    Re: 2010 Thomas Handy BTAC...reviews

    Except the rye fans, of which I am one.

    I like the 2010 Handy, but so far I've only had it at barrel proof. I guess I need to try it with water next. So far, the only barrel proof whisk[e]ys I've liked dead straight are the George T. Stagg and the Aberlour a'bunadh.

    I loved the '09, but I've yet to open any of the '10. I think I only ended up with 2 bottles, so I'm going to hang onto them for a while.

    For what it's worth, I always read the Rye forum, as I'm always hungry for Rye discourse. Also, I've not had the 2010, but I hope to soon. I had some 2008 last night: still love it.

    So why is that Sazerac Rye thread still sitting in "Other American Whiskey?" That should be moved, as well, IMHO.

    Because, Mr. Smarty Pants, I hadn't seen it yet; thanks for pointing it out.

    - Putting topics in the right forum makes doing "research" much easier.

    Re: 2010 Thomas Handy BTAC...reviews

    So most of you guys seem to think that Handy 2010 is similar to 2009? I still have not had 2010.

    I'm doing a side by side of 2008 vs. 2009, and my impression is exactly what I've read on this board. 2009 is the most Bourbon-like of any Handy release. As I keep going back and forth, there's no question that 2008 handy is superior to 2009, IF YOU WANT A RYE. If I tasted 2009 blind, I would declare it a great Rye-heavy Bourbon. Based on nose and palate, I'd never guess that it's a st8 Rye.

    If 2010 is like 2009, I'm gonna snap up that last bottle of 2008 Handy I've been eying on a shelf for $52.99, and skip the 2010.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on this? Anyone have 2008/2009/2010 all open?

    I'm kinda new to rye, but have had the '08, '09 and '10 Handys. The '09 and 10 are quite similar. The 10 seems maybe just a little more spirity than the '09 and the '08 is a somewhat different beast altogether, deeper spice. I love 'em all. But there's no way a Handy could be confused with a high rye bourbon. No way.

    Cheers!
