    What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Did a JPS18 then ECBP now enjoying a Hirsch 22 rye.

    I used to liie the nose of the SW, but this aged rye nose is much more alluring!

    Had Saz 18 x2 and Handyx1 last night. Saz #2 tasted even better as some guys dad picked up the round for the couple of us hanging out late at the hotel bar.

    That's some pretty nice southern hospitality!

    Sampling many ryes tonight. Trying to work my head around a blend to bring to the KBF. I may be in over my head. But I'm enjoying the homework!

    Why not try to come up with your own Bourye? Not to give you more homework or anything

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Starting with some Hirsch 22 rye. Taste is good but the nose is out of this world. I think about nosing it more often than drinking it, thinking if that is a problem.

    Finished the pour just typing this. Going for the H25r now.

    Probably jumping to the HW21 after, we'll see.

    You hit on something that I don't think has, or can, be said enough about these ryes, the nose.

    The Hirsch series, Rathskeller, Saz, etc..... they are incredibly fragrant compared to most anything else. Young ryes, bourbons, almost nothing holds competition to the rich, aromatic aroma that wafts seductively from the glass.

    I had a women asked me recently when at a bar in Louisville, why I was so into smelling a empty glass, I handed it other and told her to take a whiff, the lok said it all before that words came out of her mouth, "That's good", she then proceded to hand it to her husband, i think??, he gave the same conclusion. Saz 18 was in the glass.

    These rare beasts are the kings of the the nose, IMHO.

    WT101, Jefferson's and '12 Handy ryes tonight. A 1:1:1 blend was excellent, and a good way to stretch the 2x more expensive Handy.
