    Re: Old Scout 8 yr Barrel Proof Rye

    Astor has lost their damn minds with their private selection pricing, but I guess they can. The rest of the world has that around $45. You are right that there's not many competing products for that specific market. Willett is usually half the age and 110 proof, anything BP and 8 years and up is north of $80.

    Re: Old Scout 8 yr Barrel Proof Rye

    Astor prices are a little higher but at that proof you are getting close to two bottles of 80 proof, just a thought.

    Re: Old Scout 8 yr Barrel Proof Rye

    It's not a bad deal in a vacuum, but Astor has always been competitive with their pricing until the past 4 months. They now have Old Scout selections that are marked up 50% when compared to similar offerings from TPS or other vendors ($75 vs. $50, $65 vs. $46). They had an OWA pick that was somewhere near $40 if I recall.

    Not intending to threadjack, just surprised to see these new Old Scout prices from them. Or rather, not surprised at all.

    I think it's great that Knifestyles finds value at that price point and is considering another bottle.

    Re: Old Scout 8 yr Barrel Proof Rye

    Picked up a bottle from Astor also omw home from work few days ago. Tasted and seen the 7yr aroud the city for $35-$50 and it a decent pour. Astor is only place with the 8yr barrel proof, and like knifestyles said, it does not disappoint. Love my '13 THH and my soon to be empty '12 Saz 18. This is a very nice option to have between those two.
