    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    Got some Hirsch 25 rye and two different bottling of Willett 21 bourbon.

    With the Hirsch 25 rye being the remaining stock from Medley and the PVWFRR was the only rye I can drink and like, I am excited to try it.

    If I get home not too late will be opening up the Hirsch 25 Rye.

    If it was Buffalo Trace or Woodford Reserve these 18yo single barrels would go for a hundred per.

    Could you share the bottle details alongside the tasting notes?

    Oh, and I bought a Ritt100 and another handle of Old Crow Reserve.

    Just got in and almost midnight so I will have to wait until tomorrow for a side by side with PVWFRR and THH.

    As a side, on the way home swung by a store and was able to picked up another WT American Spirit. The young guy said he is willing to do $70 with tax included. I said sure that's great. Thank you.

    Cheers
    Hugh

    Couldn't help it and had to have a tasting tonight.

    Some notes here, sorry can't put into words all the different tones and flavor that I taste and nose, except that I love it!

    sorry, not really bourbon, but grabbed these two small bottles from Koval, a distillery on Chicago's north side, at the Green City Market.
    they use millet as their secondary grain in their bourbon
    hope to get to their tasting room and take a tour of the distillery over the summer

    Also got to watch chef Rick Bayless make a margarita in the demo tent.
