Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey 110 proof

Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey 6 Year Old....$46.99

110 proof
Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey refuses to be forgotten. First produced in Maryland in the 1890s, the brand, along with the rest of the once-booming Maryland Rye industry, was shuttered by prohibition. The brand reemerged after prohibition and became the last standing Maryland Rye, as the rest of the industry's production had ceased. Now produced in Kentucky from extra-aged barrels stored in prime warehouse locations, Heaven Hill keeps this historic Maryland mark alive with this award-winning six year old, 110 proof offering.

Hey Paul
I'm really interested in getting a bottle of this but have bought like 5 bottle over the last 1-2 weeks. Is this like a limited release or have you had the shelves stocked before. Thanks for blogging

That's 5 bottle of rye. I buy any new bourbon you put out. Just wanted to clarify.

I just got in a case, I think that might be all we get, but let me double check that. Not sure if all of our stores got some or not.

At this point, he said we only get the 6 bottles, and 2 are already gone now. He will try to get us more.
