"And for the old-school whiskey drinker?

Lionís Pride Dark Rye is a must. Unlike any other rye whiskey on the market, the complexity and flavor of rye shine through with notes of spiced apple and butterscotch."

Has anyone tried this rye from Koval (Chicago)?

Came across these reviews of both the Lion's Pride Rye and Lion's Pride Dark Rye

If the price is right they appear interesting...would like a taste test.

Take a pass, Jono. I've had 'em both. That reviewer must not have ever tried real Rye Whiskey.

That is disappointing....were they "bad" or just mediocre?

Really yeasty and malty tasting in an underaged way. The 80pr also didn't help. If tasted blind, I would have said, "Under-aged micro!" The retail in Wisconsin is $50.

Probably not much expectation from the new bourbon coming out 12/5.....

I saw the Lions Pride Rye on the shelf today, but I passed it up. It's making the rounds for sure.
