No “Pappiez”, just plain old WT101. I’d said before I love the variety but if this was all I could get I’d die a happy man.

Salut!

I am really liking the most recent bottle of WT101 I got.  I ended up buying a back up.

I feel this is the new norm. I actually enjoy this over any WT101 over the past 20 years that I’ve had.

People paying crazy prices for stuff like WSR when this is available makes no sense.

In your opinion was the 18 year worth the money?

I've never had the 15 or 18 year wisers before so I'm not sure what to expect, but from what I've been reading it sounds like reviewers rate it higher than the 18.

So would the pot distilled rye also be at least 35 years old? It can't be younger if it's in there right.

I don't think the 18 is worth the money, no. It was all vanilla and maple syrup, verging on cloying sweetness. Light and thin as most Canadians are. Luckily I had a pour at a bar and didn't pick up a bottle. Now if you tend to like Canadian Whiskies, you will probably like it, so you can safely ignore my opinion, as I've been disappointed by them frequently.

 

As to the 35, yeah I suppose the rye component would have to be 35 years old as well. I would love to taste that on its own, before it's watered down / blended.

VW 12 yr Lot B and GTS. After 4 or so years in this hobby, I’ve finally obtained a couple bottles for home enjoyment. Looking forward to sharing these with friends and family (who can appreciate the pours of course).

A little happy hour single barrell 100 proof sbsbs. All really good pours. Wanting sweet, go for EHT. Want allspice and clove, go JJB. Wanting the (imo) perfect example of a high rye bourbon, go 4R

Picked up two more OF1910s.  Big fan.  Stocking up whenever I see it, especially at $40ish like today.

Its about $55 around here - if I saw it for $40 I'd be tempted to buy a case! Really enjoying the 1910.

I'm looking forward to trying the 1910, but so far it's not available in NC.

Bought a CEHTSB just because it was looking at me on the shelf.  Already have a couple, but these seem to be set on auto-purchase with me.

Same here. I think it’s delicious and here in TX the allocation in 2018 seemed nearly nonexistent. Last month I was lucky enough to come across a 128.1 proof 2017 release.

Wait, I just noticed something... were you hiding in the garage, drinking WT101?

If so, that's awesome.

I wish I ran across a BP lol.  This one was a single barrel.  They seem to randomly pop up in clusters around me then disappear a little while.

Same here. I misread and thought you were referring to BP. The rest of my comments still apply. I always keep a bottle of CEHT SiB onhand.
