    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    Found several 2012 WLW (123.4 proof) in the wild today for a pretty good price and was tempted to pick up several bottles but decided to just get one since I already had a couple put away. Also picked up a Warehouse C I found at the same store and a Woodford MD Four Wood even though the reviews have been a bit spotty. Figured despite the rather high price I should judge for myself!

    In addition I came across what appeared to be an old Benchmark 375ml from Louisville with a tax stamp (pictures in the Dusty thread) and decided to pick it up for the outrageous sum of $7!

    Was this in Atlanta? If so, I'm impressed. I don't think I've ever seen anything like that around here, figured too many people around anything like that would have been picked clean long ago.

    It was indeed in the Atlanta metro area. I was surprised by it as well. The manager or possibly owner (I didn't think to ask) mentioned he got one of the last allotments in the city. No idea if that is true. Might have been a few bottles that got temporarily lost in the back of a distributors warehouse for all I know.

    BTW I was PM'd by someone wanting the location but apparently they are too new to receive PMs (which is odd since they sent one to me) or haven't set up there profile to receive them so that is why I haven't responded. Sorry about that!

    That was me - didn't realize I can't receive PMs yet. I will be in Atlanta with family for Easter and the WLW is the only antique collection bottle I'm missing from having the complete set. I understand if you don't want to post the store name in the main forum where eBay resellers can see it; I'm sure I will find a bottle in due time.

    Sorry to leave you hanging but I'd rather not put it out in the open.

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    Returned a 1.75 of MM that I purchased for bunkering during the proof snafu and no longer needed, and picked up 2 bottles of H McKenna SB BIB instead. I feel better now.

    I stumbled across two bottles of OWA 7yr. from '05 and picked them up. Passed up 4+ liters of WSR 7yr. at the same place.
