    That was probably me, since that is what was said to me by Eddie Russell when I asked him about the products return.

    We will just have to wait and see what plays out.

    What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    The label pictured is a 1L but the approval lists 750ml, 375ml, and 1.75L as approved sizes.

    WT also submitted this label the same day: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...13095001000559

    By the way, it appears that the reason for the new label submissions is so that they can replace Jimmy's name with Eddie's. Here's the previous one: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...11152001000424
    But just on the 81 proofers? https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...13095001000556

    GB, I like the Dickel quite a bit, seems to me that the charcoal filtration rounded out the prickly, pickly edges of the LDI juice quite a bit, one of the few ryes I've enjoyed more on the rocks, mint comes forward, and its not overly sweet. Unfortunately around these parts prices are all over the place on this product, ranging from 25-38. I got mine for the former, but if it were 21 like in the Great North I'd be a repeat buyer. No wonder they ran out. I find the Dickel to most closely resemble the Redemption Rye of all the LDI ryes out there.

    I purchased several more bottles of WTR 101 and am starting to see the 81 proof fill up the old spots.

    Baby Saz! finally found some, in fact a stash of it... I passed on some a month ago and went to collect and all 5 were gone. I should have known better when the drop happened.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Wiser's Legacy.

    Seek it out my friends, if you haven't tried it before.

    Take Wiser's Legacy, add Lot no 40 and one of the Forty Creek limited editions and you would have the top 3 Canadian whiskies (bottled by distillery in Canada) on the market today.

    I tried to grab some when I was in Vancouver, BC a few weeks back. All of the lower mainland stores, except one out of the way location, were out. I see it is in the States now, so I will make an extra effort to track it down after your recommendation.
