KY Owl rye batch 2?

Recommended Posts

Batch 2 popped up in nashville today and i had to drive down from bowling green to get a bottle. I thought batch 1 was some of the best whiskey ive had... viscous, sweet, sugary mint. I got home with the batch 2 bottle and it is full of large jelly chunks. I understand the whole non-chill filtered thing, but this is extreme, like i could eat it with a spoon.

That... doesn't sound right. I'd take it back.

I have a bottle of Michters Bourbon that is cloudy like that.  Haven't yet opened it to find out what's up with it.

Passed on batch 2 for 175.99.  Have 3 of batch 1 in the bunker at avg of 110.  Also passed on knob creek cask strength for 70.99 but very tempted.

KC CS is under $60 on this side of the Hudson and to my taste well worth it. If that's the best price you can find for it I would say it's still worth it, but if you find yourself venturing off of LI for some reason you might save a few bucks.

Cracked Batch 2 this evening. It was a 'reasonable' price in the UK, surprisingly, still more than I'd like. But I have to say whilst my memories of Batch 1 are a while ago this is pretty impressive stuff. Very sweet, some bitterness on the finish, and at the lower proof very drinkable.

So I've started to see the price on this one come down here in the Garden State, a few stores have dropped it to $165 and I have to say that with only two bottles left in the bunker of batch 1, I am kind of tempted, $15 more bucks and I probably would have cracked on the spot.

I've run across batch 2 at $139.99, so it might be worth holding your cards. I'll be in NYC next week, and will let you know if I find any deals on it in your area.

Wow, I might even be interested at that price point!

Sorry, but I didn’t see a bottle for less than $195.00– with the highest at $299.00. I’ll keep my eyes open elsewhere.
