BT has never owned Fitzgerald. HH bought it from Diageo at the same time BT picked up Weller. I am really interested in seeing your picture....that would be a nice twist in the Bourbon Time Continuem.
I'm starting to think I must be confused between VSOF and Weller Centennial, but I'll still check anyway.
I picked up a grab bag of 6 different 200ml bottles in preparation for my next VBT notes. I plan to actually blind taste one of these (reach into bag of bottles blindfolded, pour, and put bottle back into bag...then taste as normal...look to see which one is open later) to do my tasting notes. I must say you can get a pretty damn good selection of 200mls here in KY...
2010 Bourbonian of the Year
As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"
I'm no Pappyophile
Which ever one of us is wrong has to drink some VSOF and send a cheers to the other one. Deal?
In the tradition of a blind squirrel occasionally finding a nut, I grabbed the cheesy gold foil WT12 from the store up the street this morning.
The nice little owner lady asked "Are you a collector?"
I said that I wasn't, but my wife may give a different answer to that question.

My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?
Given the choices this morning at Meijer (not exactly a bourbon destination!), I couldn't resist the relative bargain that is Elijah Craig 12 y/o at $19 and change.
Today was a grand day, in that I picked up three bottles of 2007 George T. Stagg and two bottles of Pappy Van Winkle 15/107.
There is no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a couple of drinks of fine bourbon whiskey!
