    Re: What rye are you enjoying? - Winter 2012

    I finished off my HW Double Rye! tonight. Enjoyed that bottle very much. Now on to a Ritt BIB or a Handy.

    Re: What rye are you enjoying? - Winter 2012

    Can't get the HW products in Texas, but I had some Double Rye while working in New Mexico last year (mail ordering liquor is a nice thing)..I like the Double Rye but I think the Bulleit is just as good. I understand HW is now distilling their own rye. Hopefully we will see some aged rye in a few years from them.

    While you may not have been able to find our products in the Lone Star State you soon will! We just appointed a distributor, and their first orders ship within the next week.

    I saw it at what I always thought was a reasonable local shop for $29.99 this week.

    Started with a Saz 18 and then a pour of Handy. There was nothing broken in either glass.

    TH Handy to finish things out. Man, I always love this whiskey. But, at times like now, it is simply Nirvana.

    Re: What rye are you enjoying? - Winter 2012

    I'm really hitting a stride with the HW 16yo Rocky Mountain Rye. The spice kicks you in the ass, but the more delicate flavors are easy to overlook. When I decide to do a formal tasting, I set aside a good 30 minutes to do nothing but look at, smell and taste a whiskey, and put pen to paper. When I'm drinking more casually I pay attention to the taste, but I'm usually doing something else at the same time that distracts me a bit from what's in the glass. Thinking a taste through all the way to a written conclusion, while not always the most laid back affair, allows me to draw pleasure from a good whiskey that I might overlook if I was involved with another activity.

    But anyway, right now I'm appreciating this 80% rye more than ever before.

    More and more a fan of Baby Saz every time I try it. Delicious. And didn't feel bad about opening one since there are now several in the bunker. No question in my mind it is my favorite rye. Better than WT, RITT, Jeffersons, etc. Handy can give it a run, but honestly considering the prices here, I can get 3 baby Saz for the price of an 18 at the same proof. Give me the baby Saz as far as I'm concerned!!!
