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

    Against my better judgment a couple of bottles of Hirsch 16 - and based upon too many recommendations to count a bottle of Parkers 122.6.

    Today, one bottle of Weller 7/107 (paper label) and a bottle of Fundador Jerez brandy, plus a proper brandy snifter.

    The Fundador is inexpensive ($20 for the bottle), and I opened it almost immediately to give it a try. Mmmmmmmm, good stuff. It's interesting to contrast it against a heavily sherried single-malt Scotch like Aberlour A'Bunadh - they both have that strong sherry note, but the brandy is clearly brandy and the whisky is clearly whisky.

    The Weller, of course, has been a favorite of mine from the first taste...
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    I was in the mood for a Bourbon Mist or 2 or 3 and EW makes the best.
    I never heard of Bourbon Mist, but looked it up on the web and it said, put ice in a glass, add 3.5oz of Ten High and then add more ice. Yes, maybe EW Black is a cut above Ten High. I have never tried Ten High yet. Have you tried EW White?

    I use crushed ice cubes for my Bourbon Mist but only a jigger of bourbon, this is how I learned of it.

    I have never heard of EW White Label BIB and I just recently became aware of EW Green Label.
    The next time I am down south I will try to get both.

    We were out with some friends last night and ended up at a small pub in Georgetown Indiana.

    I was somewhat dissapointed to find that they only had two Bourbons in stock!

    So after I finished off their bottle of Makers... the other bottle was Very Old Barton which I had never had before. I really enjoyed it but didnt think to ask which proof this was. I was impressed with it even though I understand it is a bottom shelf offering.

    Think I'll run out and grab a bottle for the house!

    Interesting, I also grabbed a 122.6 yesterday and am pretty surprised to hear the first offering made it to Cali. I picked up a 127.4 in St Louis.

    Picked up some Sazerac Rye. I had never tried a good rye before. Wow, what a nice tasting pour. My old stand by JD keeps getting pushed farther back into the cabinet!

    Both are very, very good choices....

    Keep trying things that are recommended here and Jack will get kicked to the curb like last weeks trash.
