    It actually makes me happy that they do such good work. I hate to think that there's no place at all for an NDP. I mean, LDI and MGP make SO much spirit, I hate to think that it ALL goes on to finish its life as mediocre whiskey.

    Here was tonight's lineup. Actually we booted the Baby Saz as an unfair comparison. Otherwise a stellar aged rye grouping and the Willetts were in a dead heat as the winners with the Doug/Neal version maybe ahead by a nose. Probably unfair in terms of proof for the Hirsch/VWFRR/BMH but fun to sample them all.

    Old Dusty brought the A game! I recently tried those two Willetts and also preferred the Neal and Doug.

    That is a really beautiful sight. If you have these bottles on hand for another round of tasting, I'd be interested to here how the Willetts compare after being proofed down to say 95 proof. Though those Willetts are eminently drinkable neat, it'd be a cool experiment. Bet that was a fun night!

    Also to give credit where it is fully due, I provided only one of the bottles. My generous host bucky1 filled out the lineup and participated in the tasting. We both agreed on the results.

    I hope your bottle wasn't the Baby Saz!

    And, in the spirit giving credit, those were probably Dawn's bottles...
