    Re: Best Tasting Willett (Bourbon and Rye)

    I have another one that I forgot about.
    It is a special selection by Binny's.
    The stats are as follows,

    27 Years Old
    138.6 Proof
    Bottle No 19 of 24
    Distilled: December 5, 1980
    Cooperage: White Oak
    Stored In Warehouse: C
    Rick: NI
    Barrel No: 473

    It seems that Joe AKA Lost Pollito @ Binny's was trying to keep track of all 24 bottles as to where they ended up.

    Hey Joe, you still have that count?

    I know where 3 are.... Scott, Birdman has 1... not sure of the number... like 9 of 24 I think and I have #5 (unopened) and #16 (1/3 gone).

    Tony has one I think.... How many did Binny's hold behind for prosperity... I hope a few.

    Yep. I've got the list on my desk. I think 2 are held back. That was SW juice. Very delicious. I hear we may get some more at some point. Fingers crossed.

    Oscar, I obviously confused the bottle you listed with what I have. I apologize for the delay, but life got in the way....lol. Mine is 7yrs old, but still a Toddy's selection:
    124.6 proof
    Bottle 25/144
    Distilled March 12, 2001
    Warehouse B
    Rick # North 7
    Barrel # 8194

    It still has that heat I remembered. It has a better nose than I remembered with some vanilla, molasses and leather. It is a lighter amber color than the older stuff and the alcohol makes itself more apparent earlier in tasting. It's just not as mellow or sweet, but that's not surprising. It is a very nice pour and considering I paid less than $40 for the bottle I think it was a good buy. I'll save the 16 yr comparison for next weekend. I remember that one bing much sweeter and having a lot of brown sugar flavor to it.

    What number?
    C'mon guys list the numbers, I have #19, what else is out there, and Joe get that list off your desk and enter it here!!!

    But really, it'd be cool it link all 24 bottles to names.
