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

    birthday eve, no work tomorrow, breaking out the last of the Saz 18 in the bottle. Probably enough for two nice glasses worth.

    it was a 09 that started a bit slow, but it's come into a pretty satisfying last half of a bottle.

    VWFRR from a recently opened bottle and damn could I drink this every day,but the scarcity and my limited number of bottles causes me to be most humble with my pours.

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

    Polished off another bottle of Rendezvous Rye, I should consider buying High West stock given the amount of empty bottles my household has generated

    Having my first ever pour of Saz 18 and all I can say is "Wow". The nose is phenomenal with that familiar rye spice but also a sweetness and oakiness that balances nicely. The thick and luscious mouth feel with some spice up front and sweetness on the finish equates to just a wonderful drinking experience in my opinion.

    On a side note, I picked this up along with a GTS a few months ago as my first foray into the BTAC and after spending some time with the GTS, I was thinking that maybe my expectations were a little too high. I like the Stagg and appreciate the amount of flavor that can come from such a strong spirit, but after having this first pour of the Saz, I'd gladly trade a Stagg for a Saz any day of the week. I'll check back in in a few weeks and let you know if this sentiment continues.

    The 2012 Stagg has not lived up to some of the previous iterations, IMO. I would generally take a Stagg over a Saz, but I agree with you on the 2012 version.

    Anyone seen Ritt BIB lately? I've been keeping my eye out for months thinking there should be a release soon, but I'm getting impatient!

    I run in to it all over the place in NKY. I went almost two years and didn't see a bottle and then around last August/ September cases of it have been available.

    Wish I was awash in Rittenhouse, streams have dried up around here.
