    What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Enjoying a pour of Ritt 25 and a few pours of V21, I can not get over how "heavy" the Ritt 25 is. One pour is all I can ever manage to enjoy in an evening.

    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    I have three now:

    Jim Beam rye
    George Dickel rye
    Wild Turkey 81 rye

    The Dickel and the WT are the better ones, they are both bolder. Not sure which one I like best yet. Need to spend some serious time with them.

    LIttle Hirsch 22yr for the night.

    Poured another one of these for another forum member earlier in the day, Wryguy and his brother made a pit stop by the house on their cross country pillage for a little bit. Always nice to meet another, and once again proves my belief that there are some amazing great and generous folks amongst the board.

    I'm looking forward to getting out his way some day to see the goods out there.

    Of course, he also made a very generous deliver to my bunker, which left me smiling the rest of the day. of course, seeing the look on his face as he picked up his, was priceless. It was a genuine look of true awww. Having great bottles is nice, but sharing great bottles, and seeing the joy, is even better.

    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Finally uncorked my Willett 25yr rye (my 10th anniversary present, purchased last September). The nose is nice - woody (as you'd expect!), with charred oak front and center and more molasses than baking spices. I think this would have been amazing . . . if bottled a few years earlier. At least on this initial pour, on the palate it was very bitter - so much so that it was overpowering. Hoping it improves with some air, or just an off night (although I poured a half-ounce of some Willett 4 yr rye first to warm up the palate and see if my senses were working, and it tasted as nice as it usually does).

    Yet another reminder that I should always follow my own rule to "try before you buy", at least on any purchases over $50

    Enjoying my V21 again tonight, really wishing I had bought more bottles of this when I had a chance.
