Overall: I am quite impressed by this expression My only other experience with Lock Stock & Barrel was their 20 Year, which was phenomenal. I know I went from an extreme to a lesser known offering, but like I mentioned, I am impressed with this bottle. What's inside this gorgeous blacked-out bottle is a blend of delicious Rye from the US and Canada. The marriage is blended perfectly. At around $85, this is a well recommended pick-up if you see it. A great porch sipper!
