    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Traveling for work. I found a Batch 4 (132.4 proof) in Fort Wayne sitting on the shelf. It was the only one they had. It was at a chain store so it is possible that other stores might have one. The price was $42.99 so I bought it.

    I also picked up a store select Evan Williams Single Barrel 2003 for $23.99.

    I was pretty happy to walk out of the store with two very good Heaven Hill bourbons for $71 including tax!

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Went into a local chain to get some Eagle Rare and happened to notice on their discount/new stuff rack a bottle of Elijah Craig BP, batch 4. Grabbed it after a double-take (limited releases are normally pure allocation or lottery in St. Louis). One of the workers noticed my double take and laughed a bit. Apparently they'd gotten an unexpected extra case and two went to folks that they'd given a bottle to they didn't have the initial release and just put the last out on the shelf for the folks that actually walk in the store, not just hit the blog/website.

    So ECBP batch 4 and Eagle Rare went home with me this afternoon. Not a bad day.

    Randomly went into a new liquor store in my area to say "Hello" and see what offerings they had on the shelves.

    To my surprise, they had a couple of bottles of ECBP. Grab one for myself and left one for someone else.

    Needless to say, it was a very pleasant surprise.

    Picked up 2 bottles of OGB BiB and 2 bottles of VOB 100 for the bunker!

    Well...maybe I will drink some now.

    FR SiB LE 2014 at the Lawrenceburg gift shop. $110 + tax. I was there in April and put my name on a reserve list. I was #88 out of 100 allowed, one bottle per person.

    Having mixed feelings. This price is above my normal per bottle limit. I went ahead and bought it knowing I could always PIF later on down the road.
    A man's got to know his limitations.

    Not bourbon, but I got a Bernheim small batch wheat whiskey. Normal price $50. It was 25% off and I had a $5 off coupon. Figured it was worth a shot at $32.50
    Im a simple man. All I want is enough sleep for two normal men, enough whiskey for three, and enough women for four.

    when it rains...it pours. Was trying to scale back a bit to save some money but ended up stumbling on a few things i wanted and couldn't pass up at their prices. FRSB LE 2014, a Wild Turkey Tradition and finally a Bookers roundtable batch (which i've seen around but finally found it for $49) Thinking im going to do a Bookers 25th and Roundtable side by side tonight.

    Brought home a SAOS 10 yr, FRSB LE 2014, and figured I'd give Larceny another shot.

    Did you find the FRSB LE 2014 in NYC?
