Bit of a niche deal. Pikesville Straight Rye. Won quite a few awards and got Jim Murray's best rye and 2nd best overall whiskey 2016.

Bargain for this. Out of stock quite a few places. Part of their black friday deal until 28th.

Annoyingly free delivery is £60, so either have to pay for deliver or add something else. (Cheapest seems to be tonic water).

"This 6 year old 110 proof was released in 2015, receiving a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, an "Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation" from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and was named the Second Finest Whisky in the World in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2016 as well as the World's Best Rye Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2016 - Heaven Hill also won Distiller of the Year at the Icons of Whisky 2016!"

This award for 2nd best whisky in the world... I assume it is an American award... is it a bit like their baseball World Series that Amercan baseball teams always win because, um, only American baseball teams enter it?

Nope. 2nd best overall whiskey.

I wouldn't put too much stock in Jim Murray's opinion though. He's just one guy. Unless you're him, you're unlikely to agree with his opinions 100%. I've had another he voted best and wasn't impressed.

True. Won other things as well though:

Plus, I bought a bottle and it's delicious!

Someone buy a bottle and then we can all drink it debating whether it is or not

Is it as good as grouse ?

^ some people will be spitting out their whisky reading that.

It isn't at that price now 😣
