I would have passed on the Willett at that price too, and I have to go out of state to pick one up!

As I’ve moaned about before, liquor is higher here but since the Willet isn’t readily seen I’m not sure what the going rate for the Pot Still is or elsewhere for that matter. $40-45??

I was actually a little let down on the pot still by itself, but when I used it in a mint julep it was on point.  I won’t be replacing that bottle once it’s empty with another

Just me; but, I wouldn't pay over about $36 for WPS.    The bottle is attractive If you like that sort of arts presentation, of course); but it's pretty hard to find shelf space for the damned thing!   It's both wide & tall.   ...And the juice has never been that special for my taste buddies, anyway.

Picked up bottle of Eagle Rare at the local Jewel as it’s getting harder to find lately. Always good to have a backup of one of my favorites.

Is Willet Pot Still Reserve worth a $60 price tag? I have an opportunity to snag a bottle but wanted some input.

Sorry I guess I should've looked above for my answer.

A friend came across these in another state and delivered them to me yesterday.

2 pickups today. Canada Day long weekend is approaching fast. 101 came with a WT glass. Long time favourite.

I've never actually bought a bottle the EW Blk before but figured why not try it out. I like most other HH stuff. The WT 101 was $36.50(27 US) and the EW Blk was $25(19 US).

It is really nice to see a pic of an EW Black, on here.  It is a solid whiskey that doesn’t get the respect it deserves, IMO.

Huge fan of the Taylor Barrel Proof.  My first one of those I got around two years ago at that price and last time I saw it in that store the price had jumped to $250 and that was a pass.  Is this last year's 129.7 or is this a new one?

It is the  129.7 from 2018.  Fairly certain I was the beneficiary of a pricing error on this one.

Even though I rarely enjoy finished whiskeys I had to try this one. If it doesn’t work for me I’ve got friends that might want it. 😀

Not purchased but gifts rather from my 40th this past weekend.
The Bulleit was from a buddy and might be what gets me started into cocktails. Bag is kinda cool. Another buddy gifted me a one ounce sample of ‘70s era ET. The vintage glass from my parents and the engraved cigar holder glass from the wife and kids.

@FacePlant, I hope this isn't inappropriate to ask since that is my creation, but I'd really love to hear your thoughts about it. I've added a little more 20 year old bourbon to batches 11 through 14 than I did to your batch #10, but even so, I still added a fair amount in this one. I hope it wasn't too much that it made it overly oaky. 

 

Cheers,

Nancy
