    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Made a sort of "holiday" run today. The present for myself was a bottle of Lock, Stock and Barrel. Also grabbed 2x ETL, EWSB, and HW Rendezvous Rye.

    I agree with this assessment. It's not Stagg. When talking $50ish barrel proofs I prefer ECBP. But I like Stagg Jr in it's own right and have a few bottles on my shelf.

    Sounds like we have similar taste preferences. I also prefer ECBP but this Stagg Jr is really enjoyable at this price point.

    I had a friend in the Cincy area, so he swung by TPS for me. Picked 3x FRYL to use in my next batch of Barrel Aged Manhattans. Also had him pick me up a bottle of OGD114 that a lot of you rave about.

    He is supposed to drop it off tonight. I feel like a kid on Christmas.

    4x VOB BIB , 1 OWA SB
    Will probably grab more VOB after the holidays if there are any left.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    This is my first post on SB so a big Hello to all. I've been following SB for quite some time and have learned a ton about bourbon from the collective knowledge base that frequents this board.

    Anyway, I always keep an eye out for dusties, but have never actuall found one - until today - and I think I stumbled on a holy grail type find. Its an Old Weller Original 107 Proof. I know this is most likely SW juice, but want to know if anyone can enlighten me on any other info like bottling date and the label on the shoulder. Here is all the info I can discern from the bottle:

    Old Weller the Original 107 proof
    The glass has what looks like a gold crackling pattern
    No. M-3364 (handwritten?)
    Alcohol content is listed in proof not ABV
    No Government warning
    Volume is in mililiters
    Intact tax stamp that says "Distilled Spirit"
    Address says WL Weller and Sons, Louisville Kentucky
    There is a bar code
    On the shoulder, there is a label that says "Compliments of Filmore Tucci"


    And the best for last, $33.00 out the door with tax.

    Welcome to SB. It looks like you already know what you have other than the private label (which I can't help you with.) I would love to hear your tasting notes when you crack it open - enjoy!
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
