Picked up a special store bottling of 100 proof High West Double Rye. Eager to stack it up against the lower octane version which is one of my favorites.

Grabbed a HW Rendezvous finished for 2.5 years in a bourbon barrel and bottled at 53% ABV. Not cheap, but looking forward to trying it.

Found two bottles of Old Scout Rye 8YO cask strength on the shelf. They left with me.

I have had their 7YO 100 proof stuff and it was very good i am hopping this stuff is just as good.

I don't think you will be disappointed.

I wish you wouldn't have. You're going to post an eloquent review and make me want to buy one aren't you?

This is kinda funny. A local county released a large shipment of baby Saz at $30 a bottle. I had 1 at home but grabbed 4 while it was in stock at the lowest price we see locally. I then got on a plane to visit my sister in New Orleans for a week. She didn't have any whiskey in the house so we headed to a local grocery for some food and my whiskey. They had a decent selection, but the best value? Baby Saz at $25. I tried to figure out another option but it was the best deal so I grabbed a bottle and had a couple pours before bed. 1st world problems!

In my state Sazerac is rarely seen and the going price is around $40.  It just goes to show how much states can vary.  There's even one store I know, has one behind the counter with the fancey stuff.  They want $60. :lol: They're jerks anyway.

I haven't seen it around stl in the last 2 years. I don't care for it much though, so no great loss to me.

Jim Beam Yellow Label.  This was my grandfathers preferred rye, most likely due to the lack of rye whiskey in his time.  But, I do enjoy it for what it is and it always makes me think of my grandfather, which is most certainly worth the $15.99.

Geeez- I didn't even know that is was available in 1.75l size. I just got a 750 for 29.99 yesterday, was the first time in a year that it had made an appearance around here. Looks like the entire state only got like 26-6 bottle cases.

$25 in Texas. About $90 in London. Makes absolutely zero sense.

Ha. I didn't know they made a handle of it, either!

It's very nice rye, but I wish they'd dial up the proof even just a little to 100+

We never say that about things that are bottled at cask strength! Just saying...
