    Good price on that WLW12. I pay at least $3 per bottle in the midwest, unfortunately.

    You did the right thing.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Nice. Only 50 minutes, not bad and you got the package.

    If it was a major hub the line could be a mile long so trying to pull a package off the line isn't that easy. Here it's a little different.

    I know the feeling and had done the same myself at USPS and actually went to the back with them to find the truck.

    The need for the instant gratification is so powerful but in hindsight for me it wasn't really that important, relatively speaking and not their fault I wasn't home to sign it. Now I just request no signature please.

    Now tell us how you enjoy it!

    Cheers,
    Hugh

    Bourbon-ish, Balcones Texas Single Malt.

    Liking it so far, now comes the "sample with a grilled steak" challenge later this weekend.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    I don't often get excited in a store.

    today, I got very excited!

    from the outside, it didn't look like much, and walking in, I didn't have high hopes.

    Saw the Woodford four wood at the end of the shelve, had some of the rye two pack. Nice, but not my cup of tea.

    JPS 21-overpriced, and 18-ok priced, but have enough. No 17,did look through the pile. Also had a EW23- too much for me.

    look down, EC18, good price, getting excited, I really like this bottle.

    Look up, FR Small Batch 2011, woohoo!!!! Look, but no 2012 in row.

    then I glance my head just slickly to the right, multiple colors of PHC looking at me!!!!!! Blended, cognac, wheat, and my ultimate fave, the golden. Raging, woohoo excited!!!!!!!

    After much debate, and hand wringing, the golden, of course, the wheat, duh, and two FR come home with me.

    Heart racing excitement. Stunning day.

    get back, and tell wife about purchase, she ask's, are you sure that's all, there isn't anything else???

    Oh yah, she's a keeper!!!

    Wow. Might be one of the finer rare/one off collections at a retail store right now. Especially if prices were not outrageous.

    Six good ones for a single maybe maybe not is always the right choice.

    After visiting the BT distillery and hearing that Weller 12 is in short supply, my wife was more than happy to let me bunker several today, even after a nice shopping trip to KY. She even carried them into the house for me while I cut grass

    I ended up paying $26.99 a bottle which is about $3 more than I remember paying the last time at the same store. I will be curious as to whether they will be able to restock once they sell the remaining bottles. I left two.

    I already have an open bottle so I opted for VOB BIB tonight.
