    Re: What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    Had an enjoyable blind 4-way with BMH 18yrs (barrels R70 & R77), Saz 18 (2011 release), and for kicks - Ritt BIB DSP-1. The color and nose quickly separated the Ritt from the rest, and grouped the two BMHs together. I definitely prefer the BMH over the Saz 18. The BMH has a more creamy mouthfeel, and seems to have a better balance between the fruit, spice and wood (at least for my palate). I actually found the Saz 18 to be too dry, and on the palate liked the Ritt BIB better (it wasn't more complex obviously, but I enjoyed it better). I was trying to determine if the BMH might be Saz juice or HH (which is why I included the Ritt), and it definitely is closer to the Ritt. I find that also has a more creamy mouthfeel than the Saz. Thankfully barrels R70 and R77 were virtually identical. I tasted them in different orders, and picked the second one I tasted each time After 4 rounds, I decided I couldn't pick between the two - both are excellent representations!

    Some WTR101 and AE Rye shared with friends on this much cooler and glorious day,AE was seen as a novelty and the WTR was quite well received.I hate to admit I'm a big fan of the AE for its unique quality alone,great niche market pour indeed.

    Finishing off a bottle of HW Double Rye, and managed to buy a taste of HW21 Rye today. Hell of a kick, glad i tried, but not my thing. Too much bite.
