    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Summer '07

    Not today, but my latest purchase (last week) was Rittenhouse BIB.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Summer '07

    After calling ahead, I braved ridiculous road construction to drive to deep South Miami to pick up 3 William Larue Wellers and an Eagle Rare 17. Have never had either, and looking forward to trying.

    I purchased a bottle of Wild Turkey Rare Breed 108.2 proof Batch WT-03RB today for my small but growing bunker.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Summer '07

    Today I picked up the following three bottles:

    Van Winkle Special Reserve Lot "B", Lawrenceburg, $32.99.
    Old Rip Van Winkle 15 year, $29.99.
    Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 year, $69.99.

    The store actually had two of each, but the proprieter stated he was keeping one of each for himself as he knew they were all discontinued and/or rare bottlings.
    I plan on going back in a week or so to see if I can't 'change his mind' with cash in hand...

    Yesterday's haul: a Sam's (10yo) bottle of Baby Saz, a Forty Creek Three Grain, and a bottle of Punt e Mes to replace the one I recently killed.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Summer '07

    I'd be interested in your comments on the 3 Grain, especially if it is the more recent issue (the color is darkish red/amber, the earlier ones were the same blend but fairly light in color).

    I find this whisky quite unique in its tangy interpretation of the rye experience.

    I like it with a dash of JDSB added, the additional proportion of straight whiskey and charred flavors really pick it up (add depth) but don't change the fundamental taste if you don't add too much. You could add any good quality high proof straight whiskey.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Summer '07

    If you had your choice between 3 bottles of the Michter's 10yo Rye (KBD) or 1 bottle of Rittenhouse 21yo Rye, which would you choose?
