    I'd like to know how it compares to Ritt BIB.

    Finally met Joe in person this evening. Picked up a Binny's Selection BT at South Loop. Considering going back for McKenzie by week's end. Tasted the bourbon and enjoyed it, need to try the rye.

I was able to talk to MAster Blenders, Master Distillers, Brand Ambassadors that had been both, and sit in on a bunch of seminars/classes. It was a great experience. I also managed to try a better part of 30+ different types of whisky over 2 glorious days. I ended up with the following selections:

    Signed (By Al Young) gift set of Four Roses Small Batch for a friend.
    Signed bottle of the 4R Small Batch for myself as well.
    Loch & K(e)y Society Jefferson's President's Select 18yr (Peope say this is "Pappy", I don't know about that, but it is damn good juice).
    L&K Bernheim Single Barrel (I know it isn't bourbon but dang if it wasn't outstanding.
    L&K's Elmer T. Lee single barrel

    I also bought some of my favorite scotches and what not that I always keep around the house. Got to take advantage of the 10% off while I can! I also purchased Al Young's book about Four Roses. It was $20.00 and 100% of the proceeds went to the Shriner's.

    Lucky you! I was booked up with family all weekend, or I would have tried to go myself...

    Glad to see an SB.com member likes the L&K JRPS 18 y.o., now I can start saving up for a bottle to try it myself. I already like the L&K ETL, and now I'll make a point of picking up the Bernheim, too!

    Well it wasn't today, but a couple weeks ago with the late release of Pappy here in NJ because of the hurricane I went around a couple of counties and picked up 5 bottles of PVW 20yo, 2-15yo, 1-23yo. 1-12yo, and 1-10yo ORVW. I just hit it right within a couple of days of deliveries, I'll probably never get that lucky again!

    Purchased a mystery bottle today (among other things) of straight whisky for VBT 436 and while updating my tasting notes realized it was very nice.

    Picked up an Old Forester Signature while out of town yesterday, since it is not available in PA
    Picked up a 1792 Ridgemont Reserve today, since it is on sale

    My first purchases in a while

    Not a bourbon, but picked up a new bottle of Baby Saz today. I like to keep one of these around.
