    Good old PA liquor board can go f themselves. The fine wine and good spirits website has bookers rye as a lottery item next week.

    $600. This is double the retail price, is it not? Amazing that this state run monopoly is now charging secondary pricing. I would love for this lotto to flop and noone enter it

    Complete horseshit. The only way to legally get it is to pay secondary prices, only because there is no avenue for competition .

    On the other hand, had a pour of Booker's Rye last night, and hot damn is it good. (Like really Fucking good)

    Second this remark. I will have some tonight as I try (not very hard) to finish off my first of 6 bottles. Yes, 6...I know, I should have picked up a couple more, right?

    While talking about $300 bottles of Rye, your username is perfect .

    I don’t love either of these. Neither is bad, but both are fairly unremarkable. The dark rye is very unique with the port blend, but too sweet for my liking. The regular rye is super light with a lot of oak (makes sense since it was finished in new charred quarter casks).

    It’s been on sale at tipsys. So I grabbed a bottle. This bottle is still a little hot. Hoping it mellows out over time.
