    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    Thanks for the link! They have Sazerac Rye listed under rye special orders; maybe we can get them to make the new Stagg available when it comes out.

    The one time I actually did a "special order" was when I got 2 bottles of Hirsch 16yo--the fellow who helped me basically said they can order just about any spirits as long as you'll buy a whole case. If I'm not mistaken, Stagg comes in a whopping case of THREE BOTTLES, so it may not be too difficult!

    Unless they consider a 'case' 4 three-pack 'boxes' (or some combo)... Which I hope for your guys sake is not the case. Everyone should be allowed to have Stagg touch their tongue, no matter where one lives.

    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    While passing through LA on may way to TX I bought 1 bottle of Old Ezra 101 (good) and one bottle of Eagle Rare 10YO SB (YUM) a little light on the proof but full of flavor. Tonight it's ERSB on crushed ice.

    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    Since I love Eagle Rare 19, I bought a bottle of Eagle Rare 10YO this weekend. IT is 100 proof -- which is why I wonder what yours could be since you say it is a little light.

    The ER 10 was absolutely delightful!

    You mean Eagle Rare 17 right? Just want to make sure they didn't release a 19 year version before I go hunting!

    I have a bottle of both the Eagle Rare 17 year and Eagle Rare 10YO Single Barrel and both are 90 proof. Even at 90 proof, I still find both these bottlings superb! Since you have a 100 proof bottle (unless you mistyped) of the ER 10YO SB, I wonder if they made 2 variations at one time...

    Did you perhaps mistype?

    I have a bottle of the 10 y/o SB 90 proof (in the Stagg-like bottle) and a bottle of 10 y/o (not SB) 101 proof (in the stubby bottle). I haven't seen any Eagle Rare at 100 proof.

    Yours truly,

    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    Old Forrester 86 proof. I have long been an advocate of the 100 proof expression, but recently the profile seems to have changed. At least that is my perception. I now find it a tad hot and dry. In preparation for some company, of which several will likely want mixed drinks, I purchased a liter of 86 proof OF (original label). I am finding in this much of what I used to love about OF100, but still at a somewhat dissappointing 86 proof. I plan on trying another bottle of OF100 when I can find it with the new label, assuring myself of a different lot/batch.

    It is 90 and too good. It will not last long. I got both bottles for $41 so they were a deal.
