    Best Rye On the Planet (not hardly)

    Just read where the Van Winkle 13 YO is the best whiskey on the planet - (I assume you are talking about Rye. I don't think it is the best rye and I will name some that are better I am thinking!! Oh yes, now it is coming to mind It's right on the tip of my tongue!!! Damn it has completely eluded me!!!! I will have another drink yes that's better. Now I remember, I will never doubt you again

    Cheers,
    Marvin

    Re: Best Rye On the Planet (not hardly)

    I just ordered a few bottles of the ORVW 13yo rye for "posterity." I'm too much of a rookie to say it's the best whiskey ever, but I'll tell you what... it certainly got my attention!

    (don't know how long they'll last)

    Amazing stuff!

    "I only share my whiskey with friends. Thank God I don't have any."
    Reminds me of , " Do you drink alone or with someone?"
    That depends, If I'm buying I drink alone, If you're buying , I'll drink with you!

    Hey Bobby, you're assuming I don't have any friends. Perhaps I simply have no whiskey

    I was judging it by my own situation , Whiskey is something I have a few bottles of, Not as many as some hereabouts. I have a few friends too.

    Do you mean the 13 yo Family Reserve rye or the 12 yo "Old Time" rye? If it's the latter, where did you order it from?

    Speaking of friends, try Sazerac 18 year, it will quickly become a friend. It is the best rye I have ever had. I believe that it was distilled to be Kentucky Cream, a now defunct rye label and it was "forgotten" in barrel until Sazerac bought Ancient Age and did a complete inventory which then "found" these superb and well aged ryes. To Buffalo Trace's everlasting credit they are now selling them in the "Antique" collection. Best rye I have ever had.

    Then you are a lucky man to have lots of both. I have not much bourbon, but many friends, and I prefer it that way. Better that, than lots of bourbon and no friends.

    Re: Best Rye On the Planet (not hardly)

    After another little tasting sessin last PM with the ORVW 13yo Rye, my eyes start to get a little misty knowing that there isn't much more of this stuff around.

    My question to ye experts is-- what is a suitable alternative to this? I tried the Wild Turkey Rye and didn't much care for it. Is there a reasonably priced "daily drinker" type rye out there somewhere?
