    You should rectify that situation ... maybe not with a Handy, though.

    The first time I had a rye was just after I received a Handy

    Ryan I suggest you not pass the next Rye.

    Just tried my first straight rye last week - Ritt BIB. It is very good. I agree that a bourbon drinker should experiment with ryes.

    I passed on some Jefferson's Presidential Select 18 today for $89.95. I wanted to get some opinions here first. As someone who has never tasted Stitzel-Weller juice, should I go back and get this?

    Do you know what the batch # it was? If under 12, I'd head back now. If >12, I'd still pick it up, but heard it's not nearly as good.

    It was batch #19. OK. I'll have to think about it then. They had 6 bottles.

    I'm currently finishing a bottle of Batch 18 and I have to admit I wasn't blown away by it. Too much wood. Though, that's simply my experience. I have a 2nd bottle that's Batch 8 I've yet to try.

    The best thing to do is get one to try. This will only get more expensive and harder to find which is in general for any good aged wheater bourbon.

    For one and at this price IMO, it's worth it to try.

    If I happen onto these, I will definitely pick up more than one to continue to bunker up.

    Cheers
    Hugh
