    Re: Bonham's Whiskey Auction

    There is some really cool stuff coming across for sale. The decanters alone would have been worth taking a shot...well, until they hit $250+. Maybe i'm better off just spectating and rooting for some SB'ers i hope are in the room.

    Yah, went for $800 though...still not too bad a deal if you couldn't find locally.

    I am taking wild guess the buyers online are from regions where you cannot find this stuff. Basing that on some astronomical prices earlier on.

    Re: Bonham's Whiskey Auction

    Got a question regarding the article. The 90 proof BUB I picked up last weekend has a '93 bottle date as well as the phrase "distilled, aged and bottled at the Buffalo Trace Distillery" which the article uses to date the bottle post '99. All of the BUBs that I can find detailed pics of have that phrase (can't find a clear one of the 107 proof version, which would disprove the articles claim outright as it disappeared around '92, right?).

    What's the age of my bottle? Thanks for the help guys.

    Oh and by the way, it's quite tasty. I opened it with a couple of fellow bourbon philistines the other night.

    Re: Bonham's Whiskey Auction

    The answer you are looking for should be in the most recent ETL BOTM thread. I posted some info there when I had a similar question. Also, use google to search the site instead of the built in search function. You will get better results.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Thanks x2, Joe. Never thought to use google instead of the in house search. Will give that a shot in the future.

    Regarding the BUB, The Ken Weber quote that you linked to states that the proof was lowered in '92 not '99.

    Re: Bonham's Whiskey Auction

    I can't remember for sure, but I thought they had both 107 and 90 after 92 and dropped the 107 completely in 99. Just pulling that info out of my hat.


    Edit: After reading that link it sure looks like you are right about the proof drop in 92.
