    Ah, well put. I was thinking if it was under 4 years it had to have an age statement, but I believe you're correct.

    SAZERAC RYE-6 YR

    Thanks

    I recommend the Sazerac Rye 6 year. A problem is that liquor variety is pretty limited in MI (especially with ryes) and pretty pricey (due to the state liquor taxes, I believe).

    If you have the opportunity, visit Chicago and take advantage of their better variety and prices. (And, if you are ever in MD or Washington, DC, I would make a point of bringing bottles back. Much, much better prices and variety than in MI.)

    I need to correct my post. The Sazerac Rye 6 year here in MI is $26.99 (the State minimum price) This is a pretty good price, and comparable to the price in Chicago, CA, and NY.

    Enjoy
