    As for the whiskey. I like it better than Ritt BiB in a side by side, but haven't compared to Handy or a WTR101 yet

    Just kicked open my 6 year tonight and like it much more then the Ritt BIB and thought it blew the WTR101 away in a side by side I also love the nose and minty finish

    Plenty of 5 year left in Atlanta, but I have yet to spot a 6 year (and I've been looking).

    I have a bottle of 3 yr old 115 proof that I like better than my bottle of Handy.

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    I opened a 5 year, 110 proof last week that was pretty austere for only being 5 years old. Much less of the sugary sweetness that I found in the 4 year old that I bought earlier.

    I'm going to give it a few weeks of air time, I think-- a lot of times this overly drying aspect evens out with time.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
