    Re: What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    Added two more bottles to my Wild Turkey Rye 101 stash. I had to travel a few towns over to make the purchase. Real small town with a real small liquor store, run by an older gentleman and his wife. I'd imagine these bottles have been sitting there for more than a few years, of which I've known about their existence for 3-4 months. I hadn't cleaned the store out previously because, being a small store, the price wasn't the best ($28/bottle) and I still had a few other options for securing WTR101. Well, after those other options were exhausted, I readjusted the amount I was willing to pay for my favorite rye, and hit-up the small-town store. I'm happy with the purchase and my current, updated stockpile--7 sealed and 1 nearly full bottle.

    Sometimes price is not the value of a thing.

    1 E H Taylor rye
    1 Knob Creek rye
    2 Baby Saz

    Good deals on the Saz and the KC. Less than 30 a piece. Taylor was 65. First time trying it but I REALLY like the Taylor. 9 yrs well spent on this one.

    I have a question. I grabbed the letter that must ship with the case of Handy, because I bought everything on the shelf. It is dated July 15th 2010, I find it hard to believe they sat that long can I tell the year off the bottle?

    You can tell by the proof. Put Handy and the proof into google and you should come up with it pretty quickly.

    You can tell by proof. It's different every year. And yes, they will sit on the shelves that long since they are the least prized of the BTAC. There was a bunch around here from 2010 until recently. Somebody must be talking them up.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
