    The one I have doesn’t state the years aged. I wonder how many it is.

    But I was more so making the point that Peerless Rye is good and the Peerless Bourbon is meh

    Yes, I agree. Peerless has only been around for a little over four years or thereabouts since they reopened. Their whiskey is very young.

    Made a run to TW with the GF and convinced her I should buy more stuff because, you know, the quarantine. Ended up with Elijah Gregg Rye (it's found its way to SC), Woodford double oaked, and a Glenmorangie Quinta Rubanan 14 yr...along with a 4 pack of beer and 2 12 packs of beer samplers.

    Made Old Fashioneds all night and feeling solid. Anyone with a solid recipe, please do share. Mine were fine but it was a 1st attempt so any and help is appreciated.

    I have the 109.5 and the 111.3 small batch. Neither stands out to me. I haven't opened my single barrel yet.

    My 110.3 was good but not worth the price. Take that batch and add 4-6 years in the barrel and it’ll probably have some great character.

    Does anyone have any strong feelings on Makers 46? Thinking of grabbing a bottle to go with some RR10, Michters rye, and 4RSBS to take me through the quarantine, but have never had it.

    Just wanted to grab a wheated bottle i havent tried before....could also grab some larceny?

    Makers 46 is good. I’ve only had one bottle but I liked it much more than regular makers. Larceny is a fine cheap bottle. My wife thought it was smooth. I’m not a huge wheater but I like both.

    Anyone have a bottle of William Larue Weller they would be willing to part with?

    Our COO is leaving in a month or so and that's one of his white whale bourbons.

    This, except I'll just use this board. I've already seen enough of these pressers to know that I can't do it. Had to do the same with the shit Kemp just put out.

    Luckily, I think Kemp was vague enough with the shelter in place to cover me.

    What's the range? Or PM me if you want. AFAIK, price isn't a big concern... until I learn otherwise from the big man.

    yeah - I just peaked at the new BX and it appears 7-800 is the going rate depending on year.
