    Passed up 2 VWFRR. They were asking $99 per bottle. Too steep imo. The store owner claimed he was charging that price to lessen the likelihood that it would be resold on eBay. Too many of the stores in Michigan are being picked over and the product is not making it in the hands of local enthusiasts. Quite a shame.

    Picked up a Vintage Rye 21 last night, but left the 23 on the shelf. Also saw a Vintage Bourbon 21, but had my heart set on the rye.

    Ever have the 23? Picked one up recently, in fact, you might have seen it when you were in Naperville.

    The 21 sounds tasty.

    Where in Naperville? I got to Binnys(bought a cask Redbreast, but forget what was behind glass) and a few smaller stores, but missed Malloys as it was weeknights and I always seemed to get there at about 9:10. Last time in Naperville I got some Ritt BIB and some Lost Abbeys at malloys.

    I haven't had the 23, but the 21 is very, very good.

    It was the Binny's in Naperville. I remembered it being there at christmas, and was happy to still still it there last weekend. I knew you were going to be there and was worried that it might not be there again.

    Hopefully, the 23 will pan out to be as nice as the 21 sounds from you.

    Thanks

    Passed up a Wild Turkey Rare Breed. I never would have though this a big deal before as I thought Wild Turkey was a "high Rye" mashbill. Now, since I find it is not, I am more tempted... but I should probably try the standard before investing in the barrel proof... it just looks so tempting though sitting there at barrel strength.

    And how is the 23? The 21 is one of my favorite whiskies.

    It's been posted here by several people and I've heard others say as well that it is too woody tasting. If you like heavy wood flavor then you would probably love it. I'm a huge fan of the 21yr rye but apparently the 2 extra years in the barrel added a significant amount of wood flavor. That said I've never tried it and have always passed on the 23 due to hearing this from multiple people.

    Yes, I've read those, as well, but I occasionally come across positive reviews. I can get the 23 in my area, albeit for quite a markup, so I'm always interested to hear what people think.
