    Re: What rye are you enjoying? - Winter 2012

    Willett Single Barrell: 5 year, 110 proof.

    Just opened this bottle.

    Color: honey
    Nose: minty, oaky
    Taste: Dry, oaky with a long deep minty-rye finish

    I'm really enjoying this. Very high quality rye. Nice price also.

    I'm not calling WT101 Bourbon "bad," I simply prefer their Rye most of the time.

    Up visiting family in Wisconsin, found a bottle of Stephen Foster, not too bad for an 80 proof.

    Drinking some more Stephen Fosters, apparently I really like it considering I drank half a liter last night!

    Finishing up the evening with Rittenhouse BIB...it don't get much better even though this time tomorrow, I should have a Saz 18 to add to the family.

    Found a bar that serves all of the buffalo trace stuff including VW rye. $13 for a 1.5 oz pour but worth it at the bar...really enjoyed the nose and finish on this rye.

    The usual suspects:

    Rittenhouse BIB
    Pikesville 80 (So cheap, so tasty!!)
    Old Overholt 80
    Wild Turkey 101 rye
    Russell's Reserve 90
    Oh, and Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Anyone else notice a big variation in Ritt BIB? My current bottle is all cotton candy and marshmallow, while the previous bottle was dusty cherries. Both are great, and I've pretty much decided that Ritt is going to be my standard pour, but it's crazy to me how different these are. What are these, small batch? Both should be 2011 bottlings.

    Vintage 21, begins very woody, but opens up after a few minutes to beautiful combination of sweetness and spice, very rich for a rye.
