Do you find that you enjoy the softer or spicier flavors?
I would also give the EC12 another try. Or, at least another older Heaven Hill offering...they can be tasty, most of the time.

Call your local distributor...not the liquor store, but the people they get their stuff from...and they should be able to direct you to some stores that have ordered it from them. Ask for customer service and tell them the label and size bottle you are attempting to locate. They should be able to pull it up on their computer, quickly.
Good luck with your hunt.
ps. if you like rye...check out Old Forester(any proof), Wild Turkey Rye and Rittenhouse Rye.

If your bottle has an '03 bottle date and you believe it to be 15 years old...then that would be juice made at the SW site by United Distillers in 1988. If it is really closer to 10 years...then you are probably getting juice that was made at Bernheim soon after they remodeled the site.

I haven't seen this whiskey around much... so I bought it purely on scarcity and reputation. I'm also a big fan of the Van Winkle 12 yr Lot B. So It will be an interesting comparison for me.

I'd rather they went less with packaging, and BT's offering next month for $350 is a lot o' packaging. But when these guys are proud of something they sometimes think it deserves a better package? or maybe their marketing guys think that will help move it? Either way, it's probably a good drink if they are that proud of it. But yea, tradition is moving slow .independant wrote:...The WT tradition is a hard sell. At 131.00 I have a problem with it. Why was WT's 15 yo American Spirit only 80.00 and this is a year younger and 50.00 more. I'll tell you all why the packaging.
