Acquired the Jeff 25 at long last thanks to the great generosity of a local SBer. Had a taste with a few friends last night and we all agreed it is easily drinkable, quite tasty and a cut above the 21. Of course so is the price!
Not really a good comparison though as that was after a beer tasting of 10+ beers so I hope to settle in with it in a SBS with the 21 for a better impression sometime this week.
How rye this old can be so lacking in wood is a curiosity and makes me wonder if this isn't Canadian sourced rye of some sort like the early Jeff 10. Of course we may never know for sure.
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

I'm also very interested in hearing the SBS comparison with the 25 since it's also available to me.
Picked up two bottles of Willett 4yr 110° today. It has been a while since I had come across one, let alone two.

Pick up of Bulleit Rye 1L for 38.99.. Cant really find a better deal elsewhere anymore and its my everyday Rye
Just grabbed this Smooth Ambler Old Scout 8yr Rye (bottled at cask strength) that was selected by Astor Wines.
Really feeling this one. Nice to find an option somewhere in between Willett and Handy (as far as bottling proof is concerned).
Picked up a bottle of Ritt BIB, DSP-1 for the bunker. Love the taste of it.
Another bottle of High West 21. Now I have a backup.
picked up a few Willett 4yo ryes--I really enjoy the 5yo and it will be interesting to compare the younger one to it.
