    Nice find,great price as well all the decanters I usually find are at mind numbing prices so I pass because the juice inside is always such a gamble.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    Since there's a rebate offer going around and I've been wanting to try it for awhile, caved in and bought a bottle of Ezra B single barrel 12 year. Bottle dates were from either 2011, 2012, or 2013. I picked 1-12 bottled on, barrel 448.

    Haven't had a chance to taste it yet but must say it smells amazing. This is one of those bottles I am very hopeful about but realistic as well. I'll post about my thoughts later when I get to sip it in the "what are you drinking tonight thread".

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    Perhaps I have posted this before but its very interesting to me how this would probably be categorizable as a BIB if they wanted to; its probably all from the same distillery and distilling season since its a single barrel. Something about that 49.5% is slightly fishy to me, its like they fudged it just ever so slightly that it became not BIB-able. Sure they'd be able to call it BIB with only a half percent more alcohol...but then they'd also have to tell where it came from.

    BIB's not a requirement of 100 proof whiskey (see: Knob Creek, Old Forester Signature for example.)

    Was able to grab a bottle of Lot B via raffle at my local store. I paid retail, so I did not get BX'd at the register. Also picked up a bottle of JB Black while I was there as well.

    Likely they just don't want to (or are prevented from) listing the distillery. The 99 proof might just be something to make it stand out a bit as a little different. Anyway, enjoy! I bought an EB SB a few months ago and it is almost dry. I think I've read the speculation is HH, and a SBS w/ EC12 is interesting - the EB is slightly less sweet, maybe with a more herbaceous character, less oak tannin yet with a drier finish. I loved my bottle and will be looking for a replacement.

    I'm sure the 99 proof bit is a gimmick. Why I can't imagine, 100 proof is more recognizable and listing it as a BIB is optional.

    Got you covered brother. Let's plan on swapping some bottles later this week.

    Don't mean to thread jack, but I'm really loving Bunnahabhain right now. Had a sample of some 40 year old a few weeks back and just picked up a cask strength 22 year old single barrel.

    Stagg Jr (for a friend) and a Willet Estate 6 yr single barrel bourbon 119 proof. Don't know much about the Willet, I see the Rye all over the place but haven't seen much of the Estate Bourbon
