    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    I think it is unclear whether OF Signature is not bonded. IIRC, at one point B-F stated that the term bonded was not considered meaningful for most current consumers, so the designation was finally removed (a few years ago), but I don't think they said it no longer met the requirements for bonded bourbon. Or perhaps they did, can anyone clarify?

    Nice little haul. Is the Abe Bowman 17 pretty easy to find in VA ABCs, or is it really sporadic?

    I think I got lucky, have heard they are pretty easy to find around the time it's released, but I think it's been awhile since they put one out. I only went to the 1 VA ABC store on my trip.

    Was this near DC? I've never seen one in all the VA ABCs I've been in.

    Gary ... like you, ANY discussion of PVW quickly reminds me how many delicious offerings are out there for a whole lot less. Certainly enough to keep me occupied.

    Was going for the Bulleit (sp?) 10 year today but not really sure how to spell it or pronounce it plus it was $44. So went with a Four Roses Small Batch instead, I can spell that, pronounce that and it is under $30.

    Best regards, Tony

    Bulleit (pronounced like "bullet" I believe) is around $35 here, 4R Sl Btch is $26. I just bought some 4R Sm Btch yesterday. It's very very good for that price. Unusual flavor.
