    You're a good man, Matt. Imagine that's going to your dad, who I'm sure will be overjoyed?

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Went to a couple of stores yesterday to look for the good stuff, and no FR LE, Pappy or BTAC around. Picked up two standard ETL bottles at $26 each. I have a couple of store select ETL bottles, but wanted some backup of the standard release. Passed on plenty of EC21 north of $120, PHC Promise of Hope at $99, and a new 14-year old SB George Dickel for $70 at Shoppers Vineyard. I'll probably end up picking that up at some point, and I think they have a 9-year SB coming down the pike as well.

    Likewise here but found nothing of any interest that I didn't already have or could not get any time I needed more. Count yourself lucky on that standard ETL at $26. I'm 'out of the loop' somewhat in terms of bourbon the first 3/4 of each year due to workload & schedule. So, I don't know what has happened around here in the last 10-12 months as far as ETL goes, but, last year about this time it was $24-29. Now I can't find any less than $39 + tax. Maybe it's the BT shortages...or so the distributors & retailers in this state would like us to think. Anyhow, being in the state immediately south of KY means nothing any longer in terms of availability & price....but, maybe it's my 20/20 hindsight memory and it never did.

    You should try it, fox. Know it doesn't fit your profile but it is just such a tremendous off the shelf pour.

    ETL is such an easy drinker. Nothing mind blowing in my opinion, just exactly what bourbon should be. I just bought my first bottle of it, and Im glad I did

    I second this wholeheartedly. I don't know why I dragged my feet by not trying this for a long time. It's a terrific, terrific pour, even at 90 proofs

    My brother and his wife, actually. I plan on getting them a set of Glencairn's to give with the bottle.

    Got my dad taken care of earlier in the year with respect to PVW.

    I wish I could hook up all family members who ask me about VW stuff. Sadly it's just not possible these days. If only I had known what the stuff was 4 years ago when it sat on the shelf...
