    Rye article in Mental Floss

    There'a a one page article about rye whiskey in the March/April issue of Mental Floss magazine. It contains a couple anecdotes about George Washington and an interesting list of 5 ryes to try:

    Ritt BiB
    Sazerac Jr.
    Whistle Pig
    Lions Pride
    McKenzie rye

    Nice exposure for McKenzie

    Their review:

    "Hailing from New York, this gem smells like freshly baked bread with honey - it's as though Winnie the Pooh opened a distillery."

    I know some soccer moms who would take umbrage against Winnie the Pooh being a whisky figure.

    Re: Rye article in Mental Floss

    Keeping with this, if Eeyore, Tigger, or Piglet had distilleries, what would they make??

    PS- Tom, I promise to never call you Pooh. Ever.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    They wouldn't make anything. Eeyore would be overwhelmed by the immensity of the task, Tigger would burn the place down trying to get a fire going under the still and Piglet would, well, be Piglet.

    Re: Rye article in Mental Floss

    I read the article at work, and don't have it in front of me. I liked the article. One thing I wasn't sure of; isn't Whistle Pig distilled in Canada? Nothing wrong with that, but the article says from Vermont. I thought it was made in Canada, bottled in the US?
