsch rye are good, with the 22 being nothing short of stellar. If you are interested, you can find my notes here.

    I read those notes LB and they are very good, detailed, well thought out and to the point. Have you had the opportunity to sample the 21-25 year old Rittenhouse expressions? I would like to hear how they compare with the Hirsch.

    You can be a purist, I'll be a pourist.

    Facts are facts, 180 < 220.

    Thanks for the notes LB, that was the info I was looking for. $180 is a bit steep for me at the moment plus I have a few unopened ryes in the bunker to work through so I won't be picking that one up any time soon.

    Hmm, don't think of myself as a purist . . . pourist though, well, that description does apply.

    I had a clever classmate in college and an old professor (I mean the guy was old, born in the 1890s) who upon hearing my friend's latest retort leveled his gaze and in an even voice said, "You are smartazzcanbe", say that fast and it's funny.

    I had one of those weird, magical days today. Went to my favorite store to purchase their newly-arrived, private barrel selection of JPS 18 yr. After a fun discussion with the owner about S-W and wheated bourbons, he asked if I wanted to buy some PVW for comparison. Hmmm, let me think. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance and walked away with a PVW 15-year to go with my JPS. Then, as I was checking out, my cell phone rang. I didn't answer but called the number back once I was out of the store. It was one of the locations for a larger liquor store in the area telling me that my name was on the list for Pappy and I had my choice of the 10, 12 or 15 years. I opted for the 15 and then went directly to that store, where I walked away with my second bottle in less than an hour. I seriously can't believe my good fortune.

    Wife might think I'm crazy, but it's already been a great Christmas.
