  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

I tried a pour of this, and although much better than black label, not sure why it seems to be allocated all to hell. Assume it is the intersection of Jack Daniels name recognition and fact that it has an age statement. Don't get me wrong, it was a good whiskey, but not so good that I've never even seen a bottle on the shelves!

With you 100%. Quite a good pour but must be super low production, only reason i can think of for the allocation scheme.

Even the 10 year seems to be a unicorn. That said, I would put the 12 up there (totally my own assessment of value to ME) with Booker's in terms of what I'd be willing to pay, but at least Booker's is typically somewhat available, if not aways reliably..

I managed to find a 10 year in Vegas while we were out there for under 100 so I picked it up. The nice gentleman apologized profusely that the 12 was gone but he also said he wouldn't let the store price it "according to the internet" lol. I offered him a pour of the 10 after I paid and he laughed and thanked me but politely declined, said pay it forward.

Needless to say that's my first stop from now on when we make our annual trip.

@Don L it’s fantastic bourbon if you can find it for MSRP.

Some shops like to mark it up but for $59-$69 it’s a delight.

Heaven Hill is my favorite distillery because their bourbons are usually superb for fair prices
