    Along with the 5 EC21s that's quite a haul and yes, you will find a use for them eventually. When I was younger I would've bought them as well (irrespective of reviews, I like to make up my own mind) but I've passed my general acquisitive stage. I suggest some tasting notes are in order, for science of course.

    Good for you dcbt! Here's hoping you enjoy each and every one. I appreciate someone who can visualize an opportunity and make a decision.

    Picked up Buck 8-year old. The bottle says it is Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and I believe they are a NDP. Does anyone know anything about it?

    Jesus. My curiousity is generally limited to one bottle. Well done (?) sir.

    The EC21 wasn't curiosity, I've had that one before.

    SA 10yr from TPS barrel strength and was able to try first at their tasting bar to decide between the two bottles they have. Went with #362.

    Yes, this one has been mentioned a few times, it's a sourced Bourbon and not a bad one but not one for which I would pay a premium. Let us know what you think about it.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Got these today at an estate sale


    OF BiB:



    OGD BiB




    8 year old Estes for my pop's 66th birthday in May


    And the mini for display (would never drink that grain neutral stuff)


    Thoughts on drinking the Estes? There appears to be some cork that is in the juice...hoping if we strain it and put it in a decanter we'd be ok, as there isn't much evap, so I can't imagine too much oxidation, just looks like the bottom of the cork started to break apart. Color is great though, clean and clear otherwise. Would also love any other info on the Estes...it was a choice between that and a 1948 Seagrams...

    Gold Star dusty hunting there BB. Ah, Estes Park, I vividly recall sitting on the porch of the Stanley Hotel at daybreak drinking coffee and watching the Sun's early rays hit the snow clad peaks of the Rockies which appeared close enough to stroll over and stand at the base.

    As for the whisky though all I can say it it's obviously a contract brand distilled in Indiana (maybe Seagrams but who knows) and bottled in Kentucky. During that era there were whisky brokers who bought up stock from different distilleries, aged the barrels in their own warehouses and produced whisky brands to order which would explain why Estes Park was made at one place and bottled at another.
