    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    Wait a minute, if that label doesn't correctly disclose the DSP (one of the reasons for the law) then the use up old labels rule is being stretched pretty thin.

    Paul can you describe the label a bit more.

    Being able to use old labels really surprises me. What's to keep them from printing more and saying they are old?

    Nobody has ever had an explanation on the mystery with LUXCO and their labels but it's a reality. Here is another thread on a LUXCO bottled Schnuks labelled as BIB but also stating it was 36 months. The Nicholson BIB squat bottes should have a year date embossed in the bottom glass and I have seen '05, '07 and '09...still with the DSP 16 label. Even in '05...you really think they had tanked DSP 16 juice for that long or using 13 year old barrels ?

    I would've asked for a picture but he mentioned seeing them at the store which I presumed would be closed on Sunday. Liquor stores are closed on Sunday aren't they? Or is it just the sparsely populated heavily wooded area where I live.

    Not quite. It varies by state and I suppose by county in some areas. My current state, MN, doesn't allow Sunday liquor sales. But freedom loving Wisconsin has them open 7 days a week.

    It's a county by county thing here.

    I was kidding, I know liquor laws around the country are as scattered as bird shot in their wide spread differences.

    Picked up an ECBP (first batch) thanks to a fellow SB'er. And yes, it feels as if a great weight has been lifted The WN has been fed enough for today

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    Nothing crazy, but I grabbed a couple of Old Forrester 75th Anniversary Gift packs in Jersey while on a long weekend beach trip. Cool Glencairn class and 21st Amendment replica, but the juice left me feeling bleh...I believe its a recreation of whiskey from that era, though I'm not sure. Can anyone fill me in? Also grabbed an OP 14 Single Malt which I quickly swapped for another EH Tornado.
