I feel honored to have tried a sip of this.

Finished this last night.  As many here have said, a very festive holiday pour.  Cheers!

To the recycling they go. Felt like this was a pretty solid set.

I don't drink nearly as much rye as I do bourbon, but that gap has begun to shrink some lately.  Over the Christmas-New Years holiday period, I went through more rye than usual, including the bottles pictured below.

 

The MWND bottle is one that I have been nursing for about three years.  A pour of this has always hit the spot during the holidays.  I hated to see it go, as it was a wonderful bottle.  The Pikesville continues to please each time I have it.  A really nice whiskey at a fairly reasonable price.  The only problem is that I am seeing the supply of this dry up at my liquor sources.  (I think that I have heard this story before!)

Perusing this thread again, I am yet again taken aback by this post.  It's not every day you see a Booker's Rye emptied.  Impressive feat sir.  Well done.  I still can't bring myself to open my only bottle, but luckily I have a  4oz sample bottle from a family member I can go to whenever it's calling me.

Well hell, it started calling me.

Here's the thing.  If you don't enjoy it, someone else probably will someday.

I find it a bit refreshing when I don't have a backup bottle.  I have no choice but to make the most of it and enjoy it.  When I have a backup bottle, I seem to hold onto it forever, waiting for some imaginary special occasion that never happens.

I probably only drank 1/3 of that bottle myself.  A lot of people got to try Booker's Rye because I opened that bottle, including the manager who sold it to me for msrp.

No regrets, and I still have the empty to look at and reminisce.

 

One of the funniest stories I ever heard was when Freddie Noe mentioned that a certain elderly family member had been secretly grabbing bottles of Bookers Rye from the family stash to make manhattan's.  You only live once.  Drink your "good stuff" while you can!

That's an awesome post.  I agree with your overall sentiment wholeheartedly, but I am more likely to open a rare one if I have a backup bottle.  I think the main reason I haven't opened the BR is because my brother opened his first.  We take turns like that way with LE's back and forth sometimes.  I do have some super rare solo bottles with no backups like PVW15 and PVW20 that I have opened and enjoyed.   Haven't gotten to the 23 yet but since I've tasted it at a bar I don't feel like I'm missing that much. 

 

To Mr. Booker Noe!  🥃🥃

Finished off a WP 10yr. It was interesting, like watching a clumsy person trying to dance (I’m looking at you Elaine).  Interesting, because it had a lot going on (the dancing), but most of it, not good (the clumsy part). I doubt, I will restock my bar with another. 
 

Cheers

It’s kind of unfair to other bottles how good this is.
