    Had a little nip of some ND Old Overholt, 86 proof. My rye literacy is pretty scant, but it's sort of like a marriage between the warmth and weight and bourbon-esque character of RittBIB and the minty, mineral rye nature of something like Bulleit Rye. Nice stuff.

    I like this thread!

    I was just saying in it's companion thread that I'm having some Vintage 21yr. It's been open a year, and unlike a wheater, I feel that this bottle has lost a step since I first opened it. Too much air?? I have been whittling down my open bottles to combat this type of issue.

    At one point in my "must try it all" phase, I had close to 100 bottles open at once. I've got it down to around 25.

    Just a splash of some Saz 18 (2004 release) and then I might have a Rye and ginger with some WT.

    Jefferson's 10 year rye. It's good stuff. I'm discovering that I'm a rye fan and have bypassing the bourbon night after night!

    Had a Jefferson's Rye on Friday - tasted like hairspray to me at the time, but for some awful reason I want more.

    Bought a Russell's Reserve Rye last night, which I'll open as soon as I kill an open bottle (I, too, have waaaaay too many bottles open). What do you rye lovers think of it?
