    whats your favourite rye?

    Coming from Australia, we are not blessed with a great variety of Rye's. However on my way back from the USA last month I managed to pickup some gems that aren't available here. Ive been enjoying Templeton Rye, and Bulliet Rye witch I think has just fantastic flavour and spice. Tried Old Overholt also witch wasn't bad for a lower proof whiskey. Whats your favourite? price is no object, look forward to your responses from down under and abroard!

    I love lots of rye. I would try Whistle Pig, Jefferson's, Rittenhouse, Baby Saz, Saz 18, and my personal fav, Thomas H Handy.

    Favorite ryes would be Sazerac 18, Handy, Rittenhouse BIB and Wild Turkey 101. There are other good ones of course but those are at the top of my list.

    whats your favourite rye?

    The best ryes I've ever had are two that I'm not likely to have again, a Rathskeller and Abraham Bowman, both at this year's Gazebo gathering.

    In terms of daily favorites, I absolutely love the Willett 4/5 year 110 proof. Similar to the Willett is the very good Smooth Ambler 7 year rye. I also have 6 or so Ritt BIB 354 in the bunker. That stuff is a dollar-for-dollar champion.

    I like the Van Winkle Rye, in fact it's the only Van Winkle I would consider buying, but it's too difficult to obtain to merit a spot on my list.

    Josh, you will make many more trips to the Gazebo, and I can guarantee that more AB will be there

    Obtainable-Ritt BIB,Willett,Whistlepig,Jeffersons,Mastersons,Dicke l,Knob Creek and Bullliet

    Obtainable but difficult to find-VWFRR,Ritt 21,23,25,BMH 23,Hirsch 21,22,25,HW16 and 21

    The ultra-aged ryes are always a treat and always prove to be rather elusive,enjoy your rye journey.

    Seconded on that Rathskeller. Absolutely one of the best whiskies I've ever had period.

    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    Black Maple Hill 18 year old rye and second to that, Michter's 10 year old straight rye.

    The problem is, I can't find any anymore.
