    In the half price bin for $16. I'll try it neat, but its main use will be for a Manhattan, Old Fashion, and maybe a Whiskey Sour.

    Nooooooooo! :(

    Got whiskey of the year a few years back. It's not that good, but it is very nice. Smooth, very smooth, and definitely buttered rye bread notes. A lot less spicy than most other rye's, IMO.

    So you're saying it might be good enough for sipping (or you just don't car for mixed drinks) ? I just assumed it'd be a no brainer for mixing at that price.

    Me? I would definitely sip this neat and enjoy the hell out of it. I also wouldn't use it as a mixer because IMO, it's sort of delicate. This however, is coming from someone who sips these things neat up to 130 proof sometimes. YMMV. I would suggest at least trying it neat or with a few drops of water. If you do, definitely look for the buttered rye bread.

    Thanks for the info and tip. I always put a few good drops of water in my bourbon and whiskey these days, definitely beneficial. I think I'll bring it on my vacation next week. Booked a suite at the Marriott Palm Springs for next weekend.

    Reshelled my Westone W40's.

    The audio tubes on the old shell clogged with earwax. Apparently Westone won't service any IEM model that costs less than $1k.

    Was able to find a service that reshelled the drivers as custom IEMs.
