Had a couple of friends bring them back for me.
Another Old Forrester Signature. The first bottle was a surprise to me. At 100 proof at that price point, so very drinkable neat.
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.
Rittenhouse 100 Rye, Michters Straight Rye US1 Single Barrel, Sazerac Rye 6yo, Buffalo Trace, Makers Mark. Next bottle will be Wild Turkey Rye.
Try Noilly Pratt sweet vermouth. Same price much better. I find M&R tannic and bitter.
(The fact that I've not driven through Indiana recently is not indicative of how many times I've done it!..You see, I grew up -- and family remains -- in SW Michigan... -- You have additionally responsibilties now, BOTY)
Puchased a replacement Pappy 20 today, the only no-questions-asked Stitzel-Weller still on shelves. Price was $99.99 and, after a courtesty discount -- which essentially offsets sales tax here -- I wound up paying $98.31 or so. It's simply not worth driving all over the countryside here to find a nominally lower price. This one was less than a mile from home.
Also picked up a 2000 LBV Osborne Port gift set for $17.99 before discount, from which the glasses make outstanding bourbon tasters -- and the Port's not bad, too.
