    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2014

    Hit a few different stores I don't frequent on my way home on a whim.

    Grabbed a Stagg Jr. (they had lots on the shelf) at standard retail.

    At another store I grabbed two bottles of WFE 8-year old (barrel 6165, 117.6 proof) for what is probably the going rate now. First time I've seen any of those on the shelf this year. Gonna have to give it a side-by-side with the store-selected SAOS 8-year I picked up last week.

    may we ask what the rate was?

    I too would like an SAOS 8 year to try side by side with the 8 year WFE i plan to open upon passing state boards next month.

    That ain't the going rate. You got a deal.

    I assumed it was as good a price as I could get since the same store was selling Angel's Envy for $39.

    thats kinda what i was thinking. i got the WFE 8 year last october for $59, and had heard that it has shot up since then, if you can even find it.


    im thinking that may be the only WFE that ever comes in my house again........with WFE's unavailability, price hikes, etc.....combined with the extremely positive reviews Im seeing on SAOS products

    Yeah, for $80 I probably would have still bought one but definitely not two.
