    Glad to hear you got your hands on one, Michael. I still have yet to crack my bottle open. I'm thinking of opening it for a fun tasting with the HW21, and Ritt 23.

    Willett 4yr. a nice bold change of pace from my usual wheated bourbon selections lately.

    OK, I am interested in this Hirsch 22 now, since I've seen a bottle in the wilds at the dear price of $200+. I take it it's good. What's in it? Search on this forum brought up lots of info about older releases, but not so much on this one.

    There is not a "new" release of Hirsch 22, the bottles are from 2005/06... And I believe it is rye from Bernheim which is where vintage 21/23 and VWFRR comes from

    I do believe it is from the same stock as a component of VWFRR. I tasted some last week and it was delicious stuff. $200+ is A LOT to ask. I would only ever consider that if I happened to be flush and didn't already spend the money on something else.

    For that amount of money I don't want to have to guess it's provenance. The face the NDP isn't saying says a lot.

    Didn't realize the release was that old. What was the original MSRP?

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Autumn 2012

    In all the threads I have read the price ranges from $110-$150

    And to get the thread back on track I am doing my best to polish off the last few pours of my baby Saz

    Prices I've seen around here are in the $125 range

    this reminds me that I need to pick up some more of the 22 that I passed up a week or so ago at a local store
