What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today, Summer 2019

Recommended Posts

It could be. Actually, I was surprised there was a cork. This is also s single Barrel as opposed to a small batch.

I picked up two fabulous store picks this weekend: Weller Antique 107 and a Knob Creek Rye. Both are as good as it gets.

Bought these and more today (ER10 and Blanton's L&K picks). Roomies from April in Bardstown "Joe" and "Jeff" will be very happy I hope!   🤗

Got the call on the OWA pick today and picked up a couple other things while there. And...a cork!

Interestingly, the quite recent barrel selected version of OWA that I just opened a couple days ago is the metal screw cap; NOT a cork!   And, it's BRAND-Damned NEW!   
Inconsistency reigns!    Maybe the private picks run through a different bottling line?  I bet that's it.

Something is going on with the cork/cap situation at BT. The last bottle of BT I opened that was purchased in March has a synthetic cork. Never had a BT product with a synthetic cork.

Screw, synthetic, cork. If it affects the contents, I'm concerned.  If not....cheers!

Always wanted to try that Nikka. I can never decide if I love that bottle design or hate it, leaning towards love.

That Nikki is one of the best values around - glad it’s in the states now

Grabbed a couple new ones. Guess I boarded the hype with Bardstown. I’ve heard “complex”, but it initially comes off as more “conflicting” to me. As it got some air, it seemed to level out. We’ll see how the bottle matured since being opened. Haven’t had a RY10, yet.

I stumbled across a RHF today at retail. It was very unexpected but happy to have lucked into it.

Wow! I didn’t think the regular retail price was still that low in any area.

I guess the name PRICE DROP was already taken. At least I was able to secure it for MSRP, these suckers were sure flying fast.

Yes, but that was back in April. :) Anxious for you to try it.

Decided to check in on a spot I hadn’t frequented lately. There was one lonely Blantons so I took it home.

I think it was $45 when it dropped here earlier this year.

I’ve never seen it at that price around here. Even when you could find it fairly regularly on the shelves four or five years ago, it was between $55 and $60. The last few years it’s been between $70 and $80 at stores that don’t mark it up much if they mark it up at all. Broken case and premium charges by the distributors have probably pushed the price up more than anything else.

Pic of the stave selection?

Now that I'm venturing around more and more, I'm finding more MMPS in the wild. I've really grown to love them. So far, this is my favorite.

I've been looking for a MMPS or MMCS. They did finally have the MMPS locally a couple weeks ago. Of course at a time when I didn't have $80 handy. Hopefully it's still there. 

 

Until then, there's a MM and a BT in the cabinet whispering sweet nothings to me.
