It is still hanging around in Atlanta as best I recall if you want me to check. I will have to look around to find the best price as my store has it but it tends to be on the high side for this one.

A couple places in Atlanta (you can probably guess) still show it in stock for $60.

It's readily available in my area, and priced in the $65 to $70 range.

Thanks guys. Would probably want it in the 50s, where it has been seen.

I am not sure I had seen this on the shelf in Indy before today.  However, I wasn't really looking.  I had seen the KC Single Barrel Rye @115 proof and the KC Double Barrel Rye.

 

I saw several bottles @ 119.6 proof which is interesting since that is the same proof as in bottle in the picture above.  However, the bottles I saw were barreled in 2008 and bottled in 2018 making them 10 years old.  I thought the price was a little high @ $69.99.  But, that may be a good price for a 10 year old CS rye of known provenance.

Fair price in today's market for sure, there is still quite a bit of the first release of this on the shelf here between $55 and $65. There was never a 2008 vintage (as far as I can tell) filed with the TTB though, there was the original 2009:

And 2010 at the proof you mentioned:

https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=18173001000260

 

So if you are correct it would be interesting, I'm not sure if the barreled on date would be something they could change on the label after approval though Proof is definitely something they can.

Given that I am sometimes confused on the day of the week, I very likely could be confused on the barreled on date.  I will try to stop in this week to double check.

I finally made it back to the store today and it was barreled in 2009 which is interesting since the proof matches the 2010.
