    Heh. Point taken. Figured you guys liked the techo-nerd details, though.

    Along the same line of thinking, our new distillery will feature floor malting, and our vodka will be the only vodka made with floor malt in the world... so we joked about how we can't call it "Floor Vodka" for the same reason we can't call the other stuff "Bacterially Infected Bourbon". : )

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Winter '12/'13

    Sipping on some Classic Cask 21 year. Sublime. One of the best ryes under 100 proof that I have ever had. Wonderful balance of oak and leather dryness with molasses, maple, and vanilla sweetness.

    I was wondering when you were going to crack into some of that CC21, glad to hear its a winner!

    Did you ever determine the source of the juice?

    Not with any certainty. I'd guess it is from the same lot as Rathskellar, LeNells, etc. though.

Some are quite highly colored, almost like a blue cheese, others are mostly white with only light veins.

    This current one is the best. It smells of butterscotch candy, the minty kind. The taste is sweetish with oaky overtones, and light acetone/rye, and it flows very evenly on the palate.

    Really a great whiskey especially if you hit the right bottle (and if you don't, buy another one or two and mingle it til you get it right).

    Did you buy this in Ontario?

    I am sipping on Bulleitt tonight. Refreshing nose on this unseasonably warm day, coats the inside of your mouth nicely and a wonderfully long and warming finish. So many attributes can be applied but I would be missing out on drinking time and the game.

    Just finishing off the last of a TH Handy. Obviously, the best part of the bottle, with it's gritty char-infused ending. Love that char...

    Enjoying a little Old Potrero this afternoon and may finish off with some Saz 18 after dinner.
