Big Pimpin' With Jefferson's Rye

Now in stock - something that the guys from SWS brought in and convinced me to buy.  I don't know much about whiskey, but they told me this was good so I thought we should get it.  :)

Jefferson 10 Year Old Straight Rye $37.99 - From the same source as Whistlepig's Canadian rye, this 10 year old from Jefferson's is half the price and half as rich.  More supple than anything currently available from the LDI-purchased ryes (Willett, Bulleit, Templeton, Redemption, etc) and more peppery than anything older.  While it drinks nicely as a sipper, this is the high-end cocktail mixer we've been waiting for during the great rye whiskey shortage.

I'm not sure how long this is going to last because they only let me have 36 bottles, when I originally ordered much more.  It's quite nice and makes a lovely drink.  I played around with it last night while mixing cocktails and thought it presented quite well.
