    Re: What rye are you drinking Spring/Summer 2014?

    This evening, at dinner with several couples at one of the finer locals. Didn't see any rye on the drink menu, so I inquired. Waiter advised that they had x, y, and z (nothing special) but wasn't sure when I asked about WP cask strength. She offered to check for me and ended up coming back to note that they did have Saz 18. Why yes, I believe I will (trying to keep a straight face). She came back with a three finger pour, neat that ended up being 10 bucks. Yes, I did have another.

    And if they could just bring me the rest of the bottle, I'll take it. Wow - what a score!

    Wow $10 for a 3 finger pour.! They would have needed to carry me out of there with Mrs TT driving me home.

    I would have been asking for ride from you in this case. That bottle would have been empty at that price.

    It was surreal. Here I am with great food, company, drink and music but I had to sit there for the last two hours or so with only water knowing that I had to drive home....a very difficult thing to do. In hindsight, I should have drank the whole bottle and called a cab.

    Nearing the end of a 2011 Handy, so I'm going slow and savoring this pour. I'm really gonna miss this when it's gone.

    Had a nice three finger pour of Old Scout cask strength to close out the evening. Not quite up to last evenings standard, but a solid stand up double with a kicking long finish.

    THH12 tonight. My bottle was fairly harsh when I opened it 6-ish months ago, but has mellowed to the point that I've become quite fond of it. Lots of nice baking spices, no more sinus blast.
