    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Not today, but recently picked up a store selection FRSB. Nothing earth shattering, but a solid drinker.

    Worthy of picking up a couple

    Hey, at least if you like it you know you can go get some VOB Old #6 On The Neck Label BIB!

    kinda what I expect. Bought one to drink, one to put in the cabinet. There was no age stated VOB BIB there, but a good deal of 6 year 90 proof was there.
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    I tried not to smirk or grimace when he explained that his friend who is a "bourbon aficionado" told him that the extreme heat and cool nights makes it mature faster - so 2 years here is like 8 yrs in Kentucky. I just nodded and said "Really? Hmm . . ." I had already talked myself into it as I have been at a loss for what to pick up as souvenirs when I travel, so locally made bourbon sounds like a better option than the t-shirt

    Yeah, it's 4 year or older Barton, should be decent stuff. The last time I had KT bonded it was made by a different company in the years before the brand landed over at Barton.

    Old Charter 12 year old (Buffalo Trace production), Old Forester signature, and two Barterhouses for a friend.
    Also, earlier in the day, picked up 4 Old Charter 8yr Louisvilles, a gaggle of dusty Pusser's rums, a special edition Metaxa, and a Wild Turkey honey liqueur. All in all, a pretty great day!Final.jpg

    Picked up some Hirsch 20 Illinois Whiskey (because my wife grew up in Peoria).
    Over the weekend, grabbed a bottle of A Bowman Double Barrel, and took a shot on the second batch of Stagg JR.

    I was looking over the selection at a store today and for some reason the Elijah Craig 12yo was just to good to ignore.
    So I bought it, 12yo at 27 bucks, unreal in today's market.
    Good change of pace from what I have been drinking.
