    Everything I've read suggests very much that the Breck on the shelves today was NOT distilled there. Which I could care less about, given that I like it a lot. However, it got me wondering 'how much will this change when their own white dog goes into the barrels?', which led me to 'how much of this do I need to bunker in case I don't like it when the change comes?' So, I called the distillery. Didn't get to talk to the master distiller, but the gal I talked to was really sweet, and said she'd go present my questions directly to him. About an hour later, the phone rang, and she said she'd spoken to the man, and nothing will change before summer of 2013. She also said "he asked me to tell you that you will not be able to tell the difference when we move to our own juice". So I'm really hoping he's right.

    Grabbed 2 bottles of PHC 6th and 3 bottles of Weller 12 year. Can't wait to open the PHC after reading through the "best of 2012" thread.

    Picked up 6 bottles of 2012 FR LE SmB. Really glad I have some to bunker. I was afraid I wasn't going to find any this year.

    Wow, nice! I haven't come across either 4R LE this year. A shame, but you can't catch them all.

    I had some luck in my holiday travels. Picked up a vertical of OF birthday 08-12. Was shocked to find them all in one place. Bought two sets. Also had to buy a Hirsch 21 Rye as I had never seen one in wild.

    Not bourbon, but 4yr old Willett Rye.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? - Winter 2012/2013

    Picked up a HH 80 which I have seen on the MI liquor list but have never seen in a store, EW 1783 which I have only seen once before, OGD 114 and 2 age stated WSR. I went out simply looking to replace my OGD 114 (which is the best bang for the buck out there) but none of my regs had any (1 shopkeep told me there was an OGD 114 shortage in MI, which didn't make sense to me but...) so stopped by a lil shop I have been in but don't frequent and came across all this for around $90, I was happy.

    Outlaw that would have been my shopping list as well, surprising how much good Bourbon you can get for less than $100.00.
