    My bottle was getting low so I picked up another to prevent this very situation.

They had a 115 proof and 120 proof. I tried samples of each really enjoyed the 120 from the sample so I snagged that. Anyone else try either of these yet or had any luck with other bottles from Old Scout?
    I'm a fan of Old Scout 6 Year, as my bottle is near empty. I find it spicy and definitely get some rye flavors. I bought a bottle of Very Old Scout 11, but haven't opened it yet.

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

    Last week I grabbed the last EWSB 2002 off of the shelf of the store nearest me hoping that would prompt them to get in the new 2003. Tonight their shelves were replenished! Strangely, they were replenished with EWSB 2001. The back of the bottle says that it was barreled on 9-13-01, #912, and bottled on 12-03-12 making it over 11 years old. Isn't this odd for EWSB?

    My 2001 was barreled 12/9/01 (into #828) and bottled on 10/20/11, so a little under 10 years. My 2002 (purchased yesterday) was barreled on 4/18/02 (into #845) and bottled on 9/18/12, so 10 years, 5 months.

    What I find interesting is the barrel numbering system. They are obviously not using the barrels in numerical order.

    Picked up a bottle of the devil's batch (66.6% ABV) of PHC12. Looking forward to seeing how this compares to the other batches and whether or not it requires me to relinquish my eternal soul or other such tomfoolery.

    That does sound odd, but I haven't been keeping up with the more recent bottles. I'll have to check the shelves around here. 11yo EWSB sounds good. You should pick one up and give it a try.

    I picked up some Bernheim Wheat Whiskey today. I've never had it, but I'm curious about it

    You should like this but drink it before you have drank any thing else. As it's so light it doesn't hold up well following up something else. Some whiskeys are leaders and some are followers some are both this is a leader.

    Hit a bunch of stores and only walked away with another EWSB 03. Didn't find anything else of much particular interest.
