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

    Hope those 6 PVW 20's last you a while, unless you're having a party and feeling generous. I went through almost 2 bottles at a party in January. I also get a hint of vanilla in it. It's a favorite around here.

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

    Went to the store to grab another bottle of Weller Antique but wound up coming home with a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye BIB instead. I figured it was time to expand my American whiskey horizons a bit. A good deal at only $13; most noticeable to me is the cinnamon in the nose and taste.

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

    Today I got off work early, so I decided to take a detour on the way home to check some liquor stores that I hadn't checked since before my recently aquired bourbon obsession.

    At one store I found and bought two Pappy Van Winkle 15yo's, an ORVW 15/107, an ORVW 10/107, and an ORVW 'Very Special Stock' 10/90.4. The prices were fair to begin with, but I haggled a 10% discount for buying them all which made it a good deal.

    I'd never seen nor heard of the ORVWVSS so I had to pick it up. Tonight I did a search here and found this thread started by Doubleblank:

    http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ead.php?t=4703

    It's exactly as Randy described in the above thread (no front label, etc.), except it was distilled in late 1992 instead of 1994. Oh, and it wasn't in a red bag either. The store owner said they sent it to him by mistake when he had ordered some other VW 10yo.

    And I just told myself I was gonna hold off buying any more for awhile.

    Buffalo Trace is finally availabe here in Albuquerque, so I picked up a bottle today. I was pretty pleased to see it.

    Both of those are fine choices at a great pricepoint. I found the Weller Antique for $15 a bottle the other day...cheapest I've paid so far.

    Definitely, the Weller Antique is one of my favorites. $15 is a good deal, the cheapest I've seen this bottle for is $19.50. Not a lot of stores carry it but most around here that do have it priced a little under $25. It's crazy how much the prices can vary even on these mid-shelf bottles, I'd still pay $25 for the Weller Antique if I had to though.

    I opened up a bottle yesterday and the same thought struck me, although my thought was a tad more expensive than yours. I was thinking $30 would neither surprise nor dissuade me. (Don't tell BT, though).

    This week, I picked up another bottle of Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve.
    I'm stocking up while they are in plentiful supply here....

    Replaced the recently departed OGD 114 and EWSB 1997.

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

    With all the new SB'ers here in Houston cleaning off the shelves of SW whiskey, I went and emptied a local store of those one liter Weller Antique 107's from Louisville. They had been there awhile, so it was time.

    Hey Gus, here's a pic of how that VW Special Stock 90.4 proof bottles look when you get the personalized labels done.
