    If you say so, I'd have to go look it up and that would be like work and I'm retired.

    As am I. Well, for the evening at any rate.

    No idea if it actually works out that way, but I did read it on the Internet.

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

    Went to an out of the way store and found OWA (7 y/o) in the 1/2 gal. And Wild Turkey American Spirit 15yr, and Wild Turkey Tradition 14 year for $75.95 each. Thought I would try them at that price I've never had them before. The few times I have seen them they were over $100.

    Wow, funny timing. Just having my 2nd pour of Bulleit right now, and I was logging in to mention I get a very vague sense of standard 4RSmB out of it. If you imagine 4RSmB with the rye kicked up and the floral/fruitiness tamed way back.... Funny that I'm just now noticing the tiny bit of floral/fruity mix in the Bulleit that was so prominent in the 4RSmB bottle I just finished (I hadn't noticed it in my pour last night).

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

    So I had planned on (and came very close to) buying 2 Liter size bottles of 90 proof MM today, in addition to some other bottles. But ultimately I changed my mind and I'm glad I did. Instead of the MM, I bought:

    2x Weller 12
    2x Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve's (I helped choose the barrel)
    1x Buffalo Trace
    1x OGD 114

    I prefer all of these bottles greatly over MM. And the MM, if I had bought it, would just sit forever on the shelf.

    Sounds a lot like my day...

    2x OWA Family Size
    Weller 12
    Ritt BIB

    And no Maker's Mark, even passed on 1.75s at $15 less than I normally see them.

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

    among some other things, i picked up a CHETsmb. never messed with any of the CHETs before, and figured if i liked their entry level stuff it might convince me to try some of their more expensive offerings. i realize i might have just paid for some pretty packaging as much of this bt mashbill can be found in other bourbons on the market. hoping that barrel selection will make the difference in price worth it

    I checked out a couple hole-in-the-wall stores about an hour away and found EWSB 1996 and 1998 on the shelf. A bit overpriced, but I figured what the hell, not likely to see these vintages again.

    Like some posters above I am also comtemplating squirreling away a MM...perhaps a 750 ml just for the heck of it. Went to the store and left with an OGD 114 and an OFBB 2012. Guess I'll have to get the MM later or just scratch it all together.
