In know there are several stores in the Pittsburgh area that have it in stock. You might want to call the PLCB consumer hot-line. They can tell you if a store closer to you has it. The phone number is 1-800-332-7522. The product code number for the VWFR Rye 13yo is #10230. BTW, it's $24.99 plus tax (6% in most areas, 7% in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia). Happy hunting.
Not necessarily. Look at Jack Daniels. I'd be hard pressed to call that a good product.Of course if they didn’t have a basically good product all this marketing wouldn’t mean anything.
While I have to agree, this isn't the worst Bourbon I've ever swallowedas Charlie Daniels would say “give the devil its due.”
(followed further down the line, by stuff I've spit out... )
I do have a problem, now that they are trying to trademark 'wax drips'.
This forces other distilleries to have to devise a way to avoid gravity, more manhours in bottling, additional cost, etc. Pretty selfish, IMHO. Starting to remind me of Microsuck...same product with a different color wax or label
My fault, too. I usually write ER 19 but mean ER 17. SORRY.
And I think they are ALL superb. I enjoy the Eagle Rare 10 year old, 101 proof very much and it has been a recent purchase and recent frequent pour for me.
The Eagle Rare 10/101 is quite good, Mark. Very very Sweet.
I'm kinda kicking myself for not grabbing one while down there now. I was going to since the price was reasonable as well and never did. Oh well, there's always next year haha. Seeing as how I know we both love the 17 year Tom, I'm going with you on this one.
I appreciate the comments and suggestions. As a result I have added a few selections to my shopping list. Wild Turkey Russels Reserve, Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit, AH Hirsch anything, Old Rip Van Winkle anything, Weller anything and Eagle Rare anything. The Weller and Eagle Rare are very difficult to get here in Washington State.
Here is an update on my quest to date. I have now tasted Knob Creek and Wild Turkey 101 in addition to the Maker's Mark, Elijah Craig 12 yr and Wild Turkey Rare Breed. I wouldn't kick any out of bed. Current impressions. Maker's Mark is smooth and mellow. Wild Turkey Rare Breed is powerful, Wild Turkey 101 has more flavor. Knob Creek has lots of flavor, Elijah Craig has even more flavor. Both have some of the wood showing.
I can't pick a favorite yet.
Come on Jimbo you have to , and you have to stick with it from now on!I can't pick a favorite yet.
Jimbo, you may be onto something there. I can see that phrase becoming a regular around here. That phrase fits so perfectly with how I feel about several bourbons, including the Bulleit that I commented on earlier tonight.I wouldn't kick any out of bed.
