Where did you get, if I might ask, I was in the UK last week and this was a $100 plus bottle.

I've been back up in Whistler the past few days, but this time for fun. Once again, I brought my own, this time some RR10yr and ER10.

Finished off the Russell's (wasn't much left) but did not make much of a dent in the ER10 because a friend I was visiting with was making Sazeracs with Crown Royal Black. (You do what you gotta do in Canada where American Rye is in short supply). They were good!

"I think I paid about $35 incl shipping to get this bottle from Europe. It's an outstanding example of what the Turkey can produce.  I love it."

Untitled #9 Batch #1, 6- yr. old, 86 proof, from One Eight Distilling in Washington, D.C. Have tried the #3 and another number I don't recall, but they've all been good. This one won a gold at the 2017 San Francisco Spirits Competition. At least we know one good thing comes out of Washington. :-)

SAOS SB, 10 years and 59%. I'll miss these — really good and very reasonably priced.

I've had my future Missess pour blind twice for me tonight.  First was ER10.  It's always a fine pour, but I prefer a number of others in the same price range.  Second was SJR.  The more I have from this bottle, the more I like it.

Enjoying a little W12 this evening. I haven't had any in a while, since I'm trying to conserve my supply until this fall when I will hopefully find a few bottles of replacements.

This stuff is great, just wish it was 90+. Try it two parts Stagg Jr, one part OC8yr. Great blend.

First time I have tried it. I could get in trouble with this stuff. It goes down so easy. lol

I've tried this a few times, but this is my first pour at home.  This stuff really hits the spot right now.

Poured myself some RHF since it seems to be the new "it bourbon".

 

...yep, still very enjoyable - and still nothing to freak out about or overpay for.

 

In saner times to come I hold hope that I encounter a store pick of this.

Son and I popped the cork on our first bottle of RHF.  Like you we found it very enjoyable.  I'm becoming quite enamored with BT Mash Bill #2.

Like you said, WT has history, it needs to feel old, not cool or whatever. 
 
 
 


Maybe I'm just a nerd but I think Old/history is cool. I'm probably not the only as a lot of the craft guys try to come up with some old history BS.

Those pisans at Campari need to get there stuff together.

Having a pour of a similar age 1L WT101. Am I crazy or do the bottles from 10 years back seem to have more spice, as if they had more rye in the mash.
