Now I have no excuse.
So I got my bottles from Binny's and gave this a try Friday night. Have to admit, I really like it. Have to agree with the comments so far. Definitely get that cinnamon red hot taste and some nice rye spice as well. It is a very enjoyable bourbon.
It looks like it will be quite difficult (and expensive) for me to get a bottle here in Philadelphia. I hope one of the whiskey bars here has it for me to try. Although it only looks like one place has it listed, and I am not sure what year/vintage.
The more I drink this stuff the more I like it. I think it may top any of the Van Winkle products I have. I need to bunker at least one more so I won't feel bad drinking the whole bottle. I'm surprised it doesn't disappear of the shelves as fast as the BTAC and anything Van Winkle.
Going to finish the night with a pour of this fine bourbon...I'm glad a have a number of these bunkered for the future! :)
Man, I can't get any of the specialty FR offerings here in NH. I ragged on 'em hard for nearly two years and we finally got FR1B here but I don't think I have it in me to undertake another unrelenting email campaign. Looks like a phone call to Binny's or Julio's may be in order.
Cheers, ya lucky bastids!!
I picked up another one of these in Houston for a very good price of $75
