Jon did you fellas post any tasting notes? I musta missed them.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
A bunch of Michters 10yr Bourbon, funny how much of this has suddenly appeared on the market
Family size Weller 12, should have brought a checked bag to Austin so I could have brought a couple home.
Best regards, Tony
Passed on some Wild Turkey 80 proof both in the 1.75 L and 1 L sizes. They also had some 101 with the old label.
Saw some WT Forgiven twice today. Had a distributor that was at the store try and tell me it was awesome, told him $50 for 4 - 6 year old product with a funny story was a joke and he got quiet and didn't disagree.
OFBB @$47 (actually less than i expected it for in KY), some Michters 10 @$95....ummm, hell no. EC21 and HW 21 both out of my comfort zone.
Eagle Rare for $50? I was offered a taste from the bottom of a bottle - mighty smooth!
(Hey, waddayawant - it was a small taste)
The usual store price is $36 here and even that has been too high to whet my whistle, yet.
Saw a Hirsh 28yo Bourbon for a king's ransom.
How about a showdown? Eagle Rare for $36, Bulleit 10yo for $42 or FRSB for $45?

Passed up some Old Charter 10 year (43%), usually only see the 8 yr in New Mexico. I also passed up some handles of 80 proof Wild turkey with gold labels, not sure how dusty those are, would have snapped them right up if 101's. Finally I saw a very dusty and neglected bottle of Wild Turkey tradition for $120. I wasn't very tempted at that price especially since the same store had three bottles of EJBP (not passed up)!
