I recently ordered a three pack of Parker's 10 yr wheated, as I love the stuff... The package arrived and an intitial wtf? until I realized I was looking at three bottles of the first edition 122.6 proof. Hmmm... After opening and tasting one I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping these as it is quite tasty indeed.

Cheers,

RW

They are both keepers. I'm a little surprised that the 122.6 rye is still around for sale.

You need to reorder more to see what you will get.

mea culpa- or; as Rosanne Roseannadanna famously said- 'Never Mind'.

Turns out I misremembered abv and wasn't able to revisit the computer. This shipment is the PHC 2010 wheated 10, but it's 62.1 (124.2 proof) , not the 63.9 (127.8 proof) as I previously had several bottles of. I somehow remembered it as 61 something and that led to the mixup. This 62.1 is quite a different pour than the 63.9 in both appearance and flavor. This also led to a cranial disfunction as to what it was.


apologies all around- next one's on me
