View Full Version : Rare Perfection Bourbon

Hi Everybody,

Has anyone else heard of this bourbon? I saw a bottle of Rare Perfection Rye in the store, but didn't get it as I had never heard of it. Later the bartender at my favorite place asked me if I had tried the Rare Perfection Bourbon. I said I hadn't and he showed be a magazine article. It was in Japanese, the type was too small and the light wasn't too good so I couldn't really read it. I did pick out some age statements and prices. The prices were rather high and the ages were all over ten years. I didn't see any proofs. He told me that they were made by Jim Beam. He also told me that it was cheap now. Maybe an introductory price, I don't know.

I plan on getting the Rye I saw as soon as I can get over to the store I saw it in.

Just want to keep this active. I guess I can assume that no reply means that no one has heard of it, but I want to be sure.

Thanks Drew.

Thanks Drew. It certainly makes sense that it is from you. I was just repeating what I had heard. I will get one as soon as possible. Your Olde St Nick Winter Rye is certainly top shelf! As is the rest of the Olde St Nick line.

Looks very nice, Drew.

Hi Drew,
I got the Rare Perfection Rye 11 yo 86 proof today. A little pricer than your Olde St Nick Winter Rye 101 proof so it has some tough competion to beat as I really like the Winter Rye. I will post my impressions in a new thread in Other American Whiskey when I get around to opening it. It will be soon, I am sure.

Damm, I got all excited for a minute thatBeam were releasing something new (and it might make it to the Australian market)

Looks like another one to keep an eye out for the next time I do an international order from Binnys (unless Drew is planning on shipping Downunder soon http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/bigeyes.gif)

My favorite bar said that they will be getting in some of the Rare Perfection 18 yo bourbon tomorrow so I will be able to post on that sometime soon. I am three sips into the Rye and can say that it is very nice.
