    Re: What rye are you enjoying? - Winter 2012

    I'm comparing 1 oz pours of WT 101 Rye vs. Riit BIB rye. I've had the Ritt before, but hadn't tried the WTR until the "rush" on the board here. I think I Ritt better so far, but will post results 2 oz's from now.

    Sipping on a recent Baby Saz. I think it may be better at 90 proof than my '10 Handy is, cut to the same proof.

    Ahem... and the verdict is? Can you include some tasting notes, too?

    I've been drinking the WT 101 almost everynight lately. I find many ryes to be too "thin", making the spice seem unbalanced. This is not the case with WT. Also, I've been drinking it with a small splash of water from a rocks glass instead of a Riedel or Glencairn. After about ten minutes in the glass, I pick up a sort of cream and brown sugar thing along with the spice that I don't in my normal tasting glass. I feel like its a drinking whiskey vs tasting whiskey if that makes any sense, and very enjoyable indeed.

    Ritt BIB tonight. My taste is a bit off from congestion, but it is still tasting fine tonight.

    I recently cracked open my RH BIB and THH. They have such different tastes. Obviously the RH is smoother,but the THH has alot of flavor.

    It still doesnt compare to PVFR Rye. I got spoiled because it was my first rye whiskey. I have been comparing to that ever since.

    Ritt BIB tonight. Good, solid pour. Also, I recently discovered that they have this stuff coming out their ears around St. Louis. Makes me jealous.

    Picked up a baby Saz today. I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy this.
