    What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    Some THH 2011 - my favorite rye that I own (and one of the best I've had all around).

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    Same here. Two pours of THH 2011. Great stuff and still available in these parts.

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    Went to my favorite Hirsch 25 rye then open up a HW21rye.

    These two all two completely opposite of aged rye while they are both very smooth.

    For HW21, the nose is not as deep and alluring but is nice and pleasant. My first taste left me wondering what's the hype. But as I continue to sip and letting it open up, sip after sip, it tastes better and with my last sip of my first pour I can say I like it a lot.

    This is excellent but very different. The affect of the used cooperage is very pronounce. You get the well balance taste of the rye but much less wood. It's like a well balance and young or fresh aged rye. It's not burden with the excess wood. (I'm one who love the old wood rye too.)

    I'm going for a second pour now!

    What's the deal with the cork, it's kind of coming apart.

    Cheers
    Hugh

    Must be the theme of the evening as I had this in a Manhattan and then a pour on its own.

    Jefferson's Rye. Fantastic pour. Just wish it was a little higher proof.

    Reaching for my favorite rye tonight in post celebration of the Chicago Blackhawks winning of Lord Stanley's Cup. Nice pour of Abraham Bowman Rye 136.4 prf. Delicious and decadent.

    A little WTR 101 to end the long day. It is good I found a spare today.

    Some Very Olde St. Nick (Japan import) that I think is 93 proof LDI (reasonably pleasant, but not worth seeking out) and some Rittenhouse 21. The latter has one of the best noses I've encountered on a rye, but the palate is a bit thin. I reviewed it on my blog, but I'd say that while I am happy drinking it all day, I'm not sure I'd pay the money again. Also just opened some CEHT rye that was gifted to me- so far so good but I'll need a few more pours to really know what I think.

    Are you referring to the winter rye (I believe the summer rye is lower proof) or one of the many age stated bottlings?
