Ive been on SB for a little less than a year now. I read the forum almost daily and add my two cents from time to time. One of the biggest lessons Ive learned is that the price and quality of bourbon are not linked. Great bourbon can be had on the cheap, and there are some terrible "top shelf" drams. Having learned this lesson, I was wandering my local liquor store, and I thought "Ive never had a rye whisky, I should buy some" Ritt is not available in FL to my knowledge, and the only other rye I remember reading about is saz. I tried to apply my earlier lesson of price and quality to this purchase. I ended up with a bottle of old overholt. I got home and tried it as soon as I walked in the door. It isnt very good. Do I not like rye? I seem to like high rye bourbon. Then I did a little research here. It turns out most of you dont like OO either. I know through the process you come across bottles you just dont care for. I found one today. Good news, it didnt cost me much, and its not bad as a mixer for my friends who dont know any better. Will I make more blind choices, probably. But I will try to be more informed. If all else fails, Squire has influenced me to buy more OGD.
