    No worries - I did get an "automated" birthday wish from the site!

    I picked up 3 handles of Fleischmann's rye and a liter of Stephen Foster today. Cost me less than a bottle of EH Taylor would have!

    Re: What Rye are you enjoying Summer 2012?

    How is that Fleischmann's Rye anyway? I'm very curious about it. A friend is going to WI to visit family in a few weeks, with a stopover in Chicago. I was going to ask him to pick up something special for me at Binny's, but I'm half thinking he should just grab a bottle of Fleischmann's in WI. It's not something I'm ever likely to find on my own.

    You are the man! Thanks. Really excited to try the Fleischmans when you get back.. and the McKenzie sounds interesting too.

    McKenzie is interesting. Sort of like a nice caraway rye bread, with a bit of four roses floral essence thrown on top. I'm enjoying it!

    I'll try the Fleischmann's tonight.

    Fleischmann's is interesting. Unmistakable Barton profile, slightly sweet, light banana nose. Reminds me quite a bit of nosing VOB 86, a nice light whiskey. As you take a sip it's not that sweet really, just a nice rye dryness balanced with a bit of sweet. It really warms the esophagus, but not the throat burning fire you sometimes get with the cheap stuff.

    The finish lasts for a good couple of minutes, slightly bitter, but tongue fulfilling and coating. It'll be interesting to see how this reacts with air, and see if the bananas take over or stay in the back ground.

    If you are up in Wisconsin, pick some up! I found mine at Piggly Wiggly in Sheboygan falls, complete with a $7 rebate off 2 handles. That'll take the price for 3 handles from $56 to $49, an amazing bargain.

    A single handle will already be more than Canada customs allows. It will have to be snuck in. I wonder if they'll find it in Madison? It's only a northern WI thing, I think.

    I made a Manhattan cocktail with Bulleit Rye, yesterday afternoon. Besides the whiskey, sweet vermouth, and Angostura, I added a small splash of Stirrings Blood Orange bitters. It was one of the best Manhattans I've ever had.
