    Alternating bites of the fudgesicle with sips of Baby Saz is sooooo gooood. Really nice on a warm muggy night like last night, but also good in the cooler weather in front of the outdoor fireplace. The flavors really do complement each other.

    If TomH doesn't do his World Famous Stagg Bananas Foster at KBF, maybe I'll provide this not-so-famous alternative...

    Some SA 7yr Rye. I really am starting to think it's a seasonal thing...i stepped back and looked at my open shelf and it's somehow shifted to 50% Rye.

    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    Did a blind tasting, of Rittenhouse, Wild Turkey Rye 101, Willet 4 yr rye, and basic Sazerac. I've tasted each spirit before, but not in a four-way comparison. Mom set-up the glasses (although probably didn't pour enough), while I meditated in the other room. Thanks Mom! I smelled and tasted through the line, ranking the four spirits, and then attempted to identify each. Blind rankings were as follows: #1, Rittenhouse DSP-KY-354, #2, Wild Turkey Rye 101, #3, basic Sazerac, #4, Willet. I enjoyed both #1 (Rittenhouse) and #2 (Wild Turkey) and did not care for basic Sazerac or the Willet. I correctly identified the two losers, but misidentified (swapped) Rittenhouse and Wild Turkey Rye.

    Trying a 1:1 vatting of Hirsch22:Saz18 tonight - results are promising (interestingly, this blend is spicier than the individual whiskies on their own) and I've got another 200ml of this blend squirreled away to mingle & cohabitate for a few of weeks.

    Interesting. If the educated guesses on here and the WhiskeyObsessive's Venn diagram are accurate you should have created VWFRR. Let us know what you find and if you can do a SBS w your vatting and some VW rye that would be cool.
