    Another good one falls.... Pappy 20. I still have 3 in the bunker. I snapped them up 6 months ago because they were only $70 ea. They go for about 110+ now around here.

    Indy's post got me to wondering...It's obvious he didn't like the WRMC 4 Grain. I didn't care for it and I haven't really seen much good written about it. Is there anyone out there who actually liked this stuff?

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group Summer '09

    I had to bid farewell last night to a bottle of Rare Breed and an older tax-stamped bottle of Rittenhouse Rye (80 proof but absolutely full of flavor). I need to thin out the herd, so I'll be killing a few more bottles (ETL, Michter's Bourbon, EC12 and an Early Times bottled in 1976) in the next few days before opening any new ones. That 30+ year old bottle of Early Times is light years better than the current product--very nice stuff.

    That sounds great.

    Was it an Owensboro or Bardstown? I've had really good Barton and Medley versions. When that Medley juice grew up it became Sazerac and VW rye and Barton rye is hopefully coming soon to an Antique Collection near you (I'm hoping for a Fleischmann's Barrel Proof Rye to stand beside the Handy).

    I actually have two bottles of the older Rittenhouse--one sadly now empty. They say "Continental Distilling Co., Owensboro, KY" on them. If I'm interpreting this correctly, the number on the bottom of the bottle seems to indicate that it's from 1980. When I bought them they were sitting next to a bottle of JW Dant BIB dated 1989, and all three were $11, so I was happy about that.

    Mmmm...
    Medley Rye. The original Saz Jr., in a way.

    Well John Hansell (of Malt Advocate) certainly liked it (at least the second release).
