I Stand by the _

They had 3 . I bought 2 so when I left there was 1 left . Hills Liquors at the end of kendall . They get a lot of Buffalo Trace products so I stop by every now and then . I've gotten Elmer T Lee and Blanton's there a few times . They have 2 more locations too, one on Miller and another one on US 1 and 266th .Did you clear the shelf? If not, what store? I've been wanting to try that!
Don't know about that bottle specifically but I've had Elijah Craig store pick bottles that were around 13 years old . Age on a store pick is up to the store mostly. Checkers by 184th and US1 has very good store picks when they get them .Question on a store single barrel bottling. This is the description:
The Whistlepig 10 year rye program is a blend of at least 10 year old rye barrels distilled in Canada. We were able to taste through a couple different barrels from differing ages and decided to bring in this exceptional barrel of 16.5 year age. It has a rich cocoa quality with bruleed sugars and toffee running through the palate. The rye bite has rounded off quite nicely with age and leaves you with a lingering finish of bitter chocolate and cinnamon. Limited supply.
It says 10 yrs on the label but is actually 16.5 yrs old. I am a bit confused why that is. Maybe so Whistle Pig doesn't need to print out a different set of labels for these sorts of one off bottles? They are charging around $100, which seems extremely reasonable given the climate?
