    Re: What Bourbon did you pass up today? Fall '13

    Willett FE rye.....what i really wanted was FE bourbon, 6-9 years. EVERYONE has loads of the 4 year FE rye right now. how's that song go?.....'10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife'


    the rye isnt priced bad, its about $35 everywhere. I havent had much luck enjoying straight ryes from anyone though, so im not gonna take the chance.

    You realize that when you find one it could well be from a _completely different distillery_ and be nothing like what you expect, right?

    I think it's safe to say, if the label says Indiana, it's from LGI.

    I saw the new tall thin bottles of Rebel Yell, like it's some premium brand.

    I passed on PHC7. I know that it is for a good cause and my wife even said that it is ok to go for it but there are too many other things I prefer at that price. I also passed on CEHT SmB. My main whiskey man, who I have bought from over the past several months, but met face-to-face today for the first time (a fellow SBer) gave me a taste but I just couldn't pull the trigger. Solid taste but about $10 more than I would spend without spending more time with it first.

    When i had my last bottle of CEHT SmB i remember continually thinking "well it's not BAD", but so many other choices in that same price range i felt much more positive about so haven't gone back.

    seeing as how practically everything Willett is sourced right now, and pretty much any sourced rye is from indiana, i think it is safe to say its probably not gonna be my thing. If it was their own recipe, yeah, id give it a try. but just a 110 proof version of the same rye eveyrone else is sourcing too? nah...

    Not talking about the rye. The bourbon. You're chasing the 6-9 year Willett now with no idea what it will taste like. ECBP round 2.
