    Just Got Back From The Liquor Store

    I dug way down into the piggy bank as the bunker was getting low and off I went to restock. Had a list of bourbons that one would have to mortgage the farm to purchase and I grabbed me a big cart and through the aisles I went!! I got to thinking about all those fine bourbons and it suddenly came to me - the ones I truly like was not the high dollar ones - so I grabbed me two cases of Buffalo Trace (the 1.75 Liter), two cases of AAA (the 1.75 Liter), three cases of Heaven Hill 10 YO BB, and one case of VOB BB (1.75 Liter) and on the way out grabbed a bottle of Russell's Reserve, just for a treat, and one bottle of 1792 and to the check-out counter I go ----My wife passes out ----so I buy a lotto ticket in hopes for a quick return. Life is good and here is a toast to all of you and a special toast to my friend, Bettye Jo .

    Cheers,
    Marvin

    ...two cases of AAA (the 1.75 Liter)...
    Does Ohio sell the "10 Star" or 10 Year?

    Congrats on the bunker resupply! It's a great feeling having backup like that!

    I thought I heard a ChaChing at Heaven Hill, Bartons and Buffalo Trace. You have the right idea Marvin, I have thought about putting together my drinking stash out of 1.75s. Life IS Grand!

    Re: Just Got Back From The Liquor Store

    Ohio has the Ten Star, what I am talking about is the AAA 10 YO that is purchased in Kentucky. I buy all my bourbon in Kentucky, since I am from Cincinnati Kentucky . Just kidding about Cincinnati, KY, but I do buy all my bourbon in KY since Ohio has very little to offer.

    Cheers,
    Marvin

    OK, Marvin! The only one you bought that I have tried is the Russell's Reserve. Great choice. Please let us know what you buy in April.

    Heres my question, do you own a bar, do a lot of entertaining or will that just last like 10 years?

    Marvin....which liquor store in N.Ky has the best selection ?...I have been to Corknbottle and Party Source which I assume is where you got your haul but are there any other ones you like...there must be 20 in Covington alone. My guess is your bill at the checkout was at least $1400 bucks...how close am I?
