    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Nice score Jason. Enjoy.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Won a lottery that gave me that opportunity to buy 1 bottle of

    -WLW
    -GTS
    -ER17
    -Sazerac 18
    -Thomas Handy
    -Lot B
    -ORVW 10
    -VWFRR
    -PVW 15

    Ended up going with the PVW 15, although it was hard to pass up the the VW Rye

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Yesterday, I bought a bottle of George Dickel 9 year Hand Selected Barrel (103 proof) from my favorite store. It came with a little medallion with the name of the store and the barrel number. Pretty neat.

    I've always had a bias against Tennessee whiskey, but my experience has been limited to the Jack Daniels product line. This bottle of Dickel is my first but I enjoyed my first pour quite a bit. I found that a tiny splash of water really opened it up to reveal a nice combination of caramel, vanilla, and butter. A nice long finish completed the experience.

    I will be heading back to the store to add a few bottles to my stash (I don't own enough to refer to it as a "bunker").

    I need to also get a bottle of No. 12 to use as a reference point.

    Dan, I'm planning on getting one of those this week. Glad it gets your seal of approval.

    i havent seen any store selected Dickel, just the 8 and 12. Ive actually not tried and JD or GD before anyway, but i would try one if i found a 100+ proofer. I'll have to keep an eye out for it

    The bottle is what I noticed first, but the higher proof is what got me to pull the trigger.

    ive always been curious to try some Tenn Whiskey, but at the typical proofs, i always walk past it. ive seen the typical 8, 12, and cascade hollow, but nothing else. then again, i havent looked in the 'specialty areas' that they might have placed it either, as i didnt notice until recently that this was even offered. ive considered the 90 proof, but always get something else. 103 proof would get me to try it though

    Decided to stop at TPS, since I was heading to the Cincy area to visit family. Surprised to see 2 AB Gingerbread finished sitting on the shelf. SOLD!!

    Great catch! Be sure to share your thoughts. That one sounds very good.
