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

    Ah, just read Julian's post of 3-11-04 where he said they would use up his rye stock in 14 years (2016) at the depletion rate of about 400 cases a year.

    Anybody know how many cases of VWFFR was released in 2013?

    Not sure since i don't think they generally say but I think it has been less than that. Not counting what walked out the warehouse earlier this year of course! Would only make sense to blend it over several years to try to make the transition as seemless as possible over several years.

    But I certainly don't know what they are really doing!

    picked up a bottle of Willett 4yr 110 proof rye. Although I know this is from Indiana, the continuing good reports about this stuff convinced me to give it a try.

    I've been very happy with the bottles I have had. Of all the iterations of LDI/MGPI/Seagrams/WTFBBQ I like the Willetts by far the best.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I think you'll be pleased. I am very impressed with my bottle, as a 4 year old $35 rye. Really delicious flavor-I suspect the higher proof helps in that department.

    Like I often say, I should have bought more, as my usual sources seem to be out of it now.

    I also picked up a Willett 4yr today. Had been passing on it regularly, but the good reviews above nudged me enough to give it a go.
