    Bingstein! ER101 NOLA from 1990. No idea where the juice inside comes from (heaven?), but the NOLAs I've had have been magnificent

    If you have any Weller 12 it would be very interesting to hear some tasting notes as P15 is now (as far as I have heard/read....) 100% BT. What impact did that additional 3 yrs have on it?

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    The PVW15 2012 I have open absolutely crushes the several W12s I've had over the past year. I think the extra proof and barrel selection play a much larger role than the additional age. Now, a 65/35 SB blend I put out next to the PVW15 at my birthday in September was actually preferred by some in attendance. It's certainly much better than either Weller product on their own.

    How is the Charter 101... I'm from KS and think I've seen it yet I have never tried it... What does it compare to?

    Finally introduced myself in the "New to SB" sub today. Now on to today's bidness at hand:
    - WSR 7 x2 ($17/ea) - that briefly-available transition edition in the current bottle, but with 7yo on the neck, instead of 90pf on the neck; perhaps from ~09.
    - OC10 86 ($33 for the handle) - bottled ~97 IIRC, featuring that nice historic LV designation from the pre-FF years, and a little UD-authored hangtag on it.
    Also, in the past few days:
    - PVW 20 - mgr of a semi-local store likes the fact that I always have my well-behaved kids w/ me; he hooked me up with the 23 last year.
    - GTS - ditto.
    - ORVW 10 - ditto, albeit a different mgr, at a different store, on a different day.
    - WLW - ditto.
    - Balcones Texas Single Malt - a third mgr, a third store, a third day.
    - Stagg Jr - ditto; to compare to it's big bro (plus my first bottle of it was devastated on a recent camp-out).

    I think that's pretty good news.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I'd like to see the craigslist become non-flipper friendly next

    Don't drink a lot of Beam products, but I picked up a bottle of the Jim Beam 7 year old in SC the other day for 17.00 . Only 80 proof but good taste and balance and tough to beat for that price. I'll be buying again.
