    Re: What rye are you enjoying Spring 2012?

    Just killed a bottle of the Willett 5 year rye while helping my wife with her Ph.D. thesis. Some help I am!

    If her thesis was on alcohol consumption then you likely helped quite a lot!

    Yeah, the "drinks until he gets cross-eyed" graph would have very small error bars.

    Actually, I can't find anything I liked tonight, so I literally dumped some good whiskey down the drain and just had on Oberon with an orange slice instead. I guess that's what I wanted all along.

    Was fortunate to obtain a Jefferson's 10 yo rye that i am thoroughly enjoying! Nose is minty, lemongrass, earthy. Initial taste has an oiley feel as it wets your tongue with subtle vanilla leading to moderate lemon zest with hints of spice that lasts all he way through the long finish. Will definetly purchase again when I have the opprotunity.

    My first Saz 18, expensive but solid pour @ Congress St Social Club - Savannah, GA. But heck, you only get married once, or in my case, twice......hopefully.

    High west double rye tonight. Not the first time I've had it. The nose was not agreeing with me tonight, but the rest was good.

    High West 16 ... local overpriced place has a half bottle for $50 and yeah, I bought it. Good but not great and not really worth it. Tastes like Saz 18 left to go flat in the back of my cabinet.

    Followed by PS Willett 5 year LDI, 118.8 proof.

    Loss of WT 101 aside, I think we're experiencing a young rye Renaissance. I haven't had a bad young Willett rye yet.

    A short pour of Hirsch 13YO black wax rye as I grilled up some salmon on the BGE...... It will be a sad day when this bottle runs dry...
