    EC 12 for $12.99
    Dickel #12 -$22
    Sazerac 18 2007(2) - $59
    Ardbeg 10 - $45


    You should like the Dickle #12 a little better, I know I sure did!

I am pretty excited about kicking back with it tonight. I also found another bottle of Rittenhouse Rye about a week ago. The store that usually carries that in my area was out . I love a good glass of the Rittenhouse then finishing off with the Evan Williams. I have been stuck with the black label for some time so am pretty excited about the white label. I think I am going to pick up a bottle of either WT101 or JB Black this weekend. I have had the WT before and really enjoyed it but have not tried the JB as of yet, so I'll go with the smaller bottle. Still in search of the Old Granddad in my area. I do tend to lead towards the rye'd whiskeys more, I love the bite they have.

    I would get the WT again and skip the jb black... as i think the wt is much better. I even think the EW black is better then jb black.....

    Yep, A local higher end liquor store has a few bottles of it.
    As he removed the cork from the bottle of bourbon, he threw it across the room and said, "we ain't gonna need that no more".

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    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.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    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.
