    Re: A new Rye from Beam?

    They may have a problem with placement. I saw this in a liquor store in Carmel, IN last week, sitting there among all the "old-timey" bottles of bourbon and rye, right where the "exotic" vodka drinkers aren't going to find it, and where the dedicated bourbon and rye drinkers are going to find it and be unimpressed.

    Re: A new Rye from Beam?

    Yes, but if a vodka drinker thinks, for whatever reason, "I'd like to try a whiskey," their eye will go right to it.

    Re: A new Rye from Beam?

    I think many of you know how much the cocktail hounds love Rye, and it appears that (ri)1 has especially touched the nerves of one blogger to new found creative heights:

    While I'm sure many of us wouldn't agree with the Bourbon assessment, I found it to be a brilliant post! Another interesting thing of note is that a Beam representative made a post in the comments section, which I've NEVER seen them do here...

    Re: A new Rye from Beam?

    I had this today and was pleasently surprised. It was sweet up front with a spicy (but short) finish. It was a good mix of flavors and the proof was just right for drinking neat. I still like Rittenhouse better, but this is still something I would love to drink regularly (unforunately for that price there is lots out there that is better).
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    The only thing I know about [ri]2 & [ri]3 is that Cowdery said that Beam "suggested" that there will some in the future.

    Re: A new Rye from Beam?

    I asked a Beam PR person if that was intended as a joke or if they really are planning subsequent expressions and she said she was pretty certain it was sincere. That's all I know.

    I agree! I wasn't familiar with this blogger, but he will be on my list of regulars. As many of the commentors on his post wrote, he is perceptive, and a fine writer as well.
