Any thoughts on this one? I went to a liquor store grand opening a couple weeks ago and everybody bum rushed the whiskey section when the doors opened for the first time looking for anything rare, this was the only bottle that got gobbled up. I could have grabbed the last one but while I was looking at the label somebody reached over me and took it. I think the price was $95, I didn't want to drop that much on something I hadn't heard of before and didn't have time to look it up, so I went with a handle of eagle rare instead for half the price (after some discounts)

Ben, I've had it twice from two different batches, and loved it like crazy both times. I haven't really liked any other "finished" ryes, but this one is different to me. I'll update it when I crack this one. I had a discount to use, so got the bottle for a little over $70.

I'll have to think of something else to try soon. My first bottle of bourbon is just about empty already.

Ray, you've taken to it quickly. :-)

Clay, scotch is welcome in this thread, just not in my glass. Irish whiskey is welcome here as well, and also has an open invitation to my glass. :-)

Not even a little. Not scotch's fault, it's 17 year old me on New Year's Eve's fault. :-) :-) :-)

It's not that interesting, Clay, but I'll indulge you when I'm less tired if you like. Just typical high school idiocy. :-) :-)

Oh yeah, James, thought I was cool at 16 drinking "candy whiskey". :-)

I've had plenty of bad experiences with all sorts of liquids, but SoCo wins for the only one I won't be ever drinking again :-)

Finished off the EC Small Batch and picked up a bottle of Woodford Reserve and I've got my brother in law snagging some Weller Reserve and 107 for me.

Nice! I keep a couple bottles of SR around, but I wish I could find some 107, got one bottle last year but gave it away as a christmas gift :-)

Found a bottle of 107 at the grocery store by Klugs' house at Shack this year. Only bottle there, nd the guy said he put it on the shelf 5 minutes earlier. Same kinda luck for me with the first Blanton's. Now, if only I could stumble into some Weller FP or some George Stagg. :-)

One of the local big stores had a single barrel release yesterday afternoon, people got there when they opened at 8 and waited 8 hours, I got there at 3:15 and waited 45 minutes, we both ended up with the same bottle of Weller Antique 107 (although the people a few behind us did not). I don't know if the "Single Barrel Select" is any different than the normal bottles - I think not and they probably just bought a barrel worth of the regular 107 - but I had a few glasses of it when I got home and it is delicious :-)

They also had bottles of 1792 full proof and tomorrow will be selling off their barrel of Blanton's, but I don't think I'll be able to make it to that one :-)
