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

    Through the generosity of a fellow SB.com member, I received a box today that contained two bottles of Eagle Rare 101 10 year. Distilled 1981, bottled 1991. Thanks Gus!

    I called last night and they are going to hold a bottle for me. That particular store was sold out but the sales rep believed a couple of the other locations still had some bottles in stock. We'll see.

    I picked up a bottle of Wild Turkey Rye 101.
    I wanted to try this again before the Russell's Reserve Rye came out.
    I've had only three other ryes, Jim Beam, Old Overholt both very bad (IMHO) and Rittenhouse BIB, which was OK.
    I really like the WTR, zesty taste and an excellent balance between the vanilla and spice.

    Well, I didn't buy this, but my parents were in Louisville a week and a half ago for my Dad's Viet Nam Army Unit Reunion (11th Armored Cav. Allons Blackhorse!).

    Per my request, they were able to pick up a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch (I said either small batch or single barrel; either was okay by me). I look forward to giving it a whirl.

    Grabbed another bottle of the FR Rutledge 40th Anniversary. It's now sitting on the shelf among the other single barrels.

    Rittenhouse Rye 100 BIB, based on what I read here about it. Once again, excellent advice - it is fabulous.

    While I didn't purchase this bottle, it was a birthday gift from a fellow co-worker. Remy Martin 1738 Cognac. I've never had Cognac before and don't know anything about this particular variant.
