    That's true but the added value of the historic Jack Daniels name would trump any other use IMO.

    You could be right, but they'd have to make it there.

    Ryes may be becoming like SUVs. Every brand needs one, even if (like Porsche) it's out of character.

    Since the KBF won't allow rye to be poured, and since a couple of today's popular straight ryes are made in Canada, maybe we need to organize an International Rye Whiskey Festival.

    But where to hold it? Why, Rye, New York, of course.

    When I was last there in mid-March, they were totally remodeling the lobby and bar area.

    I ordered a Manhattan at the bar. I tried for rye, and they had none, but they had Booker's for a call bourbon, and the very nice bartender poured me a BOMB... the large martini glass was full to the brim.

    I had just driven down from MA, and some friends took me out to the Coach Diner in Port Chester (it's one of my favorite diners ever!)... I was, to put it gently, wasted drunk all the way through dinner.

    $50 for an unaged rye? This makes microdistiller pricing look fantastic (for example, compare to HW OMG rye, on both proof and price.) Pass.

    Go easy on them. I'm sure they'll start releasing some really nice stuff once they have been in business for a little longer,
