    Hello!

    Hello from Indiana! I've been properly and professionaly introduced to how, when and why whiskey is to be nosed, tasted and sipped.

    I've been enjoying this stuff ever since!

    I lean heavily on the rye whiskey - for a couple reasons.
    That's the spirit that was present when shown the proper etiquite AND I'm really satisfied with the rye whiskies I've had to date.

    Thanks for the great info StraightBourbon.com!!

    You're a lucky guy. Most of us had to take the Self-Study course.

    Just curious - how long has that been?

    I have to wonder what would have happened if it had been Tequila.

    For that matter (I'm dying to know): just what is the proper etiquette when drinking rye?

    Which ones have you had? How about Ritinhouse?

    Re: Hello!

    I also toured your photography website, and as I am just getting started in shooting for $$ I am amazed at some of your ideas. The photos are excellent.

    Re: Hello!

    Welcome Chuck. Your profile lists some pretty high-end Ryes. Check out the Rye forum, and have fun. BTW, while I love old Rye more than most, try out some Wild Turkey101Rye and RittBIB. Only by knowing our youth may we appreciate maturity.

    Cheers!

    Re: Hello!

    @ cracker - proper etiquite? Not slamming it back like this Hoosier used to do! Yes, I've had the 21 and 23 Rittenhouse, the 21 just edges out the 23 by a thin margin in my opinion.

    @ Scrub and unclebunk - thanks for checking out the photos

    @ WhiteDog - I'll check out the rye forum

    I've attached an image of one I really really enjoy!! Very impressed with Fritz Maytag's approach on recreating that 18th Century rye.

    Welcome, Chuck. Our Indiana contingent on SB.Com continues to grow. Almost, makes me want to move back to Ft. Wayne just to join the fun. I hope you enjoy your time here, and I look forward to hearing more as you continue your journey through Bourbonia.

    Oh good, I thought you were going to say you had to hold your pinky out or something.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm a big rye fan as well.

    Re: Hello!

    Welcome! I now live in Michigan, but I spent the first 25 years of my life in Central Indiana. I'm a 3rd generation graduate of Broad Ripple High School and I'm also an Anderson University alum., though my father, sister, brother-in-law and wife all went to Purdue.

    I'm in 'Naptown at least twice a year, so we should have a drink when I'm down there some time!
