    You should have hauled you ass down to Bardstown in April Will,plenty to be had out at the Gazebo from Barrel#2 and #1 is still safely tucked away deep in the bunker.I was lucky enough to nab one of each.

    I tried this for the first time last night. I was prepared to be blown away. I wasn't. I can see why it gets a lot of love, but I like my rye with more age on it.

    To me, rye is at it's best when the wood and spice fight for your tongue like Inigo Montoya and Westley fighting over Buttercup.

    Preach! I'm going to have a pour of Rittenhouse 25 right now in honor of this truth. Cheers SMOWK!

    The first rule of wood and spice fight is we talk about it.

    How does it compare to THH? I have a bottle but am not in a hurry to open it because I simply don't like the malt notes in the THH. Since those notes also are in the white dog rye, I consider it a genetic defect, not fixable with current methods.

    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Tasted a multitude of fine ryes last night. Most of the standard heavy hitters were there, except Ritt 21 and any BMH ryes. We calibrated with Ritt BIB. The only geezers I hadn't tasted yet were Hirsch 21 and Vintage 23. I was sorely disappointed in both, and have crossed them off my hunting list. Not in the ballpark of my faves (V21, Hirsch 22, VWFRR), and would not recommend. V23 has a nice nose and palate entry, but quickly turns into a musty/funky mess, all bitter and woody on the finish. The Hirsch 21 has way too much alcohol burn and lacks the depth of flavor and complexity of its older siblings. Between the two bottles I'm out $300 and I kinda feel like fool.

    Trey my education was also expensive and that's why I don't buy brands with unverified contents.

    A good point that is worth making, but my experience with these brands had been very positive already. I guess I flew too high and got BURNED by the NDP sun.

    I had small pours of HW Rendezvous and Willett 4yr. They really tasted good today, what I could taste of them as I am dealing with some pretty bad allergies.
