    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    While out looking for Weller Centennial I picked up a bottle of
    Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
    Bottled 11-02-06
    Barrel No 137
    Warehouse F
    Rick No 49
    dark wood top

    This is the first I have since I got one that was bottled 2-07-07 light wood top last October that I was not very fond of.
    Sipping today's purchase now, ahh this is the bird that I love.

    I picked up George Dickel Original Tennessee Whisky No. 12.

    Super. I like it! I picked up DALMORE Single Highland Mal 12 Years Scotch also.

    Side by side: I like Dickel better. My opinion: As far as value goes (best bang for your buck): Dickel $20 over Dalmore $30

    Current bourbon status:

    I have 3 bourbons: Old Grand Dad, Buffalo Trace and todays Dickels. I say Buffalo Trace is best value. VERY similar to Dickel but a bit more spicer! (Dickel is considered Tennessee and not bourbon.....so not sure if that fits this question)

    Dickel isn't bourbon but most of us here like it and welcome it.

    Another dozen Weller Centennials. The 13 yr is about gone. Bourbon fans, not scalpers have been buying it up left and right.

    Nice Spun, wish my wife would let me get a couple pallets myself (she already thinks I've lost it) so I'll just have to stick with my 12 . What a great bourbon.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    Well, I went out to a couple of places today to pick up some new bourbons to try. Decided on, 1.Wellers 12 year old, 2.1792 Ridgemont Reserve, and 3.Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel. Also snagged a bottle of Forty Creek Canadian Whiskey and a mini bottle of Bulleit Bourbon for my collection. Now I have to decide which one to try tonight. Any suggestions? Looking forward to your replies. Joe

    I went out looking for a bottle of Kentucky Spirit and ended up empty handed, although the store owner was happy to hear that it is available in Ohio so he's ordering a case (and I've got two bottles earmarked). I had to settle for some new tasting glasses from Crate and Barrel.

    When you get that Kentucky Spirit let us know what you think.
