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

    WTR 101. Sitting hidden in the middle of a line of 81's. Was a little more $27 than I wanted but still worth it. The case at home is now full so will need to find a new hiding spot!

    Bought a second VR21 and a VR23 for the bourbon mule. Cheers!

    Saz18. Thought I was going to have to drive 6 hours to pick it up when it dawned on me that one of my car buddies has family in Baton Rouge and sure enough he was going home for Thanksgiving. He didn't mind at all picking it up. But then I did haul his race tires to Georgia and back a couple months ago. Seems like a fair trade of pack mule duties.

    Whoa, nice. I am surprised to hear these are still in the wild.

    Some places in Hawaii just don't know what they have.

    I picked up a trio of HW16 375s at a small corner store in Boston. One for my brother on being a new dad, and two for me. I haven't seen this in the Chicago market for at least the last year so I figured it might be my last chance even though I paid a 33% premium over what I paid for my 750s.

    The Boston no liquor tax policy helped close that gap though!

    Some great finds! Aaron, that HW16 is a great pickup, very scarce around MA now too. No sales tax is pretty great, but Boston prices definitely tend to be above MSRP. There's just nothing better than scoring a great bottle of rye. Well, other than drinking it!

    That's cool! Pretty interesting trade of "services!"

    Trekked into Binny's south loop store before taking my sister out to lunch today. Convenient for me she lives pretty close to there.

    Saw a lot and passed on most.

    Ended up with the trip with two Lot 40's for the trip. Excited to open one of these when I get home and see how the goods shake out.

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

    Picked up another bottle of the WFE 4 Rye. The first bottle I tried really surprised me so it was a no brainer when I found a second bottle. Also my buddies were traveling through KY coming back from IL and picked up a couple bottles of WTR 101 for me.

    If only I could find a Saz 18. That one still eludes me. On the other hand, what is the consensus on the HW 21 and the Hirsh 25? These have been on my radar but I've yet to pull the trigger.
