    Ok besides tasting notes from something that old there has to be story behind a 1940 bottle of rye.

    I'm drinking two cans of green death AKA Mnt Ranier Ale...it's all I've got till payday. I'll probably treat myself to substantially higher quality beer. I'm probably going to buy a few bottles of Orval. It's a classic and I love it.

    Excellent Vesteroid!! Joe Davis is amazing. His bottles -- while pushing into the higher priced-range -- are really good deals IMO since he basically cellars them for you until they are ready to drink. When I tasted with him a few years back he told this story that the bank kept hounding him about his loans and saying: "You know Joe, you are in the business of selling wine not storing wine."

    All the best growers send their fruit to Joe. Just read through the wines he has available -- it is literally a central coast hall of fame of vineyards: pisoni, stolpman, fiddlestix, dierberg, clos pepe, Garys, purisma, etc.

    As for me, I have an '09 Bordeaux and before that had some Kinero Chard out of Paso from Anthony Yount.

    I collect bourbon (and some rye). A friend of mine (who also collects) came upon someone who had two sealed wooden crate cases (12 quarts in each) of two different ryes. An Old Overholt distilled in 1934 and bottled in 1940 and a BPR distilled in 1937 and bottled in 1941. He couldn't afford to buy them all, so he split them up with some other people like myself. So now I have a bottle of each.
