    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    I have only has a few. The selections from the BTAC, Vintage 23 and Rit BIB. It's the Rit that I prefer.

    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    Rittenhouse 23yr is my absolute favorite and also turned me from enjoying bourbon to absolutely loving bourbon.

    The WP that Dave Pickerell sourced is very tasty as well.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!

    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    I like several higher rye bourbons so I am thinking I might want to explore an actual rye whiskey. I will probably want to go with only one bottle right now. Don't want to fork over big bucks for AE, Handy and can't find Baby Saz so I am looking at WT Rye 101 or RITT BIB, mainly because they wouldn't be an expensive purchase. Both are available locally. What would be a good entry in to rye whiskey?

    Ritt BiB. It's more bourbony. Would be a good intro/potential gateway.

    Ritt BIB, definitely. I prefer it by a good margin over the Baby Saz (SazJr? Sazeracito the mini-luchador?)

    Within the guidelines mentioned, another vote for Ritt.

    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    After now having the Rathskeller, while it is one of the top, I'm not sure it it makes my number one.

    VWFRR ranks up there, with Hirsch 22 and Saz 18.

    I think more research is needed. Thankfully, the Seelbach is within a short distance for the next couple of days......

    May the best rye win!

    Actually, I think I'm the winner in this game so far.

    Re: whats your favourite rye?

    Mbroo, I'd get the WTR101 for a couple reasons: It has more rye flavor than the Ritt, and it's no longer being bottled, so grab it while you can. Also, if you like higher rye bourbons, there is VERY little chance you WON'T like the RittBIB, so you can pick it up at any time and won't be disappointed.
