nothing fancy, but good stuff.  I'm surprised, the Basil 10 holding its own against the Dickel BIB 13.  I now have 4 Basil 10, 5 Basil toast.  Dickel? I bought 60 (5 cases, 13 different lot #'s) but killed at least a case by now.

Picked up FAE-02 other day.  1st visit seemed little hot, but makers runs that way.  Was sipping with lots of others.  I plan to sit down with it early in evening next day or 2 and see what it really is.

Never thought i’d get  another WLW.  Yesterday started out slow but ended nicely.

I had a little running around to do today. Got home and checked my emails. There was one from Binny’s with their latest sales and deals. 🤬 I had just driven by Binny’s when I was out and about. Oh well. 🙄  My wife got home, and just as she got home, the mailman dropped off the mail. My wife grabbed the mail and came in the house. As she started going through the mail, she handed me an ad. It was a flyer from Binny’s. It was the same as the email I received. I figured it had to be a sign. Off to Binny’s we went. 😃 I bought two bottle of MM @ $19.99 each, with a bonus of two bottle of Maraschino Cherries @ 1¢ each. I also purchased two bottles of BT Bourbon Cream @ $17.99 each, along with two six packs of Freddie’s Root Beer for 1¢ each. Not a bad days retirement. 😝  Oh, and the MM’s were dipped by my gal in Loretto. 😘

Thanks! No man.. this was just great timing. Had literally hoped for just a W12 that morning.  Definitely a day to remember.

Local grocery store happened to be having great sales on some items.  I picked up WT 101 @ $16.99. 🙂

 

I got to talk to my younger brother.  He's the cigar guy, just starting to get interested in Bourbon.  After our discussions, he said he got: Old Forester 100, Four Roses SB, and WT 101.

 

And, how do I get Binny's to open a store in Greenwood.

I needed a few empty bottle boxes so I stopped by a TW. Had to buy SOMETHING while there so giving the "new and improved" version a try. To me it tastes like a mix of HH6/90 and EC after an ice cube started to melt. Pretty good for $16.

I had some of this last night.  To me, I prefer this over the EW BiB.  Drinks way deeper (for lack of a better word) that what may be expected from a $16 bourbon.

Agree.  Had a pretty "deep" and rich nose to it that surprised me right off the bat.

Made the same stop today- three bottles of MM & cherries. Some of the cherries are destined for friends, and probably a bottle of the MM, too. I grabbed a couple of the Cubs blue-dipped bottles to be different.

What’s the scoop on the Rebel SiB CS’s? Look to be 4 to 5 years old so I suppose Luxco’s distillate? Any feedback appreciated.

ive been doing some blending over the past few months.   very good success with 2/3 wt 101 and 1/3 dickel 12.    yesterday did a 4/5 overholdtt rye and and 1/5 JD Honey and let it sit over night.   almost a maple and brown sugar oatmeal finish on this mix.   the nose has a smell like a pipe blend called 'rum runner'....awesome.   two fingers and one small ice cube.  very tasty little mixture at reasonable cost.

I know what you mean. We've all been there.  You're going down the aisle, not even looking, and they just cry out - take me...take me...take me.
