I seriously considered pulling the trigger, but I decided I wasnt wanting to spend $69.99 on bourbon today. These are 375s.

That would have been very tempting at that price.

I would have thought more than seriously about that, and then pulled out my wallet. That’s not a bad price for that set.

I agree, that's a really good price. They basically have a pallet full. I'll likely have one bu the weekend.

Doesn't seem all that long ago that I was grabbing EC18 at $35 to $38, right after it was announced that it would be pulled and then coming back at $120.  Yikes. I still view Bookers as a $38 to $43 bourbon, but I will flinch and buy it at the going price these days.

 

BTW, JJ, I grew up in McLean, and worked in Falls Church as a teenager in high school.  A very long time ago.

The area has probably changed even more than the bourbon prices have, but I still like it here.

Passed on HMK10 at $50 from an online retailer that just recently sold it for $28.  $50 will still buy a KCSB store pick...

Kentucky Owl 10 yr Rye showed up today.  I hear it's good, but didn't want to spend the $200 to try it.  I expect that was msrp too...

I don’t think I could’ve passed. That cask strength 46 is interesting. Considering it’s 1.5 bottles of cask strength the price isn’t terribly out of line at all.

Good eye there BMartin42.  I didn't realize the 46 was cask strength.  Now I'll be on the look out for these.

I think the price is actually a screaming deal when you consider that you’re getting the equivalent of 1.5 cask strength bottles, and two of those bottles normally sell for around $70 per 750ml bottle.

Just sad, I’d really like to try this but WT missed the mark again by overpricing there LEs. Maybe they have a different model there working towards in which there LEs are priced at a range only for folks with a bunch of money and not intended to fly off the shelf or be a marketing tool for there lower end products. They don’t need the marketing, they have plenty of there standard product that sells itself.

 

 

And I read a recent post that a rare breed rye is in the works so its easy to pass on this one ( pricing killed it for me anyway).

Interesting to know if they replace the WT81 with anything in foreign markets. Whilst you can get the 101 Rye in some countries, here in the UK the only rye officially distributed is the 81.. hopefully they replace it with the RB Rye, as we get the bourbon.

I think as is most everyone on here I’m not a fan of the 81proof but really enjoy the 101 rye. Often times I’ve been in the buying mood for the 101 but all I see is 81. I hope the 101 is as widely distributed as the 81 currently is when 81 disappears.

101 rye should see more distribution 

 

Rye stocks still stretched and having RR 6yr 90 fits the bill of a lower proof rye.
