Ok so I went back and looked but mine was the 1998 vintage but 10 year aged so bottled in 2008.
It was delicious.
Hm can you share a picture? I haven’t seen that one
Not my pic but this was it exactly right down to the Cask No:
And you probably haven't seen it because I bought it in 2010 in Barbados and then stored it away for years before I finally opened it. I believe 1998 was among their first distillations.
That is awesome and probably delicious
I actually saw one of those in store somewhere around here but since I'm on a spending freeze
I think it was the total wine in Houston
A store in Atlanta got in a new store pick of OWA and they’re charging $79.99 AND requiring you to buy a bottle of Wheatley vodka... but the most depressing part is that a localish bourbon group I’m in had an entire thread of folks defending the store and saying the price is fair based on “current market conditions”.
It’s a bit high without the Wheatley but possibly acceptable. With Wheatley it’s a no
That’s what I said. Require the separate purchase and charge retail, or charge markup and don’t make me buy a separate bottle. Instead it’s a 60% freaking markup AND a bottle requirement and folks are fine with it. Full tater
I actually don't hate wheatley
Fuck those tourists! They need to get their own hootch.
How'd you like that Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye?
Says the guy I shipped 2 bottles of Weller SR from PA to
And it's GREATLY appreciated!
Haven’t opened it yet. From the reviews I’ve read though, I’m setting my expectations low. Seems to be more of a novelty bourbon.
I buy single shots of wild turkey honey
WP10 was very solid, but we didn't feel it was far and away better than several very good Rye's we had tasted before.
Having said that, Dovetail lived up to the hype. Was DELICIOUS
Glad to hear it! Welcome to the Dovetail bandwagon, it’s a great place to be
I have a chance to buy an Elijah Craig 18 year & 23 year for $600 for the pair. Thoughts?
Whoa. I saw a lot of the 18 year last November and got 3 or 4 for $99.99. That one may be worth waiting on. I don’t know how much the 23 year usually runs.
Definitely have some thoughts. That looks to be about double retail. Are these bourbons you want to sip on, or just add to your collection and bust out for some special occasion? Have you had either? Personally, I haven't had them and wouldn't drop that much on bourbons I haven't had (that aren't named Pappy), especially because once you age bourbon that long, sometimes it can be an acquired taste.
I should probably defer to someone who has tried these
I’ve tried them both. Hard fucking pass.
$199.99 is what they charge at the distillery for 18 but I think it can had for $149.99 pretty regularly. 23 retails for $299.99 I believe.
Upon second thought, the 18 year ECs I grabbed were 124.99. I’ve never seen a 23 year but my expert (friend of mine) said the 23 year is rare af, too oaky, and isn’t as good as the 18 year. Subjective opinion of course.
What are you guys paying for EHT small batch?
Picked up a bottle of 1792 just to be nice to my shop. Im certain they’re going to give me first crack at their Pappy shipment now.
I have an unopened 23. Don’t have an 18.
1792 ain't bad. Full proof is great
Figured I didn’t have a mixing bourbon, couldn’t be too bad for Old Fashions.
Try it neat first. Might surprise you
I like Bulleit in mine. 1792 would be solid too.
Also, someone give me a recommendation for a rye. I’ve never had a taste for them.
I tried a few Whistlepigs that had way too much heat for my liking. Kind of burned me on ryes.
Old Forester Rye for a cheap option that's a good introduction
I've been big on Rittenhouse which retails for $25 here in Oregon. Prefer a rye in my manhattans and I think it is either 90 or 100, need something higher than 80 imo.
You can have them shipped to your front door on secondary sites for a little cheaper. Hard pass at that price
Rittenhouse is great as it is 100 proof. For old fashioneds I love Turkey 101 rye but it doesn't taste right in traditional rye drinks like sazeracs.
It's expensive but Mastersons Rye is delicious.
I'll have to try that. I really enjoy Pikesville and High West Rendezvous on the higher end as well.
I had a bottle of this and finally got around to having another glass of it. I had one before you posted this and I was thinking while it wasn't my favorite it wasn't that bad. I had it again tonight and I have to think you somehow got a bad bottle. It has a little spice, but I'm a fan of the flavor. I can't see a bourbon drinker trying what I'm drinking and saying it should be poured out.
Just opened my bottle of Michter’s Rye and liked it. It is only 85 proof though so it doesn’t have any burn.
The bottle I have is super shitty. Maybe I got a skunk bottle, but I won’t be buying it again to confirm.
