    2 x RIT BIB
    1 x VWFR 15 (K0790908:44) Reading previous threads the code suggests it was bottled March 20, 2009. Is there any chance this is SW distillate?

    Stopped in a new store today and they had 2 bottles of BTAC Weller sitting on the shelf. I picked up one. I might should have bought both of them.

    Got a bottle of Evan Williams Black label, need something of middle weight heft to replace Barton for luncheon cocktails so this one is on the try list.

    Found a Stagg in the wild for $99. Friend didn't care about the markup so I grabbed it for him.

    Visited a few stores today and picked up a FR1B OESQ Binnys pick and also bought another V17 for the bunker. Only one V17 left on the shelf and I'm already being tempted to go back for it. I'm gonna try to see how many of the FR1B picks I can taste in the next couple months.

    1.75 aged stated WSR
    Baby Saz
    ND 86 proof OGD

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

    My wife and I left our house this morning at about 10:00 to run a few errands, and stop at the grocery store. Somehow we ended up at Binny's South loop store. Don't blame me. My wife was driving. I got to see Joe Maloney for the first time in ages. Of course, and as usual, Joe was more than friendly and helpful. It was really nice seeing him again since I missed the last couple of get togethers at the South Loop store. Cheers Joe! Oh, and I did pick up a few things.

    We left the South Loop store and stopped at Ikea in Schaumburg. We stopped for a bite to eat after leaving Ikea. On the way home from there, we were near the Binny's Schaumburg store. My wife asked if I wanted to stop. Yes, she was still driving. What can I say? I ended up grabbing a couple more things there.

    Last but not least, we made a quick stop at another store on the last leg home. One more bottle there.

    Here's what I ended up with today.

    4-Weller 12's
    2-Maker's Mark 90 proof holiday gift sets....... Yeah, I know.
    1-Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch
    1-bottle of wine for our daughter in law
    1-Binny's hand picked Buffalo Trace
    1-Bowman Brothers Small Batch
    1-Ten High Ten Year Old

    FWIW, we did manage to get to the grocery store before finally making it home at about 8:00 this evening. Needless to say it was a long, but good day. We both had a great time.

    It is a mix of Stitzel-weller and Bernheim juice. Enjoy that bottle, it's much better than the new stuff.
