I finally located a bottle of Old Kentucky Tavern BIB. I have been looking for a bottle for quite some time. A few days ago, thanks to a fellow SB member, I found out that Ohio's Liquor Control Dept. had updated its website. I looked through the bourbon listings and found it on the list. I made a call and found out a store a few miles from my workplace had some. Even though it isn't a dusty, I'm still glad to finally have a bottle!
Found a number of bottles of Old Fitz BIB DSP-KY16 (sorry they are spoken for) and also picked up a bottle of Willett Pot Still. Not a bad day of shopping.
Went shopping today and did something I promised my wife I wouldn't do....buy bourbon. My store isn't open yet and as such I don't have income coming in so therefore, bourbon purchases have been on hold since late last year. I was doing some dusty looking over the last couple of days and today I was struck by bourbon demon. My brother and I walked into a store today and lo and behold what was on the shelf?
2x 2000 Saz 18
1x 2000 ER 17
I had no choice but to purchase both of the Saz 18's and the ER 17. My wife has been somewhat understanding.....
I also found a 1984 Old Overholt, a couple 200's of Early Times KSBW from early 80's, maybe even late 70's (no UPC) and a tax stamped Town Tavern of which I know nothing about.
Greg and I teamed up on this trip. For the rest of the trip, including the rest of a 2000 BTAC collection, luck under Collectibles, or click here.

I love him whose soul squanders itself, who wants no thanks...for he always gives away and does not want to preserve himself.
I go my Very Old St Nick 25yr in today ... I want to open it, but need to kill some bottles first...
