I finally picked up a WTMK Revival the other day.  I’m looking forward to seeing this one in the wild .

Found a mess of DSP 354 Rittenhouse

Interesting old school stuff— dense and austere, sour versus sweet, black-peppered oak with savory spices— and a great delivery. Takes water well and has a true finish.

Revival is/was my favorite.

I'm a few pours I to this one and it might leap it. For me, the revival took a few pours to "open up". Cornerstone has been awesome from the first pour.
WT101 Rye with vanilla notes on the end and smooth all the way through.
This is what a $160 whiskey should be...

Finished a good one tonight, I will definitely have another bottle open soon.

This is one that I really hope I can get.  The good news is that this series has been pretty easy to find the past few years.

I do feel one of the advantages to being a Wild Turkey fan is that I don't have to really fight or pay stupid money for amazing product.

I think WT has also priced their LE products high enough to limit the secondary market from having much effect, and the number of bottles available has usually been pretty high for LE releases. I believe the numbers on this MK release are supposed to be a bit lower than the Revival release, so I’ll be picking one up as soon as I find one.

Anything is possible but it is a bit hard imagining that a distillery doesn't know anything about what is in a barrel they picked!

Did the distillery headstamp on the barrel  get somehow erased?

Grabbed an older WTKS because I wanted to make sure I had a tail feather bottle. Also they had 375’s of Bulleit and Bulleit Rye for 2 for 19.99. I grabbed four (3 bourbon, 1 rye) but thinking of stopping tomorrow for more. That’s really a great price.

A local store here has kinda the same deal. $19.99 for a boxed two pack containing one Bulleit and one Bulleit Rye.

Enjoying a lovely mingle I made a while back:  Collingwood 21yr Rye & 5yr WFE Rye (50/50).  I enjoyed the 5yr WFE, and the Collingwood 21yr was nice - but underproofed.  This really hits right in my wheelhouse.  Has that rye spice pop, along with those Canadian rye notes of pine and maple, with nuance - but at 95 proof still some punch.

Taking the '18 Michter's 10yr for a first spin tonight.  Not impressed with the nose at all, but I never  judge a whiskey primarily by the nose anyway, so no big deal.  On to the palate and finish... taste very good , one of the few ryes I've tasted with heavy oak being the dominant note.  This is a good whiskey but for the money I think I'd go for their LE barrel proof first.

The Michter's 10yr kept getting better with each subsequent pour (funny how that works, huh).   Really enjoyed it, and decided that as a unique experience, it's worth the extra cost for one bottle, just to try it.

Now I'm finishing out the night with a familiar bottle, 2016 CEHT Rye.  It's working well tonight.

Enjoyed two pours of Booker's Rye tonight. So much depth, motor oil like viscosity and a finish that is 8 Days a Week long. 

 

Cheers

Finally got hold of some Old Forester Rye a couple weeks ago in VA.  I'd say it is very nice for $19.99.  A little sweet on the front end but finishes with some nice spice.  Definitely buy again.

Maybe we can get that put together for the 2nd half of August or early September

I went into the wine and spirits department of a favorite supermarket with the idea of buying some Stagg Jr to replace a bottle that I had emptied. There wasn't any Jr but behind the counter were bottles of WSR, ER10, and some Baby Saz. Baby Saz is a far cry from the Stagg Jr but its consistent quality of flavor and its rarity at MSRP these days made the sale for me. Wednesdays are rye whiskey day at Casa de PG so it was a right place, right time kind of deal for me.

One of my favorites, been drinking on one for a few months. Glad to have more put away?

I just might be the biggest fan of Baby Saz around. Just so yummy straight AND so versatile.

I’ve got some baby saz in the glass. It’s perfectly fine but kind of boring. Just me and my odd preferences.
