    Char No. 4

    A new bourbon and Southern food restaurant has just opened in Brooklyn, NY, Char No. 4 (great name). The reviews I read are very positive. Here is the bourbon and rye list, note the interesting Japanese export items - and the brass needed for some of them. On the other hand, bourbons like EC 18 are a bargain!

    I know the Dickel No. 8 is currently unavailable, but it will be again before too long. I think I'd wait rather than buy it there.

    Some "interesting" pricing. First column is 1 oz taste and 2nd is 2 oz pour.
    Great selection nonetheless!

    That is a stunning selection of American whiskies.

    Indeed. Maybe the most of any U.S. restaurant or bar, certainly up there!

    Re: Char No. 4

    I'm inclined to think that the prices are intended to keep some things from selling at all, so they can say they have such and such bottlings...however I find ti odd that they didn't jack up the price of some out of production stuff, like make the earlier Saz18 higher than the current...

    I also find it unforgivable that they bothered to get in AA and VOB, but don't bother to tell the proof or age of those...similar with Stagg-no proof...and what ORVW is it?

    I'd have to go visit a place like this, even if it was just to pick the owners' brain to try to figure out his thought process behind his pricing scheme.

    The location, type of food (Southern), and the extensive selection of American whiskies, gets me to wonderin' if LeNell is involved in some way.

    Re: Char No. 4

    A duanting list of whisky. First time I have seen the listing separated by Wheat/Rye bourbons.

    Did I miss the food menu or is it not in that link?

    Thanks Gary.

    There was enough Dickel No. 8 in the stores in Myrtle Beach this past July to float an aircraft carrier. If I had know that someone believed New Yorkers would pay 50 bucks an ounce for it, I would have picked up a handle or two to sell.

    Another missed opportunity.
