Stopped at one of my regulars to see if they had any EWW (they didn't) but I left with a couple OF Signature for under $15 each.
Ah, Grand Dad BIB for the Labor Day weekend, think I'll follow suit.

Good looking out, Bing!
Weller 12 for 24.99 (couldn't pass that up) and OGD 114. The '12 is flying off the shelves this week as the shelf was empty and I had to beg the staff to pull some out of the attic for me!!!
I'm currently on an "end of summer" vacation to Klamath Falls, OR. Flew in to Medford, OR, and drove the rental car to Klamath Falls via Ashland/Talent for the scenic drive. The forests, mountains, rivers and lakes sure are beautiful. But I have to admit that taking the scenic route gave me an excuse to hit a couple of the state-run liquor stores in Oregon. I've heard a lot of grumbling about Oregon's state-controlled liquor prices being out of control (isn't that an oxymoron?), so I just wanted some first-hand intel. Well, I realize that this is just a small sample size, but I'm happy with my haul and the prices paid. ECBP 134.2 proof (x3) for $39.95 each, and OFBB 2012 (x4, although the 4th bottle is hidden behind the ECBPs in the photo) for $36 each. An early birthday present for me! I guess the OFBB 2013 hasn't hit Oregon yet.

Willett FE 8 yr 122.6 proof. Barrel #1321. Broke my rule and bought it without any advanced tasting. Longshot, but anyone have any experience w this one? One of 175 bottles. No "Selected By/For" tag.
Edit: maybe a "Willett Roulette" thread would be good to compare notes and info?
