I'm going to put in some votes for:
Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye
Tom's Foolery Distillery
Delaware Phoenix Distillery
Michter's Distillery, Inc. DSP-PA-17 Schaefferstown, PA.
Until Wednesday Feb. 14th, 1990, Michter's was "The whiskey that warmed the revolution."
I think Dad's Hat is a very tasty young rye. I personally prefer it to Old Overholt. And if you get a chance check out their Vermouth Aged Rye. Really interesting.
I have a 200ml bottle of '77 Old Overholt so I'm curious if the Dad's Hat is in that tradition of Pennsylvania rye - if you think it's better, I may need to start bunkering up on the Dad's Hat.

[QUOTE=Dolph Lundgren;340759]I'm not a fan of "craft" whiskey. Its too woody and young; there is something statutory about it all. But I had a chance to taste Journeyman Distillery's Kissing Cousins at WhiskeyFest this year, and I was impressed. It wasn't liquid gold - but it was good..more than just palatable, which I think goes a long way. Kissing Cousins is only a year old and finished in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel. The wine influence is strong and flavor profile is not typical - but its good, so who cares. If I run across a bottle, I'll buy one.
My wife set up a tour this last weekend for us for our anniversary (yes, she's the best) at Journeyman here in Michigan. They didn't have Kissing Cousins but of the 5 whiskey's I did taste, I liked them all - some more than others obviously. The bourbon I thought was very tasty. I was apprehensive because of all the negatives of small barrels, but I enjoyed them.
Dolph, the distillery is just around the lake from you. It would make a nice day trip.
