    Re: Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Yr Old Rye

    Tony the retailers I know prefer customers who buy regularly over one who comes in occasionally for a high price bottle. It would seem the best way to make an impression is get them to recognize your face.

    I've had it many times and love it. But it's missing that crazy finish.

    Re: Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Yr Old Rye

    As an artificial sweetener, its a good substitute for NutraSweet or Sweet'N Low. As a rye whiskey...blech.

    Side note: Instead of finishing the bottle, I hid it at a forum member's house. Wonder if he'll ever find it...

    Thanks Squire- I go with this philosophy as well. And it probably did not make any difference that I bought that bottle. I make sure I shop the same three liquor stores to get a shot at some of the limited stuff.

    Warm regards, Tony

    It seems to get a mixed reception. I really liked it right after opening and I am not a big believer in oxidation affecting whiskey but my first bottle did seem to get a bit muted with time. I will be curious to hear what you think. The WP Boss Hog when first opened pretty well blew away the LSB that had been open a while even when the Boss Hog proof was lowered a bit. Haven't had a rematch yet though.

    Must be that all American bourbon barrel finishing process for the WP...

    A good deal of speculation on the source of Jeff rye at the moment and the original bottles that noted a Canadian source are uncommon now. Also at a bit lower proof. So may wish to proceed with caution. Lack of info about source of whiskey and even what is in the bottle as this thread notes leaves Jefferson only a little above WP in the transparancy department.

    Cooper Spirits has at least said openly on this forum that they are using the Alberta Distillery for their LSB rye (even if the bottle is a bit less clear). That counts for something to me although perhaps not enough for some to consider the notable cost difference. Then again it is a good bit cheaper than Boss Hog at about the same age if a little lower in proof. I suppose if you water down the Boss Hog to the same proof it is about the same cost.

    Re: Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Yr Old Rye

    Even if I'm correct (my industry sources say I am) I'm careful to say Alberta whiskys should be similar and do not claim they are the same. Heaven Hill only uses one rye based mashbill but they produce decidedly different products from that base.

    Blind tasting at the gazebo should yield some dandy results.

    Re: Cooper Spirits new 13yo Rye

    Back to Bourbon, it's always back to the Bourbon. I don't like the price Cooper has set on their Rye but I do appreciate the openness with which it's presented.

    Re: Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Yr Old Rye

    Thanks for the merge. To me the LSB is far superior in taste than the WP but I don't feel the extra price is justified. I bought because after 6 months my curiosity got the best of and besides I can.

    With so much bs coming out of WP they have lost my business and lately I found the Jeff 10 way too variable.
