    per humchan 2k's recommendation, I picked up a High West Rendezvous at Binny's and saw the recent crash site.
    oh, and finally caved and got the Amrut Fusion

    Yeah, when I saw the rye porn photo of those 4 bottles...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLnWf1sQkjY

    I am really glad that rye ended up with someone who will open it and enjoy the hell out of it. Well done, Mike.

    You know, that's a good point. I had each in my hand the other day, and put both back. The SA is $36, and the Willett $35. I already have a bottle of the 4-year Willett at home, so that got sacrificed as I was loading up on bourbon. The SA I just decided against at the time. Notwithstanding the price and age difference, any thoughts on flavor between the two?

    I have had both though not near as much SA as Willett. To me it is typical MGPI rye. More proof helps but I don't find any of them to be all that different even if slightly older unless they have been finished or altered in some way (Dickel, AE Rum cask, Hooker House, etc.). Others likely have more discriminating palates!

    Maybe significantly older it would be different but 4 to 6 or 7 year old MGPI rye whiskey seems pretty similar to me, no matter who bottled it.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Wish a few of those ryes would wander into my pond, I have a net.

    Picked up a bottle of Handy for $60 in MD after leaving it on the shelf a few weeks ago.

    Found 4 bottles of WT 101 Rye. Should be enough to hold me over until the next release starts up.
