    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    I found a bottle of CEH Taylor Jr Barrel Proof. Too expensive, but I like it. I have this idea in my head that someone is going to declare this a Stagg alternative and it will go all Weller/Pappy.

    I asked about the availability of CEHTBP last winter somewhere and the response I got was something along the lines of "It's going to be the next Pappy." could have been a wanna-be-flipper, who knows. I would have preferred a factual answer to a speculative one but this is just to say there are others who either share that view or hope for it.

    The triumph of hope over experience. Eventually beanie babies and cabbage patch dolls went out of fashion as well.

    Grabbed a couple private selection FRSB's for $46 each.

    One is OBSO at 107 proof. The other is OBSF at 124 proof. Both are 10 years + some months. It's pretty amazing how different they taste from one another.

    Just ordered some ETLC. Can't wait to crack it open.

    Well, for one I can't get it in Michigan, so that's one motivator to grab it when I see it. Second I do get the feeling people are going to connect the dots on the mash. And I like it. So, I've got a few bottles. I should be good. At least until a new batch comes out.

    Last week or so have picked up a SAOS 7y Rye, SAOS 8y Crown Liquor Store selection, the Crown Liquor 4R competition winner, and an Elmer comm bottle.

    Did you pick up that SAOS at the downtown Crown? What are the odds they still have any of that?

    Picked up a few more "session" whiskeys since my hockey-loving friends tend to drink in serious quantities when they come over: VOB BIB, HH BIB, JTS Brown BIB (my new favorite when outside smoking ribs which I plan to do this weekend) and OGD 114 to usher in this week's warm-up here in Chicago.

    One store in my area on the day of their Pappy/BTAC sale, after all the Pappy and BTAC had sold out, they tried to convince people it was part of the BTAC in order to keep their sales going...
