    Re: The Rebirth of Rye Whiskey

    Ah, memory is such a fleeting glimpse. If someone had asked me today I'd have sworn with a true heart and clear conscience that we were drinking Sazerac Rye since 2002.

    Re: The Rebirth of Rye Whiskey

    Might be 2002. Either way, not a 'longtime' favorite and, again, that's sloppy journalism. The Sazerac Cocktail is a 'longtime New Orleans favorite,' but Sazerac Rye is a recent introduction.

    Re: The Rebirth of Rye Whiskey

    'Longtime' is subjective, there really is no right or wrong, so I question whether this constitutes sloppy journalism. For some of us who are much too young to remember glut whiskey, Saz is a longtime favorite. Additionally, in the context of the recent rebirth of rye, which the story was about, Saz has comparatively been around for a long time.

    If you don't like the story, it would seem that the thing to do is set it straight on your blogspot account where it can be taken more seriously, and possibly seen by more people than pay attention to those self-aggrandizing and irrelevant NPR journalists - how dare they write about whiskey?!

    Hey, I know some of those NPR folks, good company but they all (the ones I know) think Bourbon is for rednecks.

    The opinion of those who look down their nose while sniffing their single malt. A blend actually, I poured it in the SM bottle and they can't tell the difference.

    I can't express how much I enjoy it when people tell me how to do my job. Want to guess why I work for myself?

    ...and another thing there, Chuck. We want more reviews this year, I say, you've got to increase your intake, increase your output and maintain that high quality. That's what I say!

    Re: The Rebirth of Rye Whiskey

    Back to the Woodford end of the story. The NPR piece suggests that the rye is being made entirely at Versailles. My own good sense suggests that now that Heaven Hill is (presumably) back to running their rye in-house, that B/F is going to continue running the bulk of their rye at Early Times (to their own specs) and will mingle it with whatever "show" barrels they have at Versailles.

    But that's just my own barely educated guess.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
