    How do you all come up with so much of the BTAC?


    So, I take it you love the Saz the best. Am I right?

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

    Last night I picked up most of the WLW still left from previous years in S. FL. 8 bottles, a mix of 05's and 06's. Needless to say, I'm set for awhile.

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

    I picked up (2) new Handy's today. I also found (2) W.L. Weller Special Reserve (Louisville) 94" on the bottoms. They had one more but it will wait for next time. Now I have 3 Louisville bottles and 2 Frankfort. I read the old posts in the search but did not see a side by side?

    Is one better than the other?

    I was able to land those because of a source in the VA ABC I've been developing for quite some time now, and it finally paid off. It's a long story.

    As for whether I like the Saz 18 best - I know you were asking Tony but I loaded up on it both because I like it and it's normally near impossible to get. I frankly don't know which BTAC I like best. It depends on the mood I'm in. I do lean towards rye mashbills, but I absolutely loved the '06 WLW. I like old whiskeys (e.g., Saz 18), but the Handy was mind-blowing. And of course, who doesn't love GTS? ER is the only one I'm not sure is worth the money, but that's me. My brother loves it.

    I think I'm going to be able to get my hands on several bottles of Handy next week. I can't wait...

    Mark, what's your take on the '07 WLW compared to the '06?

    I haven't tried the '06 but the '07 to me isn't worth the price. Don't get me wrong, it's good but I'd rather save $35+ and buy a bottle of Weller Antique. Just curious on your take.


    Regarding the ER, I really like it, the '07 version anyway. I haven't had any prior ER's.

    I haven't opened it yet. I came close tonight, but indulged in some ORVW 10yr instead. When I do I'll certainly post my impressions, but I think the '06 is going to be hard to beat.

    Thanks to a generous and considerate member of this board, I am the proud owner of the 1989 EWSB, extending my collection so that it spans '89-'97, and the '02 OFBB. I'm going to bunker them for now unless I come up with a duplicate, or just break down under the pressure...
