    Re: High West Pioneer!

    Keith has a right to find a whiskey "less than impressive" for whatever reason he wants, doesn't he?

    I take Keith to mean that any fact that could possibly distract him from having to the gall to plop down $149 for one of the most delicious whiskeys he's every drunk is a fact worth dwelling upon.

    That 21 year-old rye is like glittering gold in a bottle. I myself have been tempted to spring for it numerous times (I find it around here for $120-$130), but I have found the strength to resist.

    Sky, I continue to appreciate your wisdom.

    Sure... but it all goes back to the van winkle thing. Who here dislikes VWFRR because Julian and Preston didn't distill it themselves? BT didn't distill Saz 18. Black Maple Hill... &c. I'm sad to see this thread still alive and kicking.

    149 for a 21 year old whiskey is actually not a bad deal at all, unfortunately. I think HW's 18 is much better than the 21- but it's all opinion. Perkins can rectify some damn good whiskey though.
