Lucked out today. Very very happy. Havent seen Van Winkle Rye ever in my life.


Lucky indeed. The entire state of Pennslyvania recieved 3 bottles of the rye in the 2012 allocation. I have heard it called the unicorn of whiskey. Rumored to exist but never seen

The Rye cost me $85. First time I every saw it. The limit of any VanWinkle product was 2 bottles per person. I passed on the 15 and 20 and took the Rye instead along with the 23.

Made a trip up to Kentucky this weekend for an event and so I made a pilgrimage to the Party Source while in the area. Also popped into a few other stores along the way. Never know what you might find!

I had reserved a bottle of Barry Crocket Legacy Irish Whiskey at the Party Source just to be sure it would be there. Spendy but I decided I needed a present!

IMG_6875_1.jpg IMG_6877_1.jpg

Also picked up a variety of whiskies there and at other spots along the way to include:
Glendronach 15yo Revival - hadn't seen it locally and wanted to give it a try to broaden my scotch appreciation.
CEHT Warehouse C Tornado Survivor bourbon - getting scare and they aren't going to be making more so I picked up another bottle just for fun.
Lot 40 Canadian Whisky - A surprise find and an impulse buy. Just named Canadian whisky of the year on Whiskey Advocate so I decided what the heck!
Willet 8yo barrel strength bourbon - Willet is always a crap shoot but they had an open bottle to taste and i thought it was good. Hard to go wrong with 8yo cask strength bourbon from a major distiller even if you don't know which distiller it was. Heaven Hill or maybe LDI/MGP I suspect but don't know for sure.
George Dickel rye - another LDI/MGP product that has been given the Tennessee whisky treatment with maple charcoal filtering but a good price at under $20 and a few bartenders have said good things about it.
Abraham Bowman port finished bourbon - the pleasant surprise find of the trip as it is a new limited edition bottling. So I got 2!
Greenore 15yo - Another impulse buy to add to the Irish collection. Don't typically see it locally.
Old Portero - like the Greenore it was an impulse buy because I rarely see it in my area.

IMG_6882_1.jpg

Also a few odds and ends that caught my eye.

IMG_6885_1.jpg

Bittermen's Amere Sauvage, Tempus Fugit Creme de Cacao and El Massaya Arak (another impulse buy)

I really need to improve my impulse control...

You could open the west coast franchise and I would be happy to open the east coast franchise (well, southeast perhaps)! If I though I could make a living at it I might consider it!

On a practical note, what do you use El Dorado 5 for? I've realized that most of my rums are in the $30 range and I could do with a cheaper bottle for something mixed with lots of other ingredients

I use El Dorado 5 in tiki cockails. Recent uses: Ancient Mariner, Navy Grog. It's a really good deal at less than $20 a bottle.

Made a trip up to Kentucky this weekend for an event and so I made a pilgrimage to the Party Source while in the area.

Ha! You do that too? My wife and I have been to the Party Source twice since we learned about it's existence. Both times we went with a friend of ours and stayed overnight in Newport and made a weekend out of it. When we told locals why we were in KY, they would just stare in disbelief. "Don't you have liquor stores in Pennsylvania?" "Well, yes, but let me explain that to you." Anyway, on the first trip I fell in love with the vermouth aisle. I love just being able to say that--the vermouth aisle. The Party Source is my only practical source for Dolin, Bonal, Cocchi Americano, etc., and allowed me to try Cinzano for the first time (we have it in PA now). It is also the only practical way I can get Lemon Hart 151 and other fun rums. I usually pass on single malts because their prices are surprisingly way higher that PA's on most of them. We're planning to return there in September.

As for what I bought recently, last weekend I made a trip my favorite local specialty store and replenished some things I've been out of for a while:
Green Chartruese
Cherry Heering
Smith & Cross Rum
Cinzano
Carpano Antica Formula
Ramazzotti
Broker's Gin

Ineed I do! Even though the Atlanta area options seem to be broader than PA (I can get most all the things you mentioned locally) there are still things available at TPS that I can't get or at least can't get as easily.

But I think the taxes are higher in KY on liquor than Atlanta (which surprised me) so I tend not to buy things I am sure i can get at home.

Still, it is worth a trip if I am in the area as far as I am concerned!

I hit up one of the Oregon Liquor Control Commissions finer stores today to stock up on some of the more inexpensive Bourbons available. Some of these are "Special Listings" meaning they're not widely available in Oregon and you may never see them again. With the exception of the Dickel Rye they're all good to excellent. The Old Charter 10 is quite nice and the real sleeper in the group.

 

The Dickel Rye is the foulest bottle of whisky I've ever purchased. Not a hint of rye spice, rather it reeks of petrochemical smells. I don't believe there is any mechanism for returning defective liquor in this state, but if there was I'd do it in a heartbeat. I've included OLCC inventory codes and prices.

Interesting. I acquired a bottle of the Dickel Rye recently and while it wasn't anything extraordinary it was not bad. Typical LDI/MGP rye that was perhaps a bit sweeter and maybe with a hint less of the typical LDI minty/dill sort of taste.

 

Yesterday I was finally able to acquire a couple of bottles of the rereleased Tanqueray Malacca gin. Now I just have to figure out what to try first.

I retasted the Dickel Rye today with some friends. After my rant yesterday I researched it a bit and realized it had been finished in Tennessee. It reminds me of Jack Daniels and the other Dickel Products. If you like Jack Daniels, this is the rye for you. I don't and the rye tended to exaggerate the qualities I don't care for. I do agree that it has less of the minty/dill thing.

 

We tasted it against the Bulleit Rye that is the same raw rye spirit to start with as well as a bottle of Rittenhouse BIB. The Rittenhouse was everyone's favorite by far. The Bulleit was a ways back in second and way back was the Dickel.

 

For the Money the Rittenhouse is the way to go in my book. It's getting harder to find, but when I find it I stock up.

For the Money the Rittenhouse is the way to go in my book. It's getting harder to find, but when I find it I stock up.

 

Rittenhouse is often a favorite rye but it is a very different too. It is a 51-ish percent rye whiskey with a lot of corn to give it some "body" and sweetness. That helps balance the rye spices and It is far more like a bourbon than the LDI/MGP ryes.

 

The LDI/MGP rye is a 95% rye, 5% malt mashbill with no corn at all. The Dickel has been charcoal filtered after aging (which is a bit different from the regular Dickel and Jack Daniels whiskies which get charcoal filtered prior to going into the barrel I believe) and I think is what reduces the typical minty character of Bulleit and other LDI/MGP ryes. Bulleit is not charcoal filtered. 

 

I do like that it gives another option but can see how if you don't like Tennessee whiskey in general you might not like the Dickel rye.

My wit is drier than my Martini, which is both not saying much and saying not much.

 

What does Malacca taste like? Sweeter, more fruit, less juniper? I wonder what people who paid big bucks for the "last remaining bottles" think about it's reintroduction.

Likewise.

And yeah, it's sweeter, softer, less fruity (citrusy), spicier and has a sort of thicker mouthfeel to it. I will sit down and compare the lot at some point.
A lot of the cocktails at the launch paired it with Allspice Dram and Bitters to bring out the spice. There was a Martinez styled drink that was pretty good and some sort of sour with apricot liqueur that I believe Erik Lorincz was responsible for.

I'm glad I've a bottle and I feel lucky, but I can't say it's a must-own just yet. That may change as I mix with it more. I've made a 2:1 martini with it that satisfied me but I certainly prefer Special Dry with tonic. (Fever Tree)

I wonder what people who paid big bucks for the "last remaining bottles" think about it's reintroduction.

 

​Speaking with folks who tasted some of the 2001 product against the new released, they said the old stuff had definitely lost something over the intervening years, and that they would not at all recommend hording the new make. Or, perhaps the new stuff is just more assertive...

 

And yeah, it's sweeter, softer, less fruity (citrusy), spicier and has a sort of thicker mouthfeel to it. I will sit down and compare the lot at some point.

 

When it first came out, I initially thought to compare the Malacca with Leopold's (two 80 proof gins with what I expected to be similar lower-juniper profiles), but the Malacca surprised me with its lack of citrus notes. It is also certainly spicier, and I found it to be plenty dry/hot for 40% abv (glad that the lower proof is not an impediment to mixing). It does extremely well in Martinez-like applications. I've quickly worked my way through about half the bottle I was given at the release, so I was very pleased to find they had changed their mind and released some for off-premises sales in IL. Yesterday, I picked up another bottle, as well as some Cocchi Americano Rosa. They played nicely together at 50/50 with a couple dashes of Regans' and Bittercube Lemon Tree bitters.

Got the 100 proof "Hawaiian Moonshine", known locally as "Okolehao" (which means iron bottom, or more precisely bottom iron, to describe the rounded bottom iron three legged pot first used to distill the spirit in the 1790's), and the Okolehao liqueur on my recent trip to Hawaii. The liqueur is very sweet and tastes like a coconut rum (both are cane sugar based products) but the 100 proof Okolehao spirit is quite interesting. It is flavored with the root of the Ti plant and tastes a bit like a sweet tequila with an interesting vegetal component. Quite good on its own as well as a mixer. But not readily available outside of Hawaii that I know of except online (the liqueur may be in a few places in California).


Thanks for reminding me about the okolehao. I have a bottle of the liqueur that I use in tiki drinks, including one that I think is in Remixed - the Polynesian Paralysis. It's really flavorful/funk. I don't remember a coconut taste though, I will have to check.

 


I will be curious to hear what you think. It would certainly work in tiki-dom. But it is quite sweet and if not coconut then some sort of tropical fruit taste.

But I definitely thought the new Okolehao 100 proof spirit to be a superior concoction although I can only presume it is much closer to the what the true okolehao would have tasted like.

 

Hey FP!

 

Did you ever give the okolehao liqueur a try in any cocktails? I was curious if you found a good use for it!

Hey FP!

No, just the one that I mentioned already, the Polynesian Paralysis. Jeff Berry has a link for a drink with okolehao liqueur here (Brice Ginardi's Ohana Mai Tai which I haven't tried it but looks good at least on paper). Thanks for reminding me; Tiki Season is coming! (at least in San Diego).
