    5. Vintage 23 Rye
    Guess you missed the rathskeller going around the gazebo last April. It's a delightful beverage

    Actually I can't remember if I missed it, or if I had it after way too many solid pours I'd like a redo at that one if someone has one laying around!

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    I've certainly had a lot of Charter over the years but not the 101. It's only available in the 175 here and I'm not curious enough to pay twice the price of Barton which I already know I like.

    look around a bit. if you can find it in a smaller size, i think you should try it. with the few bourbons i have found that i can say will be a repeat purchase, this is gonna be one of them. so my list now includes charter 101, kc 120, ogd114....i dont know about the KC120, but im starting to think i may be into rye-heavy whiskies....

    Squire, I think you and I are about the only ones who employ that type of math around here.

    My top 5 is pretty boring:

    1) KC 120
    2) ORVW 107
    3) KC 100
    4) OGD 114
    5) FC 103

    (Very) Honorable mention: EWB, OGD BIB, BT, SB Blend

    Wishlist for this coming winter/next year:

    * WLW BTAC
    * Pappy 15 (not in a hipster way... just haven't tried it yet, curious to try it at least once to see what all the hubbub is about)
    * Ritt BIB
    * 4RSB

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    Pretty new to Bourbon, been drinking unmixed for less than a year. So I have more untasted bottles than tasted at this point. However...

    Elijah Craig 20 yr
    Wild Turkey American Spirit
    Wild turkey Russell's Reserve
    Elijah Craig 12 yr
    Four Roses single Barrel

    I have probably tried about 15 Bourbons and haven't found anything that wasn't at least good.
