    Rye tasting in Cincinnati, OH

    Howdy all! I haven't been posting lately, but it's been about a year since the last whiskey tasting so I thought I'd plan another.

    In addition to whiskey folks, I've invited Cincinnati beer folks as well.

    The plan:

    Saturday, January 5th starting around 4 pm going until midnight or so.

    I'll arrange the tasting to compare similar products depending on what we have. I plan to try 4 rye whiskeys side-by-side with several breaks for food/water. My wife and I will have chicken tortilla soup as well as crockpot meatballs. We'd like people to bring a dish or some sort - rye whiskey related dishes would be even better. I've listed the ryes that I'll offer as well as the ones I'd like to see there. I'm requesting that everyone bring at least one bottle to share. I have a bunch of snifters, but if you'd like better whiskey glasses, please bring your own.

    Ryes I have:
    VWFRR
    2012 Saz 18
    WT 101
    Rittenhouse BiB 100
    HW Rendezvous (Barton 16 yr + 6 yr LDI)
    Bulleit
    Pendleton 1910 Canadian rye

    Other ryes I'd like to see there:
    Fleischman's Rye (Barton product; should be getting this from a WI friend)
    Whistle Pig [$74]
    Jefferson's 10 year [$25]
    Baby Sazerac [$27]
    BTAC Handy [$70]
    Willett 4 year [$38]
    Smooth Ambler Old Scout Rye [$38] - Scott K. will bring this
    HW Double Rye [$34]
    E.H. Taylor Rye [$68]
    Knob Creek Rye [$35]

    Only available in Canada (as far as I know) - one of the beer guys is working on these:
    Alberta Premium (5, 25, or 30 year) [$22-50]
    Alberta Spring [$22]
    Lot 40 [$38]

    Please let me know if you plan on coming, which whiskey you'll bring, and an idea of what type of dish you'll bring. Prices listed above are TPS prices or Canadian whiskey blog prices. (You're welcome to bring unlisted whiskey as well; just add them above - try to avoid a ton of similar aged LDI ryes though.) Also, we have a few places to crash in the house so let me know if you intend on staying overnight. I'll send PMs with my address and other information as the date draws nearer. Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Sounds great, as long as the weather cooperates Barb and I will be thre.

    I'll bring a HW21 YO and a 2006 Handy and if I've got a few open ryes at the time, I'll bring 1 or 2 with me too.

    Look forward to seeing everyone again.

    I am off that Saturday so I'll tentatively offer to pitch in. Will discuss with the wife and go from there.

    Re: Rye tasting in Cincinnati, OH

    ...as the swarm (of Smart cars) descends on Cincinnati. My program just got a 1 gallon coffee carafe; I'll try to get that so we can make sure the booze doesn't put anyone to sleep. It looks like we'll have at least 3-4 beer guys there as well. I'm interested to see the differences in opinions among the different groups. Unfortunately I don't know any scotch people - with the love that ryes get among scotch drinkers, I'd be interested to see what they prefer as well.

    Anyway, I'll update that list when more people let me know what they're bringing so we don't have too much overlap. Cheers!

    Hi Roger,

    I plan on attending, provided the weather cooperates. Not sure of my bottle line up right now, but will let you know.
