    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2008

    Well, I walked into the store to buy a $12.99 bottle of Rittenhouse Rye BIB 100. Instead they had it for $17.99. So I walked out with a $16.00 bottle of WT Rye and a $74.99 bottle of GTS 144.8 proof. Last December that was $54.99. These prices are jumping up faster than gas! Ya I know I sound like a whiner but 33%(roughly right) price increases is kinda crazy. Perhaps this is just an adjustment of my reality?? also I am very happy with the stag and the turk.

    Saz Jr. The other one is looking a bit sparse at the moment.

    Manhattans in my future. Any suggestions on a "summer" version?

    I bought two bottles of Virginia Gentleman 90 today; if I like this bourbon (I have no doubt that I will!) I will go back and buy a couple more tomorrow for the long Fourth of July weekend.

    A new bottle of Russell's Reserve is waiting for me on the counter.

    Well, my first foray into hunting dusties and stuff that I can't get at home produced this:

    A 375 of Old Forester Bonded distilled DSP KY354/bottled DSP KY414

    A 750 of Old Charter 10 with an 88076 UPC

    A 750 of Eagle Rare 10/101 with the black label, bottled by Old Prentice in New Orleans

    Sadly, I had to pass on a Wild Turkey 12 in a tube as my vacation bourbon budget has disappeared. I didn't have the 57 bucks to drop on it.

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

    Ohmygosh! Did that tube contain the cheesy gold foil? If it did, run back and get it, and trade or sell with me!!!

    Today I received a bottle of the FR120th, thanks to a nice SB member who sent it my way!

    Also, in my hunting that I like to do while I'm out and about, I found a Louisville VSOF 12yo BHC, woohoo! I've never had one of these, I've had a Frankfork but never a Louisville bottling of this.

    Um...you sure on that one G? VSOF has never left Louisville, to my knowledge.

    But congrats just the same! That is a wonderful bourbon. Very Special is an apt title.
