    I only drink neat or over a whiskey rock and it's my daily drinker. I enjoy the hell out of it.

    I scored some good stuff yesterday. RHF for $50 and (2) Michter's Barrell Strength Rye for $79.99 ea. A Weller SR to replace an empty for $26.99, (2) Willett FR Rye 4 year for $59.99 ea. Then this morning hit the jackpot and got a 2017 FR LE for $124.99. There was one sitting on the website and at 7:30am I was just lucky enough to check.

    Nice! I wish Ohio did it the same way, I never got a shot at any of that stuff here, other than Weller SR. About to check the local store for some Antique.

    Correction, the FR was $124.99 :)

    The PA site crashed horribly yesterday during the release. I am lucky I was able to get anything, as many people had stuff in their cart and then couldn't buy it. Unfortunately the RHF was limited to 1 per person.

    It's one of my favorites to have during the week because I know I can limit myself to one pour. Potent hooch.

    It can always be worse. My $90 Jefferson’s ocean purchase was a giant meh. Not listening to that friends recommends for a while again.

    It’s the 16 release. Nothing special, and it should be for that price point imo. I’ll spend $110 all day long on Mitchers 10 year, but there are a lot of 40-50 bottles I like better than this one at 90

    Regular Jefferson or Jeffersons Reserve are both worth buying. Ocean is just Reserve with a shtick that costs you $40.

    That’s a little high for that bottle, but it’s still a 14yr BIB so not a bad value.

    FWIW, it tastes like flintstone vitamins. Whether that’s good or bad depends on if you like those I suppose. Don’t think I’ll be buying another one.

    I read MSRP was $36, so a $10 markup for a store that has been good to me didn’t feel like too much of a stretch.

    Just had a glass of this actually. Thought it was really solid, but oddly enough, barely any of the Rum notes came through. If I hadn’t read that it was Rum Cask finished, I would’ve thought it was just a really nice straight bourbon. Some orange and charred sugar on the nose, but that basically disappeared on the palate. I thought it was pretty good actually, it was just different than I was expecting

    Tried it last night. Very smooth and easy to drink, probably due to the vanilla and caramel taste. You can definitely taste the sweetness of the rum casks, but not too much.

    I believe the last thing I read was BT moved into a new bottling facility which had delayed it and weller full proof, likely into August.
