    Which issue of Malt Advocate are you referring to?
    Has anyone got the First Quarter 2008 issue?
    I don't and I am a subscriber.

    Opps, sorry, I am off topic.

    I purchased two 50 ml bottles of WTRB for the ride home today.
    Nothing quite like breaking the law.

    There are a lot people here that love ORVW 10/107, including myself. I haven't had the 90 proof nor will I try it but the 107 proof is great. Definitely pick it up.

    Didn't purchase it today, but I received a package from Tony (ACDetroit) today, and I was like a kid in a candy store.
    First off there was a Distiller's Masterpiece 18yo and 20yo. I must say they look better in the flesh!
    Then there was a 375mL WT Honey liqueur I was chasing.
    Then Tony threw in a gift of an 07 Thomas H Handy Rye. Tony you are the man!
    I really appreciate your help in getting these bottles, and the THH, my sincere thanks!

    I just bought the ORVW 90 for $20 cause they didn't have the 107 and thought I'd try it. It has a good carmel nose and light carmel flavor. Nothing remarkably good or bad. I'd give it a 90 score. I like Buffalo Trace better and it's $5 cheaper.

    Going out to dinner w/ 3 other couples including 2 other bourbon drinkers (and Pappy fans,too) Sat night via limo to Joe's Stone Crab. Bought a Pappy 20 today for the ride. Hopefully, we can convince man #4 to join us.
    Women will drink Mumm DVX Sparkling, one we found on our last Napa trip.

    The ORVW I bought was the 107 proof (10 yr old). I paid $30.00. Seemed high for a ten year old, but it is hard to find any Winkle here this time of year. Looking forward to sipping it.

    OGD 114.
    WT Rye.

    If I ever run out of either, shoot me and let my wife collect insurance.

    I'm stocking my bunker. I have loads of dusties, and have decided to gather a few extra bottles of some favorites. Some big financial changes are looming, but I have the money now to lay in store a handful each of some true must-haves. The above more than fit that description.
