    Enjoying a pour of Willet 4 yr 110 Single Barrel Rye after an excellent meal and putting the boy to bed.

    Just picked up my 2nd bottle of the 4 year/110 Willett Rye yesterday. Man it is great stuff!

    Drinking some baby Saz, once it is done that's it. I will switch to THH. It is much better.

At first he was sipping small pours but they kept getting progressively larger such that when he woke up the next morning, he realized that he totally AaronWF'd that bottle. So he's been on eBay obsessively looking for another ..."

    Keep in mind, this is not a pejorative term -- it's an honorable term. To have AWF'd a bottle is to have drunk deeply, soulfully, and well.

    I plan to AWF -- with AWF -- some serious shit in a few weeks at my wedding. A Willett 24 rye comes to mind!
    Well there are certainly worse practices of which to have a term coined in your honor. Thanks for the nod!

    Really enjoying the Willett 5YO rye that is drinking IMO extremely well. Paired a bit up with Bernheim Red cap for a very refreshing rye and ginger..

    Just poured a HW21 rocky mtn rye after a long day at work. Already planning my next pour since tomorrow looks even longer.

    Re: What rye are you enjoying Spring 2012?

    We almost killed my new bottle of High West Rendezvous at a BBQ yesterday. I didn't think it would be that popular, honestly. After the first pour went so quickly, I was happy that people liked it. After everyone took a hearty second pour, I thought, "Well, now I know what to get these guys for presents." After the third pours went around, and people were getting a little too rowdy, I hid the bottle.

    All of this is a testament to how smooth, delicious, and drinkable this juice is. Very impressed at how much it improved after being open for a few weeks. At first open I didn't like it that much, due to a pronounced "fresh mown grass" nose, but now it's just sublime. Definitely going to pick up another bottle.

    I broke into a bottle of the Leopold's Maryland style rye after reading some comments on here. I have to agree with the other tasters- this is a nice pour, smooth, but with a unique character. looking forward to trying it in some cocktails.

    Started out with some Willett CS 5yr, then some Baby Saz, and finishing up with some HW Son of Bourye. The Saz tastes bland compared to the other 2.
