    Man, I bet there are some real gems up that way. I've only visited NYC once in early '01, and it looked like a treasure trove of nooks and crannies. I'd love to revisit. Nice finds there, by the way.

    I picked up an old bottle of Old Forester BIB 100 proof, and two bottles of Old Charter Proprieter's Reserve 13 year old.

    I purchased 7 bottles of Pappy 15 for 34 bucks a piece. Last week I purchased 6 bottles of Pappy 20 for 62 bucks a piece. I hope that all my 15 yr is SW whiskey .

    There is no indicator as to when these were produced, or is there?????

    No, but the store manager should be able to tell you when they were entered into stock at that store, from which you generally can draw appropriate inferences. Pappy 15 doesn't stay on the shelves long in most places.

    First time posting here, yes a newbie to SB, but not to the joys of bourbon. Happy to say that I am awaiting a shipment of BTAC-Stagg, Saz and Weller. I gave the names to a relative in the hope that they might be able to find them and hit the jackpot! Based on what they said was on the bottle of GTS, they may be '05, but won't know for sure until they get here.
    I've been reading the posts here and learning a great deal. Read about how great BTAC is supposed to be and started the search, didn't think I'd be able to find any, so I feel fortunate. Can't wait to try them. Thanks to all for helping make my wallet lighter.

    Went hunting and found 3 Old Charter Proprietors Reserves (Heritage Collection) and 2 Old Fitzgerald BIB 1.75 DSP-16.

    Good hunt.

    Found a WTKS that was bottled in 2000 this weekend. Not only does it have the pewter top but the label is different than the one on the current bottling.

    Tonight, a friend of mine brought me a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel from a Kentucky business trip for me. I'm stoked!

    I also snagged a bottle of WTRR 101 in Austin today. Last one on the shelf. I couldn't just leave it there - it looked so lonely.
