    I haven't opened it yet. My usual pattern.

    This still doesn't appear to have hit Maryland. Hopefully we'll get at least one of the two dumps.

    It's strange that this one seems to be so much of a fight for us all.

    I didn't even find out about Promise of Hope until March 2014 but it was sitting on shelves in lots of places right up to the summer (I'd even bet it still is).

    I was counting on just finding some on shelves when I get back to the States but perhaps I'm going to have to hustle. But yes, two dumps gives us hope.

    I think this is a result of the whiskey popularity trend finally catching up to HH. It seems that they've done less (maybe nothing?) to embrace that trend and that along with the multiple dumps kept PHC as the last annual release to be easily available. Combine the uniqueness of this years style along with barrel proof and I'm not surprised its gotten much more attention than years past.

    I agree it's more interesting, but the hysteria doesn't seem to correlate with the most interesting stuff.

    I guess I see everyone slugging it out to outspend themselves on Willetts while leaving PHCs on the shelf. It's not odd to me that PHC8 is fantastic, just odd that the hysteria market understands what it's bringing to the table. Usually if it doesn't have a buzzbrand on the label it gets left alone for we enthusiasts who drink the stuff.

    Oh well, hopefully the last to go up will be the first to come down.
