    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    I had some 2012 OGD114 last week and I was floored by how good it was...I couldn't resist picking up a bottle for $19.50 today along with some New Glarus Spotted Cow!

    I am heartened to hear this. There's been some rumbling here on SB that current OGD (BIB & 114) is declining, that maybe the yeast isn't what it was, etc. I haven't picked up a new bottle as of late, but I'll do so with no worry with you and Squire still satisfied with the old orange gentleman.

    I hadn't seen anyone talking about the OGD114 declining...I've tasted it with many a people who's palates I trust and each of them commented that they felt that the OGD114 was better than ever!

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    Did a little dusty hunting this evening, really just had some time to kill and friend I was supposed to hang out with was sick so I hit a few shops within a couple miles of the house while out running errands, came up empty. Not sure how you guys do it, cause I hit some shady places.All that to say, I did grab a bottle of VOB 90 proof, since I haven't seen one around in a while. While checking out asked the clerk if they ever got a case of Evan Williams white label in and he said distributor doesn't carry it in Georgia (anymore? was it ever here?).Continued to give another shopkeep a hard time about his prized bottle of THH still on the back shelf for $130.

    Haven't noticed it around these parts, but have seen such talk on a few other blogs. Still tastes great to me!

    Someone mentioned it on a thread here. They basically said the pre-2006/7 bottle they had was way better than their new one, or something like that. I don't know about those years, but my new bottles have been good to me. So have my new bottles of OWA for that matter.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Did some hunting yesterday and picked up 2 handles of OGB 86 from 1990 and 2 750s of OGB 114 fromm 1988. Plus a PHC Golden Anniversary and, while not bourbon, a mini of Knob Creek Rye to try.

    Nice finds Jwilly. The PHC Golden is the only one of the PHC's I don't have or tried. I'm jealous..
