    I agree! I lucked into some bottles of the 2000 at the local Costco and stashed them in the bunker. At a little more than $20 a bottle, they are an exceptional value.

    I'm a big BT fan, but I've been branching out a bit lately and have really been impressed with some of the offerings from HH.

    I just picked up these two as well. I have the 23 cracked and it is quite good, very different from the V21. The Ritt I will save for a while, as I have so many open now I don't have room left on the bar.

    If you open the Ritt21 let us know what you think-

    Cheers,

    I was beginning to think there was no such thing as a true dusty around here, but it turns out I was just focused on the wrong thing. I always looked for 750ml dusties before, but decided I had better chances with smaller bottles that get overlooked behind the counter. Today I proved that theory correct.

    I picked up 6 bottles of Old Fitzgerald BIB from DSP-KY-16 and 2 bottles of JW Dant distilled/bottled by DSP-KY-2/16. I'm looking forward to these.

    Not much of a wheater fan, but similar JW dant's were a big hit at an informal tasting. Good finds!

    Nice finds! I've scored some similar mid-90s OF BIBs. They're very good. Not quite as good as the early 80s glut stuff, but very nice.

    The OFs have bottom bottle dates of 1992. The JW Dant bottles also have 1992 on the bottom.
