there's plenty of other ryes that i like better...but for $23, my palate likes bulleit.
CR comes with a fine felt bag though. . . OK, all my reels now have a cover.

I think the CR was in the mid-$30s, BH in under 30. CR is 90 proof, but I thought the Buellit was 95% Rye, while being 90 proof.

CR has maybe a single pour left. Patron is gone. Kirk and Sweeney is gone. It was a good birthday party!

I grabbed these instead. The Stagg Jr was a special allocation bottle and the CR Peach is limited to 2 bottles per customer.
The Stagg Jr. is good for a $50-60 bottle but I just have to laugh at the CR Peach craze.... I just don't get it. It is mediocre stuff but man is it apparently popular. It is not that hard to find around here though.

I’ll put the Stagg into the collection and crack it open someday. It might be next after I kill this bottle of Weller 12.
As for the CR Peach, I don’t drink it, I’ll use it for bartering and get something I really want. Apparently it’s a hot commodity in this region. I now have 4 bottles of it.

I can appreciate that use of the Peach for sure. I did similar with Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare since those are mediocre at best IMO, but they are highly sought after.

The Stagg Jr does well after a few weeks of breathing and some water (I prefer a single ice cube for that bottle). Probably nothing TOO special that you need to hype up though

ah you're right on the 95% rye vs 95 proof...but i still prefer it over most ryes that cost much more.

sounds like you definitely need a liquor run!


and FWIW, the thought of peach whiskey triggers my gag reflex.

When Crown Peach dropped up here in NH I saw that most stores had it in stock. Crushed out to grab a bottle and try.....some guy cruises around the state buying every bottle just ahead of me. I managed to pick up a few bottles but I'm not really impressed.

Now it's most stores regularly.

Bottoms up!

I'm not a big fan of smokey scotch but the sweet rum influence makes it so moreish. Too bad it's a limited edition, once it's gone, it's gone.

I'm Bermudian so I mess with the Black n Coke or Cock n Coke on occasion. 151 shots for party tricks, Black for rum and coke, gold for swizzles and old for sipping. I drink Cockspur bc it was my grandfathers favorite rum. He drank that straight from the bottle behind my grandmothers back lol.

Restocked my bar with Wolfhound Irish whiskey. Good stuff for $19.

Also discovered Pegasus City Cannoneer Amber. Best amber beer I've ever had. Local to the Dallas area.

I actually visited Tres Generaciones distillery out near Guadalajara. They have a new offering: The Pioneer. Will buy again! Smooth, but with a bit of bite/smoke, almost like getting chipotle instead of jalapeno in your salsa.

Bought a bottle for the first time in two weeks tonight. I went with my Go-To fav, P12.

Anyone know when tariffs will kick in?

What tariffs? Got a few new bottles scattered around. The ones I like the best are probably the angels envy rye, Elmer t lee, JD barrel proof store pick and the bumbu rum.

Love the Bumbu rum. But it's dangerous. Too easy to drink.
