The Bulleit Rye is more of a "Monongehela Rye" than almost anything else on the market at the moment. Having been raised in Western Pennsylvania, I quickly developed a connection to it, and it is now a staple of my collection. I currently have a bottle of Knob Creek Rye, and I enjoy it-- but the Bulleit Rye is the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the words "Rye Whiskey!"
