    Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye

    Ok, so there are NO details on this yet but I am just teeming with excitement for it. I've been vocal about my distaste for BT bourbons, however I love anything rye that comes out of there. In fact, I think some of the ryes they produce are the top of their class. VWFRR and THH being the leading examples, naturally.

    All that being said, this new straight rye from BT is making me drool. To me it is the missing link between Handy and VW. I haven't been this excited for a new whiskey in a while now, especially after the let down that the previous releases of EHT have been for me.

    Yeah, but how will they price it? Up here the retail for Handy is $60, and the VWFRR is $45, but all the EHTs have been $60 or more. So there is a good chance that you'd have to pay more for the EHT rye than the others.

    All the EHT around here is about $65, but then again so is Handy and VWFRR (when you can find it)

    If it's as good as I'm imagining, I won't have too much of a problem forking over the dough. Plus, I have friends at lots of stores so I will probably buy it for below retail.

    How old? Unless it's somewhere around 10-12 yrs., it's not really a missing link.

    Well, I'm hoping it's at least 10 years old. I think 10 yr 100 proof BT rye would be pretty phenomenal

    Should be. We know from current discussion that the 13yr BT rye is liked by most.

    Sorry, I just couldn't help myself on this one. With recent threads it's just been so easy to throw gas on the fire.

    I am excited about this one. I find the regular Sazerac rye to be great and Handy to be exceptional. This leaves me really excited about a possible 10 year old Bottled in Bond rye. If only it weren't chill filtered...
