    Found a 1.75L of Heaven Hill 86 Proof yesterday. Haven't seen this before as it was a very dusty bottle from the mid-90's. Cost was only $16.50.

    Passed on a Wild Turkey 12 year old Gold Foil, for now, because I didn't have the enough cash on me and stupid me left the credit cards at home. I'll go back and get it tomorrow. It was $55.00, which is fair.

    I also learned that Old Forester, unlike some other brands that offer different proofs, has a different profile for the 100 proof (now re-branded as Old Forester Signature). In other words, while most brands just dilute the same whiskey to different levels to get the different proofs, Old Forester 86 proof and Old Forester Signature (100 proof) are different whiskeys in terms of barrel selection and profile.
    I havent cracked the Forester. It is marked BIB though. Thats good info to know about the different profiles. I just thought they cut to proof down to 86. I wonder if anyone else does that?

    I should have said the 100 proof OF is no longer BIB. I think they dropped it five or six years ago.

    Interesting. I had hoped to acquire the Saz Jr. on my trip to Louisville. Liquor Barn had a space for it on the shelf, but the shelf was bare. Wonder what gives?

    I just bought and tried Old Charter Proprietors Reserve for the first time. This is a definite keeper. Very nice.

    Wild Turkey RR 101, 2 bottles. Just for grins added 2 ETL's.

    Chris's description of the current inventory at BevMo is spot on. No Antique Collection selections, and that is a surprise.

    Realized I was out of Maker's Mark, and I always like to have it around. Although, I don't go to it often, it was the first bourbon I really drank with any regularity and I continue to enjoy it very much. So, I on occasion, I just like to go back to mama.

    Okay guys, due to the reports of a lack of availability of Saz Jr., I went and picked up a few to bring to the KBF. Trades of comparable value accepted. I left a few more on the shelf, so PM me as I can pick up more, if needed. I figure there is no big loss if I get stuck with it, as I really like it.
