In fact, some of the best cocktails I've been served involve Willett Rye at 110pr and Royal Dock Gin at 114pr.
I'm just excited to see some ATL retailers going the barrel selection route. Even the big boys have (Tower, Greens, . . .) been few and far between, so hopefully this one works out for the retailer and they try it again. I guess we just need to think of this as a baby step towards progress, I mean it's only been a year or 2 now that you could buy a bottle on Sunday in GA.
A restaurant near me did a 4R selection this summer, also 100 proof OBSV. It's slightly different than others I have had, but not far and away better than what I can buy down the street at the liquor store. The real crime is that they're charging $11 a pour for it.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
Well, it is specially selected after all.
