    If you follow Mark and your palate aligns with his then it is worthy to know. Otherwise, numerical ratings are just a number. Really not much different than random bloggers offering whiskies of the year and other such platitudes.

    Not in Texas yet..guess it will be the summer before we see it. Although Cowdery did not love it and he isn't a Beam-hater, so I may wait for a few more reviews.

    Like very much but, true, not love. It has the same fault as all of the Beam ryes: timidity.

    Was at WhiskeyFest last night, and sneaked away from my table to do some quick sampling. Was really hoping to finally try this...only to have Fred Noe tell me, "We poured the last of it five minutes ago".

    A swing and a miss!

    The program listed a "Single Barrel Reserve Rye" to be poured during the VIP hour. I made it a point to stop by the booth early on, but they kept picking up the KCSB bourbon when I mentioned it. So I had a taste of the rye. Yeccccchhhhhhh! I'm sure it could be an acquired taste, and it had a definite rye flavor, but it really tasted exactly like the Beam Rye with a bit more wood. Tasted among the other VIP pours it was really disgusting.

    It presented an off flavor that was really gross, but I could see people who don't know what good rye tastes like acquiring a taste for it.

    I noticed Whistle Pig at a store here in Columbia SC for the first time the other day. The manager said it was a new product for his store.
