    Re: What rye are you enjoying Spring 2012?

    Not much of a high-roller here. Been enjoying my first bottle of Bulleit Rye. Pretty interesting stuff!

    Also like the new Knob Creek rye. A good stand-in for the Wild Turkey 101 rye.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    I tried the Bulleit rye a few times and it always seems to have very forward mint notes... are you seeing the big mint in the bottle you have?

    Re: What rye are you enjoying Spring 2012?

    For my birthday my wife presented me with a 2011 Handy that she's bought and his last year. It's a little bitter up front but some time in the glass has definitely mellowed it a bit and it's getting round and mellow. Huge flavors in there, too.

    Time for another pour.

    Cheers!

    Just trying the Woodinville Whiskey Co rye release. @ 92 proof it is very smooth and a bit more forward and bold in flavors than the Sazarac but not as much as the Handy (obviously) All in all a very enjoyable pour.

    Sitting on the porch with a nice glass of HW Rendezvous Rye. Love the HW product line but I may have to pour my SB blend next!

    Continuing to love on the KC Rye, tonight. Big and spicy. This ain't no regular Beam Rye. Is it a bump in age? Is it the bump in proof? I don't know, but whatever it is, it works for me. This is a terrific rye.

    Re: What rye are you enjoying Spring 2012?

    I found some Willett straight rye. This time it's 3 year old, 110 proof. The 3 year has a bit less of the apricot taste and thick mouthfeel (compared to the 2 year old I had before). These are all numbered single barrel releases, so they are similar, but not exactly the same. Barrel proof rye is hard to beat.

    LIttle Saz Jr. to wind down the evening. THis would be one of my favorite everyday pours it is was more readily available. But, that's the reason to put away when the going is good on this.

    Big and spicy is great news and a step in a different direction compared to the other rye swill they have produced. Did Beam finally gets its act together, or are they sourcing this stuff?
