    Oh, OK Hollywood, that's good, I like to hear nice things about my latest find! I haven't tried it yet. I like to save special bottles for special occasions, so I think I'll bring the JR 15 and a bottle of ORVW 15 from the bunker along when I go on my fishing vacation in late August. My brother, who I have made a bourbon convert in the past couple of years, and I, will have fun comparing and consuming them, hopefully along with some fresh fluke, porgies, blues, stripers, or whatever!

    I just don't understand people like your girlfriend. My wife is the same way, but still, the more I know ahead of time the better. Oh, don't tell the punch line first, but still.

    Last night I picked up..
    1) Blanton's (Warehouse H)
    2) 1792 Ridgemont Reserve
    3) Old Forester 86

    I'll go to another area, and give a little spill on the Blanton's...I was a little disappointed!......

    Almost picked up several large 1.75L bottles of Ancient Ancient Age that I found at an ABC store near the convention center (on lunch break from the bar exam), but then saw they were 10 Star and not 10 year. Major bummer - got my hopes up and then dashed them just as quickly.

    Who stole the cork from my breakfast?

    At least you found out before you bought them. I bought a couple of bottles of AAA 10 year, opened one of them, drank my way through the bottle thinking, "This is okay, but absolutely nothing special". Was bunkering the unopened bottle when I realized that the fine print read "star" not "year". I was at least gratified that my taster was telling true while my eye was lying.

    Picked up a couple of early nineties Louisville bottles of Weller Special Reserve 7 yr. Eager to give it a try.

    This weekend I finally got a couple bottles from the David Nicholson 1843 stash I found at a liquor store by my dad's house. This is 7 year old 100 proof Stitzel-Weller whiskey---for $14 a bottle! They had three left: Northender Liquors, Springfield, Illinois.

    I think that the Northender bought some odds and ends at a deep discount from a distributor cleaning out the warehouse, because they also had some Very Old Barton (86 proof), and they were selling it for under $9 a bottle. Curiously, this is less than what they were charging for Ten High.

    Just snagged 3 bottles of Evan Williams 1994 Single Barrel from some backstreet liquor store here...counting my blessings and enjoying a drop of it as I speak!
