What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today, Spring 2019

Recommended Posts

jwperry

I found a store that had the Heaven Hill taster multi pack for $32(previous best price I've seen was $49) so I picked it up. I've only had 2/5 of the options, so I've been interested.
If anything I can use the tubes to store samples for future reference once consumed.

Dang it!  How'd I miss this one when we were there a couple of weeks ago.  It wasn't in the Gift Shop was it???????   😪

 

Update:  Just read the fine print on the front - "2017 Edition".  Never mind - I'll just be happy with my FRSiB OESQ Gift Shop special.   😊

Yeah Yeah Yeah - rub it in.  As I told you when you stopped by, I finished off my last OESQ late last year (sigh).  STOP rubbing it in.B) 

Guess I'll just have to make do with some other 4R "somebody" dropped off with me. hahaha.  Yesterday, I picked up an AA just for fun (as it was on sale) - it's going in the freezer for yard work days - along with 4 VOB 100s.  Today, somebody (NOT the 4R SmB gifter) had cleared the shelves of the seven VOBs I left yesterday.  Bummer.

Where are you located. I haven’t heard of any deliveries of OFBIB yet. 

I'm in New Hampshire, but this would not have been a local purchase. I have friends, family and stores all over the country that I make purchases from. I checked with my contact today and it wasn't on the truck yesterday, but will hopefully be on it tomorrow. I will check in with them on Tuesday and see if it made it in.

Well, if you're a really, really really good boy to Miss "P" , there might be an FRSiB OESQ in your Bardstown stocking next April.  Maybe.   I didn't know you had your cult card up to date, honest!  😊

Went into a LS I check out every month or so (but rarely buy there), & these two were sitting on the shelf. Not sure where they suddenly appeared ftom, circa Austin Nichols, looks like '14.

Found this at the local bottle store here in GA. Took a chance as I had zero information on the typical price range and if it was any good. Found out I was lucky on the price and we will see how it tastes at a later date.

These are both from the same barrel? I know they got 2 different 15y barrels in. Didn't know which one to pick. Have you tried it? Did you try the other barrel?

In Memphis for work, and in between meetings in a not great part of town I stopped in a store that had a few semi-dusties, and sprung the $20 for what I think is a pre-2013 OF Sig. I  just want a couple of pours to remember what it tastes like, but I fly out tomorrow and don't want to check a bag. So if any Memphis area SBer wants the bottle minus a couple of pours, PM me and I can either meet up or leave it at my Germantown area hotel 's front desk for you.

Coworker went to the Derby this weekend. I’d given her a list of ones I thought may be interesting that I can’t get here. She came back today with this.

I tried this while I was teaching at Moonshine University and staying at the Brown hotel in Louisville last week. Very nice pour, hope you enjoy!

Yes, I got 2 from the 6th floor barrell. It's good. I haven't tried the other.

Now that is a deal, I've enthusiastically picked off a few at $34.99 at $19.99 I'd buy ever last damn one!

would you consider it good enough to warrant paying more than the regular 9yr bottles cost? I also try to not support that store but if the flavor of these is a must have then I may cave in on this one.

It's been quite a long time since Ive had the stock KC SiB9yr, so i honestly couldn't tell you how they compare. If you enjoy big oaky bourbons you should get one. It's not something I could drink all the time, as sometimes oaky bourbons dont hit the spot.

Stocking up on some Smooth Ambler 7y bourbon, bought 3 bottles for €39/bottle. 

Just opened one because I was out of it, very solid. Not as tasty as the 11y single barrel that I’m enjoying now though 😉 

 

Cheers!

 

Will.

Picked up another EHTSmB for the bunker. It’s hard for me to pass these up around $40 given the state of how other bourbons I don’t like as much seem to be jumping up in price every few months.
