I am so glad I don't like wheat, my rye preference has saved me so much money.

Glendronach are chill filtering their stuff now. Wonder why and also how this will impact the taste :/

Start remembering what you hear.

There's a couple posts on reddit about Glendronach dropping the non-chill filtered label. I just picked up a bottle of 12 and it still has it, so if it's the kind of thing to bother you, might be time to stock up while old bottles are still on the shelf.

Got my first vax shot a couple weeks ago and on the way home stopped off at a liquor store I don't usually find myself near. Snagged (well, overpaid for) a bottle of Elijah Toasted Barrel. I've been digging EC stuff lately -- a bottle of single barrel I picked up last fall and one of my local shop's store picks that they're selling for a very reasonable $30 -- and the Toasted Barrel is also really good (though more expensive and not as good as the B520 SB imo). I also picked up a bottle of their store pick Knob single barrel rye but haven't gotten around to opening and trying it yet.

This past weekend we went out for our first date night in quite a while and ended up at a bar we rarely go to, even in the beforetimes. They had a couple interesting things. I tried a pour of Weller Full Proof (the blue label); I'm kinda spoiled because I have a couple nearby shops that usually have Special Reserve in stock for MSRP and I keep a bottle or two around but it's been a while since I've seen any other Wellers (well, there was one CYPB bottle I ran across last fall but I wasn't willing to pay the stupidly high markup). The Full Proof was really good and 114 is about my ideal proof these days but I think I might prefer Antique. My wife said the Full Proof drank much hotter than (higher proof) OF1920 and I don't disagree. I also tried a pour of the 2019 George T. Stagg that I really, really liked. I'd only had Stagg Jr and while it's great, it's so high proof that it can be challenging. The GTS at ~117 was much more accessible and probably my favorite whiskey that I've tried in the last few months.

Honestly rye may be the single most expensive category these days. It's almost impossible to find decently aged rye at a reasonable price point, particularly if you aren't looking for Canadian stuff.

"A few well-heeled customers complained about seeing flecks of matter in our top-shelf offerings so we quietly started chill filtering everything but we aren't going to come out and say as much, and you can still pretend it's NCF if it makes you feel better."

I'm glad I've got a nice stock of the old stuff. As well as moving away from NCF the prices have shot up too since Brown Forman took over. There used to be some absolute bargains in the single cask range. Now, not so much.

Found some Wild Turkey 101 Rye at Total Wine for $21.50 per 750 ml bottle and instantly bought 3. Previously I've only ever seen the stupid 1 L bottles, always marked at $40, often sold out.

When I moved I lost any stores nearby that carried that. It's not the best rye but drat solid for the price.
