    JP - I think you'll enjoy FC, I find it to be an excellent value often around $13-16

    I found these yesterdayburb.jpg

    When I asked to see the RR, the store owner said it had been on that shelf for 20 years and it was a fair $30. Still looking for some of the 101 =...[

    Been wanting to explore more of the rye blends, so picked up a bottle of Redeption Rye - on sale for $19.99.
    Also an extra OWA to keep on hand - on sale as well.

    He was lying, or misremembering. That label dates to 2005.

    Right. I believe the 90 proof as in your bottle was released in early 2005. Latest, lated 2004. A sad day in Boubonia, when they replaced the WTRR 10yr 101, with that.

    Stopped by a place called Four Seasons Liquors on Route 9 in Hadley MA.

    They're in a partnership with the much-praised Julio's Liquors of Westborough MA in this thing called "The Loch & K(e)y Society" which is the name on all the special whiskey bottlings.

    I picked up an L&K selected Elmer T. Lee for $28 or so that I didn't get when I was last at Julio's, and found a replacement bottle of the L&K selected Henry McKenna BiB at $33 that I've been enjoying for a few months and has run out at Julio's.

    Yessir, I've had a few pours now and definitely enjoy it! I'm a fan of OGD BIB, but this FC stuff may dethrone it in my rotation, or at least compete with it, due to the $13.99 price tag.

    I get a heavy sweetness up front, quickly overpowered by a heavy rye spice attack and some nice barrel notes as well. Pretty darn impressive for a $14 bottle.

    I went to Go Whisk(e)y Weekend at Julio's Liquors in Westborough MA. On Saturday I was there from 11:00 am to 8:30 PM, Sunday I was there from 1pm to 4pm. I was able to talk to MAster Blenders, Master Distillers, Brand Ambassadors that had been both, and sit in on a bunch of seminars/classes. It was a great experience. I also managed to try a better part of 30+ different types of whisky over 2 glorious days. I ended up with the following selections:

    Signed (By Al Young) gift set of Four Roses Small Batch for a friend.
    Signed bottle of the 4R Small Batch for myself as well.
    Loch & K(e)y Society Jefferson's President's Select 18yr (Peope say this is "Pappy", I don't know about that, but it is damn good juice).
    L&K Bernheim Single Barrel (I know it isn't bourbon but dang if it wasn't outstanding.
    L&K's Elmer T. Lee single barrel

    I also bought some of my favorite scotches and what not that I always keep around the house. Got to take advantage of the 10% off while I can! I also purchased Al Young's book about Four Roses. It was $20.00 and 100% of the proceeds went to the Shriner's.
