    Bowman 17yo 147.5 proof. This is one hot whiskey that is unpleasant to even attempt at CS. Water does not seem to be a friend. Will let it air out for a few days but the jury is still out on this one.

    Four Roses Mariage '09
    Jefferson's Presidential 18-year batch 19 (x2)

    I'm hoping batch 19 is one of the better ones...I've heard mixed opinions on different batches.

    Picked up my K&L Willet 21 (the SW single barrel). Also grabbed a Willet 5yr 110 proof rye. First pour of the rye is pretty good. How does this compare to Handy? Willet is only 1 year younger for less than half the price, and I've always passed on Handy.

    I like these young Barrel Proof LDI Ryes...I really do.... But to me, the Handy is way better. And, worth twice as much.

    Picked up 2 WTR101 for the bunker. Don't want to see the supply of this one dry up!

    Not to mention night and day difference on the palate.

    Got three vintage 17 bourbons getting delivered tomorrow. Hopefully they are worth having. Any love for these here?
