    Do yourself a favor and get a bottle of Wild Turkey Rye and a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel....should be aright around $60 depending on local pricing.

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    I don't suppose you would remember seeing any Old Rip Van Winkle products there? My wife is going down next week and I need to make a shopping list....

    Yep, they had ORVW, and Lot B too. They were more expensive than the OGD, which is why I went with the OGD. Lee's Discount has a pretty good selection!

    Ah well, I got the WT Rye, but unfortunately they didn't have any 4 roses.

    I opened each bottle last night and had a dram of each...

    I must say, I REALLY like the OGD114...and the Rittenhouse Rye was damn good...especially for the price! Hell, all four selections were excellent, and I thank everyone once again for helping me to stock up on the Ryes and Bourbons! Now I gotta see how long I can make it all last before I gotta go back to Vegas on another Whiskey run!

    My wife works for the airlines, so I fly for free...this is how a broke as a joke Hawaiian managed to spend a little bit of $$$ to broaden my Whiskey-palate horizons!

    Mahalo folks!

They also had WTRB in single shots for 3.00 a piece, so I grabbed a few of those to sneak into my cup on the plane ride back home...since Hawaiian airlines only serves Jack Daniels as it's "bourbon."
    You nailed almost exactly what I was going to recommend. Had you been in a different area I would have suggested EW BiB and AAA 10 year, but those are very region specific offerings. OGD114 is a must have high proofer on a budget. I personally prefer WT Rye to Ritt, but am about the only one I think and was going to suggest Weller Antique 107 as a great high proof wheater on the cheap. BT is a great all around bourbon. And by the way, I love those WTRB singles, I used to always carry two with me anytime I was on a plane, but haven't found them anywhere here in Oregon.

    Flying for free is better than internet and shipping Being broke sucks.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.
