    As far as I am concerned the 1-29-92's are the best EC 18's ever, they have a great blackberry vibe in them.
    I really like them too Oscar...there is a store that I drive by every now and then that did a private barrel of it...fantastic juice...I grab a couple every time I'm there.

    Oscar, have you tried Binny's 5/15/92? IMO, these beat out the 1/29/92s, but 1992 was a great year for distillation!

    Purchased a bottle of VWFR Rye today from a fellow SBer here. That makes the family complete now.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!

    Used a store credit to buy a Bulleit 10, because I'm such a Four Roses fanboy and I like the packaging. The text on the sides of the box are easily worth the premium. And I haven't even gotten to the sheet inside the box yet.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    I have been to KY several times but this is my first visit to buy bourbon. We are visiting relatives. I had never met old granddad but apparently he is 114!

    Anyway, first, props to MyOldKyDram, who suggested Red Dot in Frankfort. I really appreciated the tip. It is an awesome store. The selection is at least 5 times what I can find at my normal liquor store in Brownsburg, IN. The prices were comparable on brands that I can get back home so I thought that the prices were reasonable.

    I ended up purchasing

    VOBBIB
    OWA 107
    Larceny
    AAA10
    OGD 114

    That was my initial purchase. I plan to visit another local store or two while in town. If I don't find anything that I like, then I know where to go before I leave town.

    I am not sure what I am looking for but wouldn't mind finding some ECBP or maybe EC18. I am probably looking for a bottle in the $40-50 range and then a few cheaper bottles. They have HHBIB Gold and HH 6-year BIB, although I am not certain if they would be redundant.

    I was very happy with the Larceny find. They had it in Indiana earlier in the year but I couldn't find any bottles with the rebate form. I ended up with two $10 rebate forms on my bottle. Yes, by accident. I noticed that later. So, that bottle will end up only being $15. Interestingly, I noticed some Ancient Age bottles with $3 rebate forms but not the AAA10.

    Is ECBP pretty difficult to find? I realize EC18 is.

    Probably the only place you'll find ECBP in Kentucky is at Heaven Hill in Bardstown. It's not the same as the retail bottle - they have bottlings of various proofs available. It is more expensive than the retail bottle.

    The HH Bonds are not redundant. I love them both, but the Gold is obviously younger.
    You found Larceny in IN? That's interesting. Just to warn you - the rebates are no good here. You'll have to have them sent to someone out of state.

    Yeah, unlikely to find either of those two. Oddly enough, I did pass on several EC18 in IN last weekend.

    Coolest thing I've bought lately are a couple bottles of Russell's Resevre single barrel. One signed by jimmy Russell himself from his visit to the downtown Specs in Houston.
