Can you describe these in basic terms? I'm not a fan of peat, and every scotch I've tried except one has peat influence. I know there are ones out there without it but keep striking out.

I picked up the 21 rye for $150. I'll probably go back for the 25 rye. Despite what I said above about the 21yr bourbon being overpriced, I'm still willing to try something once.

For what it's worth, I have someone locally offering either a Stagg '13 or Thomas Handy straight up for a Van Winkle 12. Seems pretty fair to me, but I'm new here so take that into consideration.
