    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Winter/Spring '07

    A friend dropped by and gave me a bottle of FR Single Barrel and a BMH 16. She said it was owed to me for a favor I did some time ago. Darned if I can remember, but I din't want to hurt her feelings and not accept....

    I purchased a bottle of Woodford Reserve batch 211.

    This is my first sample of Woodford Reserve, and I liked it less than I expected, even after reading so many negative reviews here.

    Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon, 89/02. If I'm not mistaken, I believe this is the first bottling of this one.

    While traveling in the Nashville area this week, picked up 2 Ezra B 15's, ER 10yr 101, and a Saz Jr. The Ezra B has turned into one of my favorites. Chock full 'o butterscotch. Pure candy.

    Tim, you've found it all, but thankfully you leave some of the droppings for the rest of us!

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Winter/Spring '07

    Am travelling in Florida and picked EWSB 1997 (from Jim Beam's still that is), Old Whiskey River (only had this once years back and liked the sweetness), Bulleit (looking a little paler in the bottle than I remember, there must be slight variations), and Vintage Hallmark St. James Vatted Malt, 25 years old, only $39.00. The latter is "signed" by Wallace Milroy, the gentleman who used to own famed Soho, London whisky shop Milroy's. A good example of a complex, sherry-oriented dram and what the Scots can do at the upper end of the aging register. Also, it illustrates the great values U.S. liqour stores can offer, in Canada we only start at this price for single malts and they come fairly young and uncomplex. The Vatted Malt 25 has a big plummy sherried taste with good smoke and caramel. I got this in one of the chains, can't recall the name now (I think it had a 6 in it, or 67).

    Looking forward to the EWSB to see if the Beam still does anything different to the series.

    Choice here seems quite limited. I dropped into a few "liquor store cash cheque" places of which a number do not allow access behind a wooden gate, you have to order by brand from the small booth in front. In one such place, I was told they had "Beam, Jack and well bourbon but you won't want that". I could see there more brands than that including an old-looking Dickel but it was too difficult to explain what I was after. There might be better luck in small towns outside the big urban areas, but I won't have time.

    In one sense though I liked what I saw, in that Florida retains the older bourbon tradition Chuck mentioned of an active lower shelf line, I saw lots of Ten High, AA, regular HH, Forester 86, Tom Sims, etc. This is still a market for "bourbon" as opposed to small batch, single barrel and the like.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Winter/Spring '07

    This past Sunday after the ETLee distribution party, I introduced TNbourbon to Party Mart in Louisville after a leisurely drive through Oldham County. At our second stop, at LB, I picked up an Old Charter 10yo 86 to trade with another forum member. As many of you know, OC holds a special place in my memory, as it was a standby pour at the Gun Club in Beloit, Wisconsin during my college days. Today, the family and I will take a drive to Cherry Hill, NJ to meet Jazzhead and complete the trade.
