    I appreciate that you threw in a shout-out for VR21, since that's something I have bunkered.

    I agree two fold,this is what a raw in your face rye is all about bold and delicious.I think a couple bold pours are definitely in order for this evening!

    Opened my VWFRR tonight, really good stuff. Very similar to V21

    Interesting obobservation. While I found the two to be kinda similar in flavor profile the VWFRR seem much more creamy and bourbon sweet like than the v21.

    Always cool to get different data points!

    The finish and mouth feel of the VWFRR is way creamier and fuller than the V21, the rye punch that I get from them is very similar. Both are excellent rye whiskeys, I would have to say I like the VW a bit more but I have only had a small pour of it

    I just opened a bottle of Ritt 25 a couple of weeks ago and it is very woody, not that it isn't tasty it just has a big dose of wood in both the nose and taste. I know a couple store that have a few bottles of Ritt 21 and 23 and am very curious to see the differences in the 3

    In my opinion, pass on the 23 in favor of cleaning out their stash of 21. As stellar as the 21 is, the 23 is just bad. In fact, I bet you would find the 23 to be more tannic and less balanced than the 25.

    I will keep that in mind, my plan has been to buy both so I can taste all 3 at the same time but the reviews on the 23 are consistently bad so I might just skip it.

    Wild Turkey Rye. 101 proof, not that 81 business - according to WT I must not like my rye "smooth" nor "bold".
