Wait for it
Picked up a bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel 2003. I'm looking forward to giving this one a taste as soon as I finish my bottle of BT.
I've been waiting patiently for the 4RSmBLE2013 to show up in MA... On a whim, I dropped by a store that has a mostly unexciting whiskey selection, but very nice owners running it. Very unexciting with the sole exception that I've bought Four Roses Mariage '09, SmBLE 2011 and SmBLE 2012 there when I haven't seen it on the shelf anywhere else around here.
I scanned the shelf for a minute, and somehow my brain wasn't registering things properly, because I didn't see the red neck label and 125 on the bottle front the first two times I looked through the shelf. Then... bingstein!! My brain got it!! Two SmBLE 2013's were in my hands and I headed straight to the register. I had a lovely conversation with one of the owners while she rang up my purchase, and urged them to carry more specialty whiskies, and headed home with my prize.

Found a bottle of EC18 last night. Hesitated initially at the $60 price tag, but eventually came to the conclusion that it's still a bargain compared to the 20 and 21 year versions so it came home with me. Also picked up a couple of ice sphere molds and intend to try them after work.

I picked up a second bottle of PHC PoH and a Stagg Sr on Saturday thanks to "a little help from my friends."
