    Re: What Bourbon did you purchase today? Summer 2014

    Looks like I'm not alone adding a Michter's 20 year to the bar. Congrats Tylermke! Mine is an early wedding present, barrel 13H216. Then stopped by my local store where the just put out some CEHT Barrel Proof.

    Congrats on the upcoming nuptials! Are you opening the bottle for the wedding?

    This isn't my first rodeo with Michter's 20yr. I've also got the sister barrel to 13H216, which is 13H217. I actually tried the 13H217 first, which is what turned me onto it in the first place.

    I'll admit when the bottles first came out in 2012, I thought people who bought into the hype, marketing, etc. were idiots. Looks like I turned into one of those idiots.

    Thank you Tylermke. The 20 year is going to be saved for another day. I'll be opening a FR 2013 LE SmB instead.

    I've tried the 20 year once at a bar, barrel 13H215 and enjoyed it quite a bit. Looking forward to the day I open my bottle.

    Been on a long dry spell but got a few things in the last while. My sister got me two half bottles of Dry Fly. One bourbon 101 and a cask strength wheat. Also got a bottle of Lot 40 rye. Haven't tried any of them but hope to have a pour in the next day or two.

    While on vacation last week, I found Sazerac Rye (non-BTAC) for the first time and bought a bottle. The store also had a couple bottles of Johnny Drum Private Stock, which I enjoy and is tough to find in my area. So I got one to add to the bunker...

    Yesterday, I was making a stop just to check out my usual place and they had one bottle of VOB BIB with the 6 year age statement, so for $13 that went home with me.

    Today I will check out my other location since a softball game will have me in that part of town. Maybe I'll find something good.

    Hey, watch the finger pointing, buddy! lol

    Private barrel or off the shelf?

    Saw a different PB the other day for $37, but walked passed it. At least I'm more conscious of the stuff, now.

    Off the shelf and only $41.99. My dealers aren't large enough for private barrels. Did pass Rhetoric @ $119.99. Makes the bottles that I paid $99.99 taste better already, and yes I know most of you pay way less. It is what it is.

    Baker's after a suggestion by Squire. Haven't tasted this one in over a year as well.

    Found this guy on the shelf, no idea of how old the bottle is, but I'm guessing early 90s/late 80s. Hopefully someone with a little more "experience" can chime in. For 12 bucks, it will be fun to have a try.
