    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    I'll echo that request. I always pass on the Rebel Reserve because it's more expensive here than EC12 and WT101 - it's just a buck cheaper than Maker's Mark (on sale).

    Hoping to grab a Weller 12 to replenish, sadly they were out.

    Happily, three ECBP came home to help smooth over my original disappointment.

    Make sure it is 10 year and not 10 star. 10 star is available outside ky but I don't believe 10 year is.

    And for you guys traveling to ky to buy 10 year AAA. Look for a 10-15% price increase and an absence of 750s next time you are in. Liters and half gallons are all that are available from distributor. Have been told 750s are discontinued but have not confirmed with BT yet.

    Anyone buy 750s of that anyhow? And yeah, any price increase is a bummer, but still a bargain regardless.

    Look I'm no Robert Parker, and I don't want to tell anybody what they should like, but I found the RR to be thin and weak. If it is aged much beyond Reb Yell it's a matter of months. Ended up vatting it with OWA and Bernheim and made a palatable pour. Would buy many others before springing for Reb Reserve again. YMMV as they say. Maui I would take any of those three first every time.

    Maybe not around here. But in my store, 750s outsold 1.75s by a considerable margin. Liters would be dead if not for on premise accounts.

    Found EC12 in Cheyenne for $16.49. Miss TPS for sure but I love the West!

    A few 10 year AAA (as in much less than Pappy few) occasionally make their way up here legitimately. And following up on the Parker invasion of our world this week one could now appropriately refer to AAA as the Blanton's second label .

    Saw a new batch of Blanton's, so I had to pick up a bottle - $36 out the door. Also, picked up a bottle of Clear Creek Slivovitz (Blue Plum Eau de Vie).

    Picked up a family size OF Signature. This may actually qualify as a "dusty" as it's the old label, and the store's website doesn't even list it at all anymore (not even an 'out of stock').... which is pretty sad, because the 750ml OF:S isn't available at all here either.
