Well tonight I picked up 2 bottles; Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel and Old Weller Antique 107. As I write this I'm sampling the Elmer T. Lee and it is very nice. Very aromatic and with a great flavor; slightly sweet and with some great background flavors.
I live in Columbus, OH. My wife and I both had today off work because of Presidents' Day (a first for us). I agreed to take her to Cincinnati and spend the day with her shopping. My 'reward' for going was talking her into driving across the river into Kentucky to go to a liquor store. I told her I wanted to see what was available that we can't get in Ohio.
We went to a place called the Party Source. It was a great place with a large selection of about every liquor that I could tell. The bourbon selection was large. I was actually a little overwhelmed. My idea was correct, there were many bottles we don't have in OH at our liquor store. I saw VOB, Willets, Hancock, Whiskey River, Henry McKenna.... I don't know what all.
I had about $50 with me and I was able to get these two bottles for that. I looked at several single barrel, cask strength bottles but any one of those would have taken all my money. In general, all the prices looked cheaper than those at home. Some by several dollars. I could go on but it's time to sign off. In addition to getting at least one great new bottle (I'll try the Old Weller tomorrow) I learned a great new place to shop when I get the chance to splurge.
