Each month, Flight Club selects a club-endorsed “Pick of the Month.” The parameters on the Pick of the Month are (a) locally available in Wichita, Kansas (b) under $40 and (c) something believed to be a good value or limited availability at the moment. We invite everyone (Club members or not) to break open a bottle and provide comment and feedback.
On certain occasions, we find local deals that are too good to pass up. This month, we present such a deal, albeit one that many of our Club members were able to sample at our January Maker’s Mark tasting.
This bottle originally MSRP’ed for more than $60, a price that we might all agree is too high. At our now current local price of less than $35, we think it is a winner that should be added to your collection.
We encourage everyone to pick up a bottle and give us your thoughts.
