    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2008

    We are 9 days into summer so I thought I'd kick off this new thread.

    I picked up some Evan Williams with the 7 year old age statement, 2 750ml and 2 375ml today and a pre Heaven Hill fire Evan Williams Single barrel.

    I also got a current Evan Williams to do a side-by-side taste.
    And since I was out I got the always reliable Wild Turkey 101.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2008

    I bought FR 120th....Called around and Liquor Barn, Party Mart, Party Outlet, Old Town and Liquor World are all out and don't expect more. Found it while looking for another bourbon in a small neighborhood store in Frankfort Ave/Brownsboro Road area.

    Bottle & barrel numbers are posted in the 4 Roses thread.

    Picked up a very dusty bottle of Very Special Old Fitz. I swear this has a very similar profile to the PVW15 and 20... just a little more alcohol rasp, not as smooth as they are.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    She didn't notice, and I didn't push the matter.

    Nice grab Gus! I'm drinking some Centennial right now! 13 yr old Julio's bottle! That Louisville should give this one a run for the money! I've had several, all good one of them bought killed me! Could not keep away from it and it lasted less than a week!

    To fulfill requests from home, I picked up a Stagg and a Sazerac 18 today. I think I'm keeping the store in business this week.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    A bottle Buffalo Trace hitched a ride in my truck a week or so ago.
    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".
