    Had some HW 21 last night. Good, not great.

    I absolutely adore that 21 and what the refill barrel does or doesn't do for it. It's a pretty unique aged rye.

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Ok, opened up the Hirsch 22 rye and did a side by side with H25 rye.

    Note, I had a big pour of WLW and a humongous pour of GTS so . . .

    They are both great and very similar.

    Color slight edge to H25, a little darker amber

    Nose slight edge to H22, a little more going on there but both could will be leaving you sniffing it all night and your wife asking what the heck is going on.

    Taste - hmm I'm think I'm a little woodier than most also note I like PVW23 a lot. I have a slight edge to H25, a little more woody and interesting and more balance. I can see why many would love H22 rye more though. Sorry, it's like going out with a beautiful and interesting 27 year old or a 32 year old, you know what I mean. I'm happily marry so no temptation at this moment. Hahaha

    Finish, what's that, too many pours already. I think they are about the same but forgot about this. Both little to no burn which is what I like.

    Cheers
    Hugh

    Edit - after 4 sip and letting it sit, H22 taste is taking the lead. Both are great.

    Tried some Angel's Envy Rye last night and really liked it. Lovely rye-fruitiness with the rum cask finish rounding out the peppery notes. Bruce mentioned it was "quite drinkable" - and he was quite right!

    Having a pour of Russel's Reserve Rye 6 yr. I think this may have been the first rye whiskey I ever tried (at a Wild Turkey distillery tour) and ever bought (immediately following at their gift shop). I thought it was amazing that day, but after expanding my rye experience - I find it more ordinary.
