*sigh* $25,000 is a breathtaking amount. What's that, roughly $1,000 per dram?

I saw MSRP is $70. I’d love to see it for that price.

Anyone got thoughts on the Rabbit Hole Founder’s Collection Mizunara 15 Year? Looks intriguing until I saw the price (RRP $1500!). They must have a very high opinion of their own stuff.

Check out this for a little more info on Mizunara oak and why its price point is astronomically high.

A premium for the product makes total sense but $1500 is pretty steep for the retail price of any new bourbon (after market, sure). Plenty mizunara finished whisk(e)y that doesn’t approach this price.

This smells of something fierce; hope NYSLA suspends their liquor license.

I like both for different reasons but the gold is delicious. I imagine retail is somewhere around 100 were you to see it on a shelf so 199 isn’t awful.

Technically, it never hit the shelf. I spent a couple of hours driving around, calling dif places and dropping in to a few random spots.

Been awhile since able to link up with people so this weekend figured I’d crack up some Weller that been saving up to drink. Ended up doing a nice little flight. We threw in a Makers 46 later on to throw in another wheater. I forgot how much I loved the 12 since it’s such a rare occassion these days when I get to try it.
