    What rye are you drinking Spring/Summer 2015?

    Welcoming spring with a nice pour of HW MWND. Gonna be sad to see this bottle go, but glad samples from other batches have been just as delicious!

    Some MWND for me as well on a snowy first day of Spring.

    I was a local liquor store yesterday and noticed they had a few of these. Not sure which act, etc...

    Price was $85. May have to pick up a bottle to see what the fuss is all about.

    I wouldn't say that MWND is incredibly subtle or complex, but I do think it is absolutely delicious. I find it to be dangerously drinkable.

    Couldn't agree more - delicious and drinkable are definitely words that come to mind! Speaking of which . . . back at the MWND tonight!

    Yeah, I think I'll be having a snort or two tonight. It is the fruit punch of rye whiskies for me. And I mean that in a completely complimentary way.

    Having a second large pour, since the first went down so well. I have to say, High West does their finishes better than the majority of scotch whisky producers. I honestly regret not buying 3-4 bottles of this, because I can't think of an easier drinking, more pleasurable whiskey to enjoy than MWND. I hope this year's release tastes as good, because I will absolutely remedy that mistake.

    OK, you guys talked me into it. Picked up two bottles yesterday for $84.99 each. The store had two bottles left on the shelf. They are all Act 2.1.

    @garbanobean - where in MD are you? I am actually going to be in MD for easter weekend. Let me know if you want me to grab the last two bottles for you. Then again, not sure how much you paid in MD as these are NYC prices.
