That Willet's Pot Still, trying to blend into the crowd, is one of my favorite "low proof" guilty pleasures.Had a little tasting at a friends house with a few bottles he did not have and a few I did not have.
For me EH Taylor won my 1st place vote with EC 18 a close second.
For him it was the EC 18 and the Angels Envy Rye which is really one of my favorites also that I can actually find on the shelf at about anytime.
Had a good time and a little bit of a headache this morning

Gave it a try this past weekend, and a definite thumbs up from the wife and I. She liked it per the recipe. On my second, a bit less syrup, a bit more OGD... pretty darned good!My wife recently got an old fashioned at a local bar that she loved, it was super sweet. Like tiny umbrella tropical beach drink sweet.
Not how I like an old fashioned, but I've been trying to duplicate it for her at home with no luck.
I saw this at Meijer and figured for $4, it's worth a shot.
1oz of mixer, 2oz of Bulleit rye, a dash of bitters, and a drunken cheery. She says it's better than the one at the bar...
