Misery / Old Overholt 11-Year Rye

Misery / Old Overholt 11-Year Rye

Bob and Brad kick off a mini-series of three films by director Rob Reiner with a Halloween special: his 1990 thriller Misery. They discuss some killer performances by Kathy Bates and James Caan, as well as how Reiner's comic timing is a huge benefit to making an effective suspense thriller.

Meanwhile, they try a rye that was exclusively released to the Ohio and Pennsylvania markets: Old Overholt 11-Year. We'd hoped that Beam Suntory would continue releasing this, albeit in a limited capacity, but it looks like this was a one-time release. given how difficult-to-find this whiskey will become, is it worth the price?
