I hit up Ky last week for a short trip over my birthday and picked up a few bottles.  I grabbed some 14yr Willett WFE Bourbon, WFE 4yr rye, Speakeasy (another KBD brand), Old Overholt bonded, Woodford's new Batch Strength release, Double Double Oak, Old Bardstown Bib, Peerless Rye, and a few different 4R private select pics from both gift shops.  Nothing crazy but plenty of good drinking...

Good night! You just "grabbed" some WFE 14 y/o bourbon?  What a good haul. Congrats!

Found one bottle of this dc'd label RR Rye. 10$ cheaper out of state than the gougers up here.

Yeah..wow!   That was an expensive trip.  Can I ask what the WFE14 year set you back?

I can still find that label around my neck of the woods occasionally for $45. What was your price?

They were about $75 after tax, and no you can't try before you buy unfortunately.  If you are a Mellow Moments member, make sure to bring your card and show it to them.  They have goodie bags that had a flask and a pen for members.

I found a couple of those at a truck stop in Louisiana a few weeks ago.  $38.  Bought 2 as I recalled enjoying this particular breed.

When I went to the distillery last April, I was able to sample 3 Distiller Select bottles.  I politely asked a gal in the gift shop, and she said to wait for the next tour group to leave and the place clears out.  Sure enough, one of the guides came and escorted me to a tasting room, and I found the bottle I wanted.  Looking back, I wish I'd bought all three...
