    Re: Anyone try the new Mckenzie rye whiskey?

    Don't ask me why I'm reading the July edition of Martha Stewart's "Living" magazine , but there is a small blurb in the Great Find section that features a few small-scale distillers. Included, is the Finger Lakes Distilling, and their McKenzie Rye Whiskey. It's obvious Martha thinks the McKenzie Rye is "a good thing". She says: "McKenzie rye whiskey, which uses New York State grain, conjures the warm woodsy-ness of a campfire in the Finger Lakes region."

    With this positive review from Martha under his belt, Tom will next be appearing on Oprah! as she launches her "Oprah's Whiskey Club".

    And me? Well, I'm off to make some nifty home-made pillow covers from inexpensive throw rugs and linen artists' canvas!! (pg. 86) And, this Chicken and Andouille Gumbo recipe looks just perfect for Supper! (pg. 132)

    Joe, Don't forget to take a page from Emril LaGassy. While preparing the Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, he adds a bit of smokey spice in the form of a good rye whiskey. After several long pulls on the bottle to ensure the taste is right, he splashes about six ounces into the gumbo and then, BAM, he adds a bit of pepper.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    I think that's called, in culinary terms, 'self-marinating.'

    Duly noted Dan, and thanks!! I'm not sure I can keep it under 6 ounces, though!
    Cheers!

    Re: Anyone try the new Mckenzie rye whiskey?

    I got a bottle of this today after tasting a sample given to me by a fellow SB'er. I like this stuff alot, even in a mixed drink. The aging in sherry barrels give it a nice touch!

    Just ordered a bottle each of McKenzie Bourbon and Rye. Looking forward to the tasting as well as adding these as representatives of micro-distillery expressions to my collection.
