The taxes are so high in order to make up for the lost revenue that the state previously generated by controlling the distribution and sale of all liquor.

    First I've ever heard of that claim.

    Nothing, crazy, but was deciding between a bottle of EWSB 2012 and Bernheim Wheat... went with the EWSB.

    Saw a bulleit 10 year for the first time today but had to pass at $48. Not sure how high that is since this is my first sighting but at twice the price of the regular Bulleit, it'd have to be wildly better/different to justify the purchase.

    2X CEHT Single Barrel BIB (this is the one that's unfiltered, right?)
    2X CEHT Rye

    Passed on some I.W. Harper from 83' mainly due to its low proof (80), I want to do some research about the I.W. Harper stuff and whether there may be higher proof bottlings out there to find. The store I was in had a few 750ml bottles of I.W. Harper so I will probably go back to get one.

    I would prefer the 100 proof but the 80 is no slouch if the price is reasonable. Harper from that time was a very pleasant whisky that downplayed the rye element in the mashbill while accenting the caramel/butterscotch notes. If you do choose to buy one of those 80s I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    The BHC IWH at 80 proof is very good delightful bourbon. It won't overwhelm you senses but it will sure please them.

    I actually just recently found a 1986 200ml bottle of IW Harper at 86 proof.
