    I drank both last night and rare breed wins hands down. My brain is mush from yard work and bourbon so not able to add nuance here but will try and do it tomorrow.

    Total Wine went up by that much here - the other 2 big retailers around here are still at about 30-31

    I'm normally pretty good about keeping my weekday drinking to a minimum. But now that I work from home I just stare at the bottles and often find myself pouring one most evenings. Just can't help it.

    OK I was able to pick one up for $55 today. I'll PM you. Story of the day is red. Got the new Peerless release which comes in at 111.3 proof.

    I think so, but I am not exactly sure what i spent on the Peerless as it wasn't labeled and I didn't ask for a receipt. I also purchased 12 bottles of proseco for the wife. That sounds about right though as my total was about $330 or so.

    What is Tannat?

    Also, not a big fan of Peerless Bourbon. Remind me to come back in 5 years. It is a step above moonshine, IMO.

    Grape from southern France and Uruguay (I think). I’m intrigued on what flavors the whiskey picks up from that barrel

    I keep reading that as “tannerite.”

    But I guess that’s just the jawja talk’n.

    Upon some Juggsian research, fuck this guy and fuck this bottle.

    Drink Wild Turkey. Tamland out.

    I feel like Goldilocks and the three bourbons tonight...

    Poured the new Peerless - This bourbon is too young...
    Poured the EC23 - This bourbon is too old...

    Just cracked open a Michter's Toasted Barrel Bourbon from a few years ago - This bourbon is just right!

    I liked my peerless but is was a different batch. my only negative was it did need more age. I thought it had good flavor but I’m not buying it at that price again.

    I loved the first batch of peerless I got and then bought 4 more bottles at total wine when I found it a month or two later and it just wasn't the same.

    it is not good. Please pocket $80 and buy a bottle of ogd114 instead.

    The peerless I have is the 109 proof. I thought it was ok but not worth the price tag. The rye is delicious so I’m surprised there’s that gap in difference.

    Rye aging is different than bourbon. While 4 year is minimum for bourbon, most bourbons can really use at least 7 or 8. Rye doesn't need the same amount of time.
