    I am going to purchase this tomorrow and post a review. Thanks for reminding me that it was on my list. [​IMG]


    Please do. I know you know rye far better than I so I'd like to hear your thoughts.. I may pick up another bottle tomorrow for my bunker.

    gnatty, nice! Seriously that's an awesome collection, and I am no mean judge. Tell me though, have you had the Vintage rye? I have the 18 and was looking for another opinion....

    Some of the recent rye finds:

    Have my doubles stored in a storage closet, so these are only active bottles. Our bar is a corner affair that closes, so I took these out and set them on a piece of furniture to snap pics, I don't leave my booze sitting out..


    Noice!

    Thanks, I appreciate that. I have not had the Vintage Rye. My local liquor store has a 20 and 23 year old, but I have not tried either. I didn't care for the Vintage bourbon initially, but it has grown on me. Let me know if you like it and I may try it.

    Cracked into the Michter's bourbon last night, and was reminded of how unique its flavor is. Has got to be a boat load of corn in the mashbill, since that part of the flavor is so distinct, but pleasantly so.

    I picked up a small 375ml bottle of Eagle Rare 10yr tonight. For the price, I find it excellent. Smooth and flavorful.

    I thank everyone here for the indirect recommendation.

    Excellent collection Gnatty. I am pleased to see all the Michters. They make a great product consistently. Wish they had a wider distribution range though!

    Never have I seen so much good bourbon in one place.

    Gnatty, or anyone else for that matter, I got some of the Noah's Mill pictured here this weekend and I was looking for others impressions. I like it for the most part, but I think its rather oaky. Anyone else?

    I am not sure I would describe it as oaky, but it definitely has a much heavier flavor than most bourbons, I almost want to call it maple sugar. I never add water to this, just a few ice cubes and I am good to go. One of my favorite bourbons by far, and I'd put it a close second to my all time favorite, the Pappy Van Winkle 2o year old.

    Anyone tried Old Bardstown Estate 10 year old?

    Picked up a bottle on a whim tonight. Goddamn it's good! $20.99 for 750ml.

    I suck at describing flavors, but it's quite smooth for a 101 proof and it is good neat, with a splash, and on the rocks. Just finished my third glass and it's kicking my ass too.

    I really recommend picking some up.
