    I had to take my cap off in a moment of silence when I found out about LB's buying freeze...

    But I'm celebrating now as one of the all-stars of rye hunting is now out of the game. More for me I thought initially but sadly there is very little left out there in the wild I think.

    Re: What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    In chat last night we were drinking some ryes, ChainWhip at one point had some 10yo Michter's rye. I mentioned I loved the Michter's 10yo bourbon but had never even seen a bottle of the 10yo rye in my area. Today I got out of work early, stopped at two package stores, didn't find anything interesting. Then went to bourbon & pizza bar nearby that I love. Had to park farther away that I usually do and ended up walking by another package store that I have never been to before, in a not so great part of town. Popped in and what do you know, Michter's 10yo Rye. Sold.

    I admit that I prefer bourbon over rye, but WOW!

    Edit: What's really cool about that find is that you will actually crack it open soon with tasting notes.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Have to say I am completely stumped, never heard of Red hook rye. Do let us know how it is.

    Probably because it's very rare (everyday pour, lol.) It's along the lines of Rathskeller and some old BMH and Willett ryes http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...l=1#post321147

    I taunted him by sending him a picture of 4 ridiculously rare ryes that showed at my house last night for temporary storage..

    That is Lenells Batch #1, all bottles of Lenells were sold with a letter from Lenell describing how they picked the barrel and also has cocktail recipes on the back.. That makes me chuckle as I am thinking of the look of horror I would have if I saw someone using this to make cocktails
