    I’d be interested too. If we can’t get our own barrel, maybe we can just buy the rest of theirs!

    Now you made me go and pour a WP 15yr Rye. It's so fucking good. I don't have a ton of high end ryes, but this is my favorite I think.

    Ok fine. It’s a WP night. 10 year label, 15 year product. sem has one of these too.

    maybe we should stop putting WP on the bad list and move it to neutral at least. I get that it is pricey, but I do think they are easily one of the top rye producers.

    As everything increases in price, WP looks less ridiculous. Especially as the higher aged distillates become increasingly harder to find. At $70 for 15 years it’s a no brained for a good pick.

    I budget $100 per month to spend on whiskey. It forces me not to overcrowd my 1400sqft house. Doing a flip like this I see as increasing my monthly budget by 50%.

    If I owe anyone bottles, it’s you. If I can get them, I certainly will, but I’m afraid they’re sold out.

    The label says it’s a 10 year product so it’s sold under that label at or close to that labels price. But it’s a barrel pick and WP offered barrels as old as 17 years to be bottled under that 10 year label.

    I prefer regular small batch or single barrel. It’s good but not worth the upcharge to me.

    That Russell’s is a barrel picked by the store, that’s generally a good thing. Let me know how you like it, it’s one of my regular favorite daily drinkers.

    it has a lot of flavor, it's not subtle

    i could see where this is appealing for ppl who drink a lot of bourbon and start to get bored with it and want something that's just has *more* flavor without resorting to gimmicks.

    I mean so theoretically there are single barrel bottles out there already from warehouse c but without the label, am I wrong?

    Theoretically you’re correct. I doubt standard EHT is 10 years since they don’t call it out, so this may be a little older, but if that’s the only difference from the standard stuff and considering last year’s was an 18yr blend of 3 different mash bills, that’s pretty lame

    I'm over the secondary market and the BT stuff. Has become so inflated and allocated that I'm fine just finding normal ass shit at the local store that still tastes good.

    Pears are delicious. Pear brandy is also delicious. Bourbon finished in pear brandy casks must be delicious.

    Redwood Empire Lost Monarch is getting a lot of positive buzz right now. Just tasted it for myself and that’s a real tasty bourye for $35. I’d even say it’s p1 list worthy.

    gotcha, Durham has some nice stores (at least compared to other counties). I go to the one on 55 quite often and the new store on Roxboro is huge.

    We need to up your rye game. Also need to get you at least an antique, possibly CYPB and single barrel but I think they’ve gotten ridiculous.
