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

    LOL, subtle and very nice - at the right price, eh?

    The pours at the airport were $14 a pop. Had 3 of them. I joked earlier in this thread a couple of weeks ago that I was enjoying the Ri1 much more at the $19 I had just payed for a bottle. But, I say in all sincerity that I am enjoying it now, regardless of price. There's more flavor stuff going on in it than I gave it credit for a couple of years ago.

    Hmm. Perhaps I should revisit Ri1. I haven't tried the Knob Creek Rye- how do they compare to one another?

    Erik, the KCR is much bolder. I liken it to more of a WT 101 Rye. I can't say if the flavor profile is the same as KCR, as I haven't done a side-by-side, but the KCR does pack a healthy rye punch. I enjoy it very much. The thing on the Ri1 is that I so easily dismissed it a couple of years ago...but, my changing tastes find it very enjoyable, now. Even though it doesn't kick me in the teeth like I like ryes to do, it is enjoyably flavorful. But, subtle...

    I really can't tell much difference between the 4 and 5 year old. Not a bad LDI rye. Much more floral and assertive than say a Jefferson or WT rye

    Shared some High West 21 with friends during the game. Wasn't really in a whiskey mood most of the night, but I needed a small pour during that second half!
