    Yep, same. Though this was not my local Binny's and I'm not sure what their allocation was. It was sitting lonesome on the shelf and when I went to show my friend the lucky grab, the store employee he was talking to was quite disappointed to see me holding it.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Based on the conversations around OGD114 I broke down and picked up two more bottles for $27 each. It's pretty scarce around in my area so I bit the bullet. When I asked about getting any more ETL regular my guy told me that his MA distributor allocates 6 cases of BT product per month to their accounts due to demand. He has to pick and choose which he wants so he can't keep everything in stock. He's told them to float any leftovers his way no matter what the brand and he'll happily take them. Another comment he made was Four Roses is now controlling the allocations of the FRLE's as opposed to the distributors. He suspects that is tilted to favor those in the barrel program.

    I was out hunting for some Four Roses LE and found a couple bottles of Michter's 10.

    Wandered into a BevMo to kill a little time between meetings and ended up leaving with the last ECBP they had and a McKenna 10 year.

    Wow we bought the same thing today. ECBP and McKenna 10 yr here as well. This is my first time with ECBP...it is amazing. I took a small taste of the McKenna (also a first) and wasn't too impressed, maybe it will grow on me though.

    I've found with a couple bourbons I don't care for them until about 3-4 pours into the bottle and they start to grow on me. EC12 and 4RSB come to mind.

    I picked up a bottle of Elmer T. Lee and Four Roses Single Barrel LE 2014 today.

    Took some effort to get that FRs. Hope it's good.

    The McKenna does better after getting some air IMO. First couple pours weren't that great then I came back to it after a month or so and had a much more favorable impression. Though there are always variations since it is a single barrel.

    The ECBP acquisition concludes my months long search for it at sub $100 pricing ($54 in this case).
