    Help recommend a Rye

    Of the Rye's available here in Michigan and considering I don't want to pay over $30 a bottle which of the these would you recommend and why? Do either of these have higher Rye content than the others?

    JIM BEAM RYE
    SAZERAC RYE-6 YR
    WILD TURKEY RYE

    Thanks

    Doug

    Agreed. Next year the GT Rye should be in stores. Based on the bottle I have I would put that at #4.

    Baby Saz

    I need to try the WT again, but I know I don't care for the Beam.

    Re: Help recommend a Rye

    Not a big rye drinker at the moment just learning and tasting as many as I can.

    1. Baby Saz (if you can find a single barrel bottling I'd go for that)
    2. Rittenhouse BIB (if available in your area)
    3. Wild Turkey

    2. Baby Saz
    38. Wild Turkey
    100. Beam


    I've given the WT rye a bunch of chances, and all I get out of it is the feeling that I got punched in the throat.

    (#1 for me is Rittenhouse BiB, but that wasn't on your list.)

    Some people enjoy that sort of thing.

    Ritt BiB is not available in Michigan. For some reason the 21 & 23 y/o Ritts are. Go figure. The joys of control states.

    Re: Help recommend a Rye

    If you can get your hands on some Abraham Bowman Rye (maybe you can only get this in the Commonwealth of Virginia?) you will be a happy person.

    It's in the high $60's which makes it a bit rich for me, but IMO it's pretty sophisticated and its age shows.

    I agree with the order and drinking listerine is on the list before any Beam rye.

    Re: Help recommend a Rye

    Thanks for the help guys!

    For those of you that ranked WT #1 and Saz #3, what is #2?
