    What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    I feel silly when I have an all rye buying day and then I post about it in the bourbon purchase thread, so I'm starting this thread, hope its not too out of place.

    Today I bought a Jefferson's 10 year rye, a baby Saz and found my first WTR 101. Also picked up my first bottle of Dickel rye. Passed on many overpriced bottles of HW21 and a Hirsch 25. Oh, and a boatload of Willett 5 yr old rye.

    What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    I am so rye deficient. I have more bottles open right now than I ever have and the closest thing I have to a rye is Bourye. Not good. At all.

    Wait, the Bourye's good, I meant my open rye deficiency is not. Just to be clear.

    Clearance! I seem to be only finding it at marked up prices!

    Wryguy, I had the Dickel rye for the first time last week. I loved it. My store ran out of it at 21 clams so I am waiting for a restock. Interested to know what you think about it.

    Grabbed a four-year old Willet rye this week. There's been plenty around the local shops.

    GB, I like the Dickel quite a bit, seems to me that the charcoal filtration rounded out the prickly, pickly edges of the LDI juice quite a bit, one of the few ryes I've enjoyed more on the rocks, mint comes forward, and its not overly sweet. Unfortunately around these parts prices are all over the place on this product, ranging from 25-38. I got mine for the former, but if it were 21 like in the Great North I'd be a repeat buyer. No wonder they ran out. I find the Dickel to most closely resemble the Redemption Rye of all the LDI ryes out there.

    I purchased several more bottles of WTR 101 and am starting to see the 81 proof fill up the old spots.

    Baby Saz! finally found some, in fact a stash of it... I passed on some a month ago and went to collect and all 5 were gone. I should have known better when the drop happened.
