First, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.
So I am aware that there are many threads about WSR, wheaters in general, and the rye-wheater dichotomy. They all pertain to my question but cannot exactly answer it.
Background: I recently bought my first wheater in WSR. While I enjoy it for what it is, it doesn't do it for me in the same way that rye bourbons like WT101, FR1b, FRY, even cheaper ones like EW, do it for me (insert emoticon here). Also, I have tried Makers at a bar and found it decent but not worth the $28 it retails for here in College Town, Missouri. And probably most importantly, my budget does not really allow for exploration in VW or PHC territory.
Question: Should I end my bi-curious interest in wheaters? Is WSR a representative enough wheater that I can make my decision based on one fifth of the stuff? Searching for relevant posts, I saw that Chuck once said that Weller 12 was a good way of determining whether or not you like wheaters. Does the same hold for WSR?
