    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    ER17. Atlanta situation crazy this year. Store got an off-duty sheriff to supervise due to rumors of fights breaking out in lines at other retailers.

    Am up in NYC so my first stop is always to buy Weller 12, got back to the hotel and cracked a bottle!

    Thanks to the awesome Bingstein..... I was able to find the 8 year WFE I'd been wanting since the Willett tour during KBF.

    I told my wife I wanted one for a Christmas or a B-day present, but that she'd probably not be able to find one. Bingstein told me where a stash of it was 2 hours from my home. Tonight, I went in to work and they wanted me to take some frozen steaks to a customer in that town, so I happily agreed, and got to drive there on their dime. I had to 'slightly' break the $50 rule, but since it's a gift TO me......



    118 bottles to a single barrel seems kinda low.....that's only 23 gallons left in the barrel after 8 years...
    Someone forgot to say "BINGSTEIN"! Good work gentlemen...

    Wife brought home a handle of EW black for me. Makes me love her just a little more.

    Uummmm...I realize this isn't history class, but at what point did Kentucky seceed from the union?

    KY never seceeded from the Union, but maintained that they weren't taking a political stance for either side. We were the Switzerland of the Civil War, along with MD, DE, and MO (together, the 4 made a pretty neat straight line east to west dividing the north from the south)

    That's completely incorrect. Kentucky stopped being neutral shortly after the Confederacy invaded it in 1861. There were many battles fought there, not just one. Troops being sent to both sides is correct, of course. Brother against brother.

    I swear I'm not trying to be argumentative, Doug. I'm just the biggest history nerd of all.
