    Yes, yes, I take the same precaution . . . one could swallow that spout.

    The 98 proof must have been sent overseas. That is all we have in Alberta.
    Looked at it the yesterday because of the bottle and origins in PA,
    but reshelved it because I noticed the citrus addition.
    It carries a $40 price tag here.

    Our terrible PA state stores just moved it to close out status. Good idea guys, cut the product where the biggest cluster of rock and rye drinkers are.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    That is a shame. This has become a favorite quick cocktail over a single large cube this time of year especially, and while I think I prefer the 98 proof the 84 proof version, which is the only locally available option, isn't too bad either. Also made a nice and affordable gift for holiday party's.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I picked up a bottle of the 84 proof after a friend gave it a positive comments. I really like the flavors but found it a bit too sweet when poured neat at room temperature, and an ice cube diluted it too much. The freezer remedied both problems! I would probably like the 98 proof better but this is a really good "quick cocktail" when I don't want to pull out the old fashioned accoutrements.

    It's great to see a bottle like this actually taste good, and unfortunate that the rest of the "flavored whisky" labels make it a harder sell because everything else is swill.

    I've been conversing with one of the reps at Cooper Spirits and the reason for moving the Hochstadter's to close out in PA is to get the last of the 98 proof product out of the system. Unfortunately in PA, when you change a product, you have to close it out of the state stores and then re-introduce it. So this summer we should see the 84 proof version. I'm going to go snap up a bunch of the 98 while it's out there and I'll start grabbing the 84 when it starts to appear. I've got to say, the folks at Cooper Spirits have pretty darn good customer service!
