    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    WTR101. Picked another one up for the bunker today, so I think I'll be able to survive the drought for a while.

    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    Last night was nice pour of Handy with a couple small ice cubes, I let them melt down. Bottle's been open over a year and there might be one, maybe two pours left. Damn, this has gotten better with time. Plus there's a fair amount of char swirling around. Yum.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    Enjoying a glass of Rittenhouse BiB tonight. I have just recently added rye whiskey to my drinking rotation and so far I am enjoying the two I have tried. Along with the Ritt I have a bottlle of THH. I am planning on picking up a couple of mid shelfer ryes so I can save the THH until I gain a little better appreciation of what I am tasting. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    I just started drinking the High West Rendezvous. I think it's a great pour and it runs $45-ish around here. Maybe some Baby Saz to compare with the THH. And it is a nice rye in its own right. And a lot of people are fans of Bulleit, though I'm not particularly enamored. Might still be a good idea to pick a bottle up if you're trying the big names in the rye world. You'll also know what people mean by LDI rye.

    See if you can find some WT101 Rye that's still floating around but nearing extinction. It's very good and affordable too in the low $20's. Avoid over-priced boring stuff like Templeton which is decent enough but lacking the zing I like in my ryes.

    I'm the last rye lover on the planet who hasn't tried Bulleit Rye yet but thought I'd give it a whirl just to see what it's like. What put you off about it?

    Finished off the Whistle Pig last night. Met my Kentucky courier for lunch today and took deliver of a 23 Rittenhouse and a Knob Creek Rye. Will try the KCR tonight.

    I think it's a fine rye, don't get me wrong. I'm just not all that crazy about it. It may be that super-high-rye-content ryes aren't generally my thing, though I do like High West Rendezvous.

    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    Not quite a rye but an excellent whiskey, High West 21 years old rye mash whiskey. It's aged in reused barrels. It is full-bodied and flavored, almost like a straight.

    This is what Canadian whisky would taste like if the flavoring element (whiskey distilled out under 160 proof from a bourbon or rye mash) was aged on its own. I still can't understand why Canadians won't release some of this whiskey on its own.

    Recently bought a bottle a was very curious of the influence of the used cooperage,I am expecting the sweetness and vibrance to play through brilliantly as opposed to taking second seat to barrel char.I would love to hear more tasting notes as you work your way through your bottle.
