    That is meaningless garbage everybody wins at those things.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    In all fairness, I will need to try it for myself before I make any firm judgments. However, I have not been a fan of Beam rye and I tend to deduct points for being NAS - "Patiently Aged" is not something I usually aspire to buy.

    I was looking for a way to describe it you hit it right on the head.

    Everybody gets a "medal"... not everybody wins.

    That being said, I still don't put a heck of a lot of stock in who the winner is.

    I might have been more impressed if Wild Turkey had entered the 101 Rye instead of the 81 and Knob Creek still won. But... we will never know.

    What a disgustingly awful selection of whiskey.

    Truthfully... I'm actually enjoying the Bulleit Rye. I'm a little puzzled by all of the people who said this stuff had a very "bourbon-y" taste to it.

    I took one sip, and could not mistake it for anything but a Straight Rye.

    As good as Sazerac? Not quite.

    A good Rye nonetheless? In my humble opinion, Definitely

    The one that everyone says has a very bourbony taste to it is Rittenhouse BIB not the Bulleit.

    I agree, Bulleit is good stuff. I know it's heresy, but I like it better than the Rittenhouse.
