    There was some discussion on that - I'm not sure we sorted it out beyond the shadow of a doubt. Agree on the high proof - does rye whiskey have to enter the barrel at 125 or less, or can it go in higher?

    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Had a pour of the Dickel Rye tonight. Not surprisingly it is very similar to Bulleit Rye, but the charcoal filtering seems to give it a slightly different flavor. At $32 it's expensive, but still cheaper than Bulleit. I hope the prices come down on this some as I would make this a staple whiskey.

    Chris is being extremely diplomatic about it, unsurprisingly, so to put it in much more blunt terms, how the heck can 62.5% go to over 75% in just 5 years? I've never heard of such a thing.

    That is a pretty high price. In Atlanta it seems like it is low $20's at most for the Dickel Rye.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Had a mini of Jim Beam Rye - won't be repeating that error. It's not bad, it's just not good, either. Not worth buying again, in my book. Followed it with a Dickel Rye pour, aah, now there's some flavor. I don't get the pickle juice some mention, tho.

    Willett 5yr tonight. No reason, just the front bottle from the shelf.

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Dug a new-old bottle of Wild Turkey Rye 101 from the vault. Haven't had a bottle open in a few months and, boy, did I miss this stuff. Pretty much my favorite whiskey--Still hoarding five sealed bottles and one open. Also, located a store with a few more bottles available. Heading over in a few days to clean 'em out.

    Baby Saz. First bottle I came to and it had been a while. Might have to find something else to kick it up a notch and get a little more spice. Looks like a Ritt 23 to finish the night off. Definitely a rye night for me.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!
