    Re: What ages better Wheat or Rye.

    Said Stotz, "... The Pappy 20 rye is so huge that at least I have a hard problem drinking it very often. That doesn't mean it's not phenomenal, just that it's too big for an everyday kind of pour, regardless of expense. Definitely a special occasion tipple..."

    Very true. There really *can* be too much of a good thing. Like some wonderful, ultra-rich desserts, the Pappy 20 (and a select few others) is just too much for everyday consumption.

    Re: What ages better Wheat or Rye.

    Rye whiskey which contains at least 51% rye matures very well at around 5 years. There is no reason to keep American whiskies in the barrel for more than 8 years unless you want to play the age game. However I must admit there are some nice Bourbons out there 10-12 years of age but generally American whiskies find maturity between 4-8 years. The Hirsch whiskey will be gone in a year or two since the Michter Distillery has not opperated in years. And of course the Pappy Van Winkle whiskey was not produced by the owners of the brand.
