    What bourbon did you purchase today? (Fall '07)

    Fall is here and summer is past. It's time to renew "What bourbon did you purchase today?"

    I'll get things started. I celebrated autumn equinox with a purchase of some EWSB: 2 bottles of '94 from an eBay seller and 2 bottles of '95 from the shelves of a local liquor store.

    I'll take that as a good sign of things to come.

    I'm very jealous. I really like the EWSB, it's what got me into this great hobby I suppose you could call it. I just received a faxed receipt for 3 bottles of Four Roses 40th, 1 bottle Henry McKenna SB BIB, and 1 bottle OGD 114. All of which are new to me. A friend is picking them up today in Lexington. I really want to get ahold of two of the BTAC, the Stagg and the Weller, when availible.

    I may go find some EWSB around here, a good friend is coming to town this weekend and he loves the bourbons.

    Otherwise, I'm really holding off for the '07 BTAC collection.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? (Fall '07)

    Nothing fancy. In a little liquor store in Seymour, Indiana, today I bought a 750ml bottle of AAA 10 Star from the discount table. I knew it was not the 10 yo, but it was on sale.

    It's an old label: it is the pale yellow of regular AA, and the "10 Star" is on a picture of a medal sticking up from the top of the label, not in the middle of the label. There's a "96" on the bottom of the bottle and the Surgeon General's warning on the neck, so the '96 sounds about right. Is this pre-Buffalo Trace?

    Not purchased from the discount table was a 375ml (maybe 500ml; I didn't look) of JTS Brown BIB for $5. Label said distilled and bottled at DSP-KY 31. Using the knowledge I've gained from SB.com I know that means it was distilled no later than Nov of 1996, that it must be at least 4 yo, and that, with no age statement, it is probably no more than 4 yo.

    I am learning.

    I had a bottle of '88 AA 10 star that I liked quite a bit. BT has been the same since the early 1900's, give or take a few name changes. If that JTS brown is a 500 ml than I woulkd look twice at it for being an oldie. Maybe not too old but a keeper none the less, Bib is a sign of sorts. Just check!

    Is the Fall 05 the 131.8? (I'm too lazy to do a search)
    If it is, it's one of the nicest bourbons I have tasted!

    Cheers
