    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I anxiously await this new thread. I just learned that I'll be in Montreal for a conference next March. I really hope that I don't have to wait that long to get my hands on a bottle of the new Lot 40.

    Yeah I can't wait to see how the comparison turns out either.

    All Old Potrero labels are 100% malted rye.

    The 18 is out there. I've passed at a couple places since it's $200.

    After employing a few key rationalizations (Scotch is often this costly, a bottle of wine this expensive is gone in a night, etc.) I took the plunge on Hotaling's.

    Label says one barrel and the bottle # is out of 225, so either this was either the absolute last barrel of this experiment or we'll see some older versions in a few years.

    Probably over the holiday; I wanted to give it my full attention and a fresh palate.
