    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Winter'07/'08

    Grabbed a Vintage 17 Year and a couple of bottles of EW1783. I've never had either. I have had the EW Black Label and wasn't terribly impressed but I figured the 1783 deserved a chance after getting a 96 pt. rating from Wine Enthusiast.

    Local... a Stagg and Weller '07 BTAC. Left the Saz and the ER.

    Merry Christmas to me.

    Just as a "One man's opinion..." intellectual exercise, let me arrange those in my preferential order:

    Rittenhouse BIB
    OGD BIB
    Old Forester 86
    EWSB (I assume 1997)
    OGD 114
    EW 1783
    VSOF 12
    Old Fitz
    Henry McKenna
    JTS Brown BIB

    Mind you, I'm assuming current editions. I've had mind-blowing J.T.S. Brown (late-'60s) and Heavenly Heaven Hill (McKenna BIB 10yo SB). Not a 'mixer' in the bunch, maybe.

    I didn't try all of these yesterday but one I did try and was pretty bad was the Old Fitz. Just simple and very sweet and with a really powerful smell of pecans. And the pecan flavor was a little odd -- not enticing like pie!

    Picked up Elijah Craig 12. It was from a store where, it seems, they've been sitting on the shelf for nearly two years. In a box, too, which I've never seen.

    I was going to start a thread about this but figured I'd just ask here:

    Who's started bunkering EC12, now that there's less than a year left of the original HH?

    Can you give any more details..
    Was it Prime (if so, was it 80 or 86 proof?), or was it Bottled-in-Bond (if so, what DSP numbers did it have?)? And what date numbers are imprinted into the bottom of the bottle?
    Just curious, thanks.

    I really like some of the older bottlings (even of the lower proof 'Prime'). But I will admit that while I do enjoy the taste, some of it can be very simple tasting and not complex at all, but (to my taste) that is not a bad thing.

    I just received a GTS 07 compliments of a fellow SB'er. Much thanks!

    I also picked up an OGD BIB for a little rebarreling experiment.

    WLW and Stagg '07. Had hoped to get them from Santa, but had to take care of this myself.
