    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Have a buddy who did a 4 Roses Single Barrel private barrel selection at his store back in September. The group of us picked an OBSO 10 year. Finally came in today so I brought home six. Can't wait to open one up.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    FRSB holiday set with two glasses, this is the one from last year. I am being told that no FRSB or FRSmB gift sets are coming to Michigan this year. Maybe I will find some in Chicago in January.

    Best regards, Tony

    This year's version has "125th" rocks glasses. If yours just say Four Roses those are last year. But still very cool.

    I picked up a bunch of the gift sets last year, as I loved the FR glasses, I loved the two barrels that were represented in the store's gift sets, and they were only $30 for the set. Win Win Win. Frankly, for long-term usage, I'd rather have the generic FR glasses than "125th" ones, but that is picking nits. Nice sets all around, though they jumped to $36 this year around me.

    I grabbed a bottle today. Will crack it open during the weekend!

    Picked up a bottle of Larceny today. Anybody know if there's a way to get the rebate if there wasn't a form attached to the bottle?

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Took the tour at 4R today and picked up a SB OBSO at the gift shop. My kids are old enough to appreciate these little ventures now and this was a beautiful day to drive over. We really enjoyed the early tour and it and the facility are truly first class.

    *It is also worth noting here that the gift shop currently has all ten recipes of the LE barrel strength single barrel bourbons available at this time and from what I was told this is somewhat of a rarity

    After 4R, I wanted to take the "country" drive back home and see the new visitors center at Wild Turkey. I really wasn't planning on stopping in and drove through and by, then continued around the loop around the lot toward the exit. Thank God, my daughter spoke up saying "well, we may as well go in and check it out since we're here and all"....yes that is my child!

    So, you can imagine my surprise as we walk into the gift shop, at 11:30 on a Thursday morning, to find maybe a total of 5 people in the place (including employees) and one Mr. Jimmy Russell sitting on a stool in the lobby.

    Well....you already know the rest of the story (and my signed RR Rye sure is pretty)!

    Not today, but recently I have acquired some OESO, OBSO, OESV, OBSK (2013 LE), and OBSQ (2011 LE.) I can't wait to taste all of them in a flight (some I have had already.) Four Roses barrel proofers are a very rare sight around here. Thanks to all of the SBers that have helped me out! I'm already half way there in the quest for all 10 recipes...
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
