Just wanted to "thank" all the knowledgable and friendly voices on this board. Thanks to you, what has been a roughly 6 year interest in rye whiskey has, in a few short, precious weeks, blossomed into a full-blown bourbon obsession. I now am the proud owner of multiple bottles of WT RR 101, WT 12, WT Tribute, ORVW 15, Old Fitz 1849, Rittenhouse Rye, Saz Jr and orphans of WT KS, Hirsch 16, ORVW 10 107, PVW 15, Buffalo Trace, Old Fitz BIB, Sazerac Rye '02, and a few more odds and ends.
The latest twist in the saga involved check out at my favorite liquor shop with my girlfriend in tow where, when I passed them my credit card and in full view of the checkout staff, she asked if I had "that much money in my account?"
Don't get me wrong. This is more a reflection on my dubious financial condition than on the enormity of my purchase but still...humiliation is humiliation.
That said, I need a drink. I think I'll kill this open bottle of EC12, crack open a newbie and get back to poring over the old posts.
Thanks all. Best. And sip safe.
