    Evan Williams SB 2002 and Weller 12, both for under $22 a piece.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    So recently I've been drastically cutting back my overall consumption as I prepare my liver for Kentucky Derby season in Louisville. I had been hitting it pretty hard in Feb-Mar and I need the month of April to normalize before I abuse my liver any more.

    And when I'm not drinking alcohol, I'm buying alcohol.

    Today's haul:
    2 x Elijah Craig Barrel Proof
    JPS 18 SW Batch #11
    Mellow Corn

    Yeah I know that last one doesn't fit, but I wanted to try it in a margarita as was suggested by Bernie Lubbers.

    I also purchased a bottle of Evan Williams SB today. Mine's from 2000. It's taken me forever to hunt down anything pre-2002 because the majority of my local store's rotate out their stock very frequently. I'm looking forward to drinking this.

    I can't wait to find EC barrel proof. Have you tasted it yet?

    I did, and without doing a full-on tasting session it is very oaky up front, followed by spice, then vanilla, and the heat gets you in the finish. In a good way.

    Picked up an EC BP, opened it at the store and gave each of the owners a taste but didnt get to taste myself as I was headed to the gym. I have taken some time building a relationship with them and they have hooked me up with some very tough to find bottles, this seemed to go a long way with them, they seemed surprised that I was willing to share, I hope they remember next fall.

    Yes, I believe it is.

    Is WT 101 BPB? If so, then this is the second.

    I'm pretty sure that Wild Turkey comes out of the barrel at right around 108 proof (as in WTRB). So WT 101 is almost barrel proof, but not quite.

    Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve for $45.99. Could'a fooled me that its 120 proof since it goes down so easy. Great bourbon, but at this price I may not buy another.
