    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Snagged 2 Lot Bs yesterday with the aforementioned help of Bingstein. A pretty nice end to a very busy fall bourbon-hunting season. Now time to enjoy those bottles. Cheers!

    Officially yes, but they did provide at least 9 infantry brigades to the Confederacy. Interestingly, both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis were born in Kentucky.

    Fortunately, one was more competent than the other. In the midst of a divided country, KY was also a divided state, and sent troops to both sides. I believe only one actual battle happened in KY though. Technology and industry usually win.....

    Squire, I am always pleased that your history geekiness exceeds even my own!



    Back on topic, the wife and I are going to Sams club today for a membership, we havent had one in years. I look forward to seeing the bourbon selection, and she used to love the prices of wines there.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Hit up a not often visited store in my area. Usually nothing, but today I spied something very out of place

    Two Weller 12's sitting in the mix of SR and OWA. No price tag on the shelf. Went to the front to ask about a price, bottle wouldn't scan.

    She brought somebody else over, and looked it up by name. Said $16.99. I mentioned I would be right back with the other bottle.

    While I know that the price was way off from the norm, i wasn't going to argue with the manager when they quoted it.

    Dumb luck, generally it isn't even available in the state!

    I had a store call me to let me know they had a Small Batch LE waiting for me. The manager said it was the only one they got. She handed me off to the cashier and walked off. She rang it up at $37 after tax. I explained to her there was no way that was the right price and that she should check with the manager. She REALLY didn't want to and tried to talk me into the lower price! Long story short, I paid full price.
