    I picked these two up this weekend as well, without the signatures. This two seem to be harder to come by. Especially the PVWFR 15.

    I love those Rare Perfection and Old Man Winter bottles, they are pretty classy looking.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    Picked up WT101 last Friday. As a true beginer, I thought I'd compare it against my existing collection: JB White and Basil Hayden.

    JB White: the opposite of smooth (but drinkable)
    BH: Smooth, but a little bland
    WT101: Nice taste, but strong (I preferred a few ice cubes to mellow it)

    The next night, I made a couple Manhattan's with the WT101 for some company and myself. We all agreed the WT101 was too strong, and threw off the balance of the drink. At this point, I prefer the JB White for a Manhattan.

    They are that indeed. I am hoping that they taste as classy as the look.

    Took some tax money and did what the Gov hops... I spent it.. on all the 25 yr bourbon's I could find. One of these days when I get down to 10-12 open bottles, I am going to open then for a tasting...

    While out shopping this past weekend, I finally ran across some OGD 114 in my area! I had already had my mind set on the WT 101 so I passed on the OGD this week. When the WT is gone, OGD will be mine! I have heard it was high rye, which I like and am looking forward to enjoying it soon!

    If you can locate some Rittenhouse Rye in your area, that is the best stuff for making a Manhattan. If you cannot find Rittenhouse, try Fighting Cock(a bit on the hot side) or Old Grand Dad, anything with a high Rye content. Just don't go by way of a Canadian Whiskey to get the rye flavor, it's not there.

    Four bottles of Weller Antique, since it's apparently going to be scarce for a while.
