    What Bourbon did you purchase today? Winter '13-'14

    The Winter Drinking Thread was started, but not the Purchased, so I'll start it now.

    I couldn't resist when I got the call and went for a Pappy 15. Picked it up today with the Fireball, which is like drinking Red Hots candy.
    Also picked up my HHSS SB bottles. I also recommended 4R Sm B to a customer wandering the Bourbon aisle; he seemed to appreciate the advice and I'm pretty sure he bought it.

    Here's the BT buffalo watching my Pappy 15 while waiting for Joe to bring my HHSS.

    Did a little 'dusty hunting' with my son, Gary today. I managed a few slightly aged Old Foresters, and one handle of OF that seems to be from mid-to-late-eighties (tax stamp, no gov't warning) along with a WT-101 that Gary thinks may be from the early 2000's ('01-'04?). He picked up a WT-101 that's a little older.
    Was some fun, and worth the effort, especially since it was some time we were able to spend together, "just the guys".
    Whenever I open the 'handle' I'll post about how it is.

    i still consider myself pretty new to bourbon all together. i have found some great bottles throughout these 10 or so months. so today i found my first ever PAPPY VAN WINKLE! 15 year nevertheless, the one i really desired. maybe because its the only one ive ever tasted due to all the built up hype ive heard about the 20 or 23. i still feel numb!!! is this normal??? some thoughts on when you've found that "special bottle"...?

    What are the details of HHSS? I've never seen or heard of it. A dusty, or something new? Cost? Tasting opinions?

    Happy Holidays!

    Don't we all??!! Even though I am still new to bourbon crowd, nothing beats that feeling you get when you score bottles of something for the first time. To me it doesn't matter if it is Pappy or ECBP, it is a joyous moment when you realize you are going to be drinking some fine liquor.

    What did you pay for the ECBP? I picked up one locally for around $60 after our taxes and was fairly pleased with that. I may go back for the second bottle tomorrow (they were limit 1)

    The label for this popped up and was discussed like a year ago. It's "Heaven Hill Select Stock" and was speculated to be a private barrel program from Heaven Hill.

    Now the interesting part is that the label on the side seems to say this was privately selected for Straight Bourbon (it's a small blurry photo so maybe I'm wrong). Did some members get together and pick this?

    Old Scout 92 Single Barrel. One left on the shelf - maybe the only one that was ever there? I've never seen it anywhere else.
