    I've seen both liters and handles advertised on various websites in the past!

    Re: Find It If You Can.

    My Dad goes out to the OshKosh airshow every august and a few years back I had him grab me a couple 1.75's at a store in that town. $15 a piece. At the time I talked to the WI distributor and was told it only came in plastic 1.75's. It is very distinctive and not bad. I like it. Like Mellow Corn, a must for your whiskey education. Reminds me strongly of bazooka bubble gum. I brought a bottle down to the gazebo the last time I was there, probably a year or 2 back. Still have some in the bunker

    Hello Joe. Was it Trigs? 1.75 or Liters?

    Re: Find It If You Can.

    I've looked around (northern, central, western) WI and haven't found any. I'm really curious, even moreso the more I look and of course read posts here, to try the stuff.

    Re: Find It If You Can.

    When I worked in WI I drank it regularly. It had a juicy fruit gum taste to me. I only ever saw it in handles. Another rye I have only sen up there was stephen foster. It was really a good young rye. Same price range. I think heaven hill makes it. Lot of rye fans there I guess. It is also the only place I have seen 1.75 of jb rye. The store I shopped at really went through it also. It is a big cheap brandy and rum state too.
