Wonderful aroma, delicate & sweet, and disappointingly weak finish... wouldn’t pick another one up.

More bourbon than rye, enjoyable neat, but unremarkable.

This was quite the flight.

 

Also, this Rye Whiskey from Old Overholt Distillery in PA that was 14 years old when it was bottled in 1909.

I found a source for Pappy so lately I have been buying as much as I can; 10 year, Lot B and and a few bottles of the 20 year. It is so damn expensive that I hate to drink it. I have it once in a while with a very good cigar. Mostly I am drinking Buffalo Trace, Blantons and Rittenhouse Rye.

Retail or with a “dealer price adjustment”?

The Old Overholt was surprisingly good because it had aged really well. It still had a high alcohol content and a good bite to it and was still clear and not syrupy or degraded at all. It seemed like it was originally a bit more raw than a lot of the ryes I like today, but time was kind to it and overall thoroughly enjoyed it. The 1909 Old Overholt cost basically 2x what the Yamazaki 25 did for a pour though, so if you don't geek out on the history aspect of it a lot then maybe not worth it. This was at Milk Room in Chicago. They specialize in rare liquors from auction and have a nice list, worth checking out if you are in town.

$550 for the 10, $600 for Lot B and $1600 for the 20 year. My local liquor store had some Lot B, retail price $90. They had a lottery for it at retail price, I didn’t win.

I like Willett single barrel bourbon, but this one was pretty underwhelming, other than its overwhelmingly potent alcohol burn. Meh.

Hey guys, I'm looking for suggestions on a whiskey that is very smooth. I really only drink cognac XO's and a few 30 year rhums (for reference).

A buddy of mine only drinks whiskey and if I'm going to partake in such libation I'd rather one that goes down smooth etc.

I'd probably be willing to pay up to $300 for a bottle.

I wish I could find a more reasonable price but this stuff is hard to find.

You could try Elija Craig 23 Year Bourbon, there is not a lot of Bourbon in the 30 year range that I am aware of for $300.
