    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Fall/Winter '13

    Michael, that Willett looks intriguing, same barrel as the samples you got from Johnny? The Gift Shop had V23 and WFE 25 ryes but they were pretty salty at well over $200 ea. I could only pull the trigger on one thing and went with the 20 yr barrel proof bourbon. Afraid the ryes would be too woody for my taste.

    I assume it is the same barrel, it is quite a delicious rye. The 25 yr gift shop ryes I have are quite woody and syrupy, so probably a good pass @ $200 unless you really enjoy a lot of wood. Would be interested in trying the 23 yr rye from the gift shop.

    It was the Vintage23 bottle at about $225 if I remember correctly. The 20 yr bourbon was slightly less expensive and my splurge ended there. They did have quite a few bottles of the 23 if you can find a good mule in the area.

    Oops, didn't see the V when I was reading the post.. I think that is a good pass but I am not a fan of V21 or V23

    Nothing. I like reading this thread and living vicariously through others though.
