    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Now, I'm just spamming my post count. It's late and I'm drinking. CAST THE FIRST STONE!

    I did forget one funny interaction which regarded the 1973 Beam decanter that was graciously gifted to me by a good friend. One of my tactics is to fein transparency by showing off a few acquisitions. I knew immediately that one would be this..."distinct" looking decanter. My wife has very specific tastes, and "genie-in-a-bottle" 1970s whiskey decanters is not among them. She spent so much time trying to figure out how to tell me to get rid of it once it was empty without sounding too bossy that I think she completely missed anything and everything else.

    Well, except the beer in the fridge

    Thanks Josh, I'll be using some of this tactic soon as I will be getting a major haul shortly as well!

    She knows all I am buying but for the next one clearing my office room would be necessary I think! I'll be bring in boxes instead of loose bottles to keep it clean and consolidated.

    Thanks
    Hugh

    I love my wife, not much of a whiskey drinker but when I told her i spent $300 on bourbon today, she barely registered that and asked me how much the 2010 Mondavi Fume Blanc was at the store i went to... She also went 50 miles out of her way today to check my honey hole liquor store for EHT Tornado

    Well, that all sounds in order. It reminds me of another tactic - keep the wife (and occasionally yourself) flush with aged tawny.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    I was sent to pick up some crappy flavored vodka that was on sale that my daughter likes. Keeping an eye out for the OFBB, which I haven't seen yet in stores around here. Wasn't there, but an E.H. Taylor Small Batch caught my eye. Never had it before, so figured it was about time to add it to the collection. My wife hardly batted an eye when I walked out with two bottles instead of one.

    A buddy of mine was working in the southern part of the state yesterday and ventured in TN. Brought back some great stuff for me:

    OWA 107 Single Barrel Store Selection
    EC12 Store Selection
    4R Barrel Proof Private Selection
    Weller 12

    Needless to say I was pretty excited about all of these, being in a control state.

    Managed to score a PHC 7 online, and Stagg Jr. magically appeared at my local ABC store.

    Good for it! Seems to be cascading down to the ABCs around here after I found it in Richmond. It was a big hit at a friends house for NFL Sunday this past week.

    And a ****load of beer. The amount of beer that makes your wife say "we need to get a beer fridge".

    Thanks to the wonderful retailers in KY and the excellent friends I've made here on the board for making this haul a reality.
    Impressive haul. I would have carjacked, (er, I mean protected) your vehicle if I had known what you had in there during our Hard Hat tour. I appreciate the tip you gave me with the OESF bottles at Four Roses but there just wasn't enough time to get there. I guess I have a reason to go back next year. Besides, it saved my money for a FRSMBLE13 that I stumbled upon later that weekend.
