    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    Not purchased today but a couple of days ago and I wanted to post a Thank You to Bromike for the heads up on these.

    Its a wonder how a distributer can 'lose' bottles for a while, but I am sure glad they found them!

    The one seems to have a minor leak under the cap that I didn't notice until I got home, so I'll have to open that one first and make sure there is no glass chipping under the lid or anything... Maybe it should get sent to the SB.com Lab for further analysis?

    very nice Christian!

    i did not purchase it today, but through the generosity of a trade with another SB.com member, I received a bottle of the BTAC WLW 05. Will be tasting it shortly...

    1980 Liter Old Taylor (tax stamp) ND juice but 80 proof not 86 did not know that until I got home.

    1980 500ml bottle Old Taylor BIB green tax stamp.

    For you Michigan guys lookin at Ann Arbor Trail and Middlebelt there's a store called Vintage Market. He has 2 bottles of WTRR 101 but he wanted $32 plus tax so I left them.

    Also picked up 2 Jim Beam 7 yr old 80 proof bottles??? Not sure what these are never seen them before.

    I picked up the last three Van Winkle ryes I knew of locally. Will bring at least a pair of them to the Sampler, should anyone be in need. PM me.
    By the way, the same store also has (pending prior sale, of course) three Parker's HCs. I didn't check the proof, but the 127.4 is the only one I've seen, to date, distributed here. Again, PM me if you're heading to Bardstown and can't find it.
    And, should anyone still want a Thedford Reserve ...

    Thanks to the generosity of a fellow sb member, I worked out a trade where I received 2 F05 GTS and a 2005 WLW.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008

    Not today, but this past Monday I picked up one bottle of '07 Handy, one '07 Stagg and a bottle of Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey. I've also arranged through a trade to acquire two more bottles of the '07 Handy

    Here's a pick of Monday's haul.

    Mark,

    I've been meaning to get back to you on the Baby Saz question you asked earlier. I'm still good. I've got one full bottle and three fourths of an oppen bottle.

    It looks like I'll be getting down to Peoria (where I can buy Baby Saz) on a monthly basis. My dog's eye medicine, the Cyclosporin, the vet doesn't like to mail the stuff. But thank you very much for the offer.

    By the way, if you haven't tried the Stranahan's, I recommend you give it a try. It is youngish, but it really grows on you.
