    Re: Rye Shortage and Rye Resurgence

    If you mix straight ryes from different states, is that a straight rye? Or is it like bourbon that it would have to be called "blend of straight ryes"?

    Re: Rye Shortage and Rye Resurgence

    To that end, I combined equal parts Bulleit Rye (95%) and Knob Creek Rye (51%), and saw that it was good. A nice balance of flavor and body. I suppose any 95% and any 51% will do, but those are the two I had handy.

    Re: Rye Shortage and Rye Resurgence

    Bourbons work to, just use less. I like to use corny bourbons like HH bond to round out LDI ryes.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
