    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Received some samples at the beginning of the week from a fellow Sber (you know who you are, many thanks!), and sat down to them tonight for some head to head tasting. It was a treat to get my nose in, and my lips on, this beautiful juice: Hirsch 21 and Vintage 21 ryes. Similar ages, both bottled by KBD, but two very different beasts. I'm going to keep at tasting them for now, and revisit them one more time before I post some tasting notes, but the long and short is, nothing makes me happier than some seriously aged rye, and tonight is no exception!

HW 21 came in third. The other HW and Ritt bib were the bottom. I was surprised how well the Willett did in that group. I will have to put it up against the Saz 18 when I get those two bottles in the same place at the same time.
    I've had the Rit BiB, Saz 18 and THH, and I'd take the Willett 4 over all of them. I love that stuff.

    Having my first taste of Bulleit's rye. Very good stuff. You can certainly taste the LDI influence that I enjoy so much in the Willett.

    Abraham Bowman Rye - TPS Barrel #1. This pour never disappoints.

    I don't know. I am pretty disappointed with that (fantastic) pour because I waited too long, and it was sold out. Admittedly, it is my fault and not that of the whiskey - the punishment for being indecisive is swift and merciless.
