    No. I can get it on sale for around $20. It is very similar to Dickel rye (same source) and I actually prefer the Dickel slightly. I don't know what you pay for Dickel rye down there but I wouldn't pay more than that for Bulleit.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Dickel rye is the same price here.

    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    I guess I was not aware that New Holland had quite as many different whiskey's on the market (They show 8 on their website. Was only aware of the Beer Barrel Bourbon). Saw the Zeppelin Bend straight malt whiskey (90pf) and the Pearse Lyons whiskey from Alltech (80pf) in a store yesterday. The Zeppelin notes it is aged in new charred oak and presumably must be at least 2yo although neither gives a clear indication of age.

    Curious about them but not curious enough to buy one. Cut the price of the Zeppelin off in the picture and don't remember what is was, certainly over $30 though, and the Lyons was $31 which is perhaps slightly cheaper than most young "craft" whiskey seems to be.

    IMO, run from that Pearse Lyons and the Town Branch from Alltech. Both are sup par IMO.. I know the Town Branch is (poorly) sourced bourbon since they have not been distilling there very long. Not to mention an outright lie told on the distillery tour during a video by Lyons himself.

    You can only lie to me once, I wonder why they think they can get away with it.

    It's not even any good, so not sure why they would want to claim it as theirs to begin with.

    Perhaps to them a sale is more important than repeat business.

    Quite possibly. Probably.

    Quick tangent...wonder if they'll ever make a Dippin' Dots bourbon?

    I wonder how much Breckenridge Bourbon had to pay someone to say whats on that tag around the neck of their bottle "one of the top three bourbons in the world".

    He is not making the claim that it is their own bourbon. When describing Town Branch distillery, he says it is the first commercial distillery in lexington since prohibition when BarrelHouse, a very small distillery is just down the road in Lexington and has been at it for a couple of years.
