    Not today but recent purchases include:
    One ETL foil cap
    One Olde Saint Nick Winter Rye (101 proof, I think it is nine years old)
    Four bottles of AAA 10 year old. Cheap Under ten bucks US before tax
    Two bottles of Eagle Rare 101 ten year old.
    One bottle WT Rye.

    For Margaritas:
    One bottle of Cointrue
    One bottle of lime juice
    Herradura silver 100% agave
    Tequila Reseva 1800 Reposado 100% agave

    For Manhattans:
    Angostura bitters
    Hermes orange bitters

    I promised my wife that I wouldn't buy any more this month, but I noticed I am dangerously short of WT Rare Breed...

    I am headed out tomorrow afternoon as we surprise my youngest with a trip to Disneyland. I am driving and hope to stop in at a store here and there and see if I can't come up with a surprise bottle for myself!
    I am pretty bad about stopping and taking breaks on a long drive...now I have another reason besides restroom breaks for the family...Bourbon...another reason to love it!

    First, in a county north of my county of residence, I found a dusty box & bottle of the I.W. Harper 15yo of BHC fame. Second, on the way home after passing into my home county, I found an Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2002. I've read here that both are very good and well respected.

    This week I have been on vacation and went to visit friends. On the way to and fro I stopped at about a dozen liquor stores looking for goodies. The verdict.

    1-750ml Eagle Rare 17 (2000 vintage)
    1-750ml Old Charter 12 (Louisville)
    2-1.75L Old Fitzgerald BIB (DSP-16)
    1-1.75L Old Forester BIB (DSP-414 Early '80s Tax Stamped)
    4-200ml Old Charter 7 (Louisville Late '80s)
    9-200ml Old Grand Dad 86 (National Distillers Tax Stamped)

    The Old Grand Dad 86 are superb and the Old Fitzgerald BIB Stitzel Weller has always been one of my all time favorites. Haven't had time to open the Old Forester BIB yet. It was a buy at only $19.95. The dust was free.

    Todd, since I live a few minutes from Disneyland I can tell you that the Orange County area seems to have fewer finds than LA county, I think the simple fact the OC is in general newer than LA makes it so. In general though I think Ca. is like any other non-control state in that you just never know where you may find a gem... Have a good trip!

    Perfect example; today I bought a Gold Wax Hirsch and a Weller Centennial Louisville label (SW). Pretty darn nice finds after a bad day at work...

    I bought a bottle of lot b yesterday and poured some just now. Paid 45.99 a little high but I was able to get it locally. This is right up there with the PVWFR 20 year old and both are worth the price. Now I just need the 15 year old, already have the rye and thats a little too much for me being a newb, but the Van Winkle bourbons are great.

    If it was fresh, it was probably Bernheim whiskey. I'm glad to hear you liked it. I have many bottles of Lot B but all are Stitzel-Weller. I'll probably have to pick up a Bernheim to compare them.

    When I was at the Bourbonfest in Bardstown, I came home with a little over a case of this wonderful libation (I emptied the shelf). He said at that time they had just started receiving it in stock again (in Louisville).
