    You have to know some history that is now more than a century old to understand the importance of words like "blended" and "straight" in the whiskey lexicon, as well as what those words actually mean. This knowledge is not obscure but you do have to make the effort to learn it. You also have to care if you come across on line as a moron or not. This just reflects the diversity of humanity, as it "it takes all kinds."

    Chuck,

    As you know, someone has to come across as an idiot on-line and I resent this neophyte Johnny Come Lately trouncing around in my domain.

    It's gonna take a lot more than simple derision of our Northern Neighbors and insulting their products to take that away from me.

    Consider this the throwing down of the cutlet!!

    Ed,

    I think your status here is unassailable.

    Thanks Chuck,
    I appreciate your support.

    Don't forget that run down no good Crown Royal line of Canadian Whiskey that has some of the best bourbon going into it. Diageo has a way with these things.

    How does Wistlepig size up with little Saz and big Saz?

    Different enough to almost be an apples-to-oranges comparison.

    Re: Wistlepig rye!

    WhistlePig (the original 10 yo bottling) seems to be getting a broader release. It was recently made available in Georgia and so I picked up a bottle based on the seemingly near universal aclaim for this rye (OK, that statement might be a little broad but it does seem to get good reviews!). I presume this is the same stuff that came out in 2010? The bottle appears to be the same. Perhaps they are sending out what is left in anticipation of the upcoming 11 and 12 yo ryes that are supposed to be coming (at higher prices naturally).

    In any case I look forward to giving it a try myself.

    Excellent product, very much a straight but in a lighter style than most U.S. rye I've had. The older whiskey, when released, should be even better.

    Thanks. I look forward to trying it and comparing it to the Jefferson 10yo rye and perhaps even the Pendleton 1910 rye which I definitely find to be a bit lighter than others like the Saz and Willet ryes.
