    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Summer 2014

    Negotiated on the price of a Michter's 20yr bourbon (M20H216) and it came home with me. While expensive and an NDP, this stuff is liquid gold. Honestly hard for me to find a better pour in recent memory.

    Wish I could negotiate a price I could make myself pay for one of those!

    I did run across a few bottles of old Potrero Rye today, and brought one home.

    My wallet certainly wasn't happy, but my palate is. Palate trumps wallet this round.

    Nice to see 13H's still around. They come but don't last long here even at 400 clams.

    You would if you knew the markup. But any 'rare' bottle sells itself these days, hence my previous comment. But it sure never hurts to try!!

    Not sure whether to congratulate you, be jealous or call you a sucker. So rather than be conflicted, I will just say cheers to enjoying your whiskey and if you like it, then it doesn't matter if it was $20, $200 or $2000. Nor does it matter what anyone else thinks including yours truly.

    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Summer 2014

    I finally found some ETL (not comm) for $35. Not a bad price given the store. First I've seen in Colorado since September or October. Odd finding it in this spot as all of the other stores that tend to get the new/limited releases first are still telling me that it still hasn't been released here. There's either some tomfoolery going on or I stumbled across some old forgotten bottles (although the shop owner commented that they had just gotten them in and felt lucky to get them at all). I grabbed 2 and left 3.

    Sorry too new to realize. It was Ridgemont, its been hitting my sweet spot lately and this store puts out 1 bottle of all his harder to find in Pa bourbons. Ask to buy what he has...thats all I have. But we can view stocks online so since its close to my town I just go back every few days and re-up my stored bourbon. Really wish I was into bourbon earlier to taste the years past of the fruity nose I get from 04 EWSB.
