    Glad to hear you're enjoying the Rittenhouse 23, stands as further proof of the variability of this product from barrel to barrel, or person to person, since I loved the 25, and I've often found the 23 underwhelming. Killer lineup.

    I might have to finally try this rye whiskey stuff, it sounds like it might be decent. Is Wild Turkey 81 a good one?

    What Rye Are You Drinking? Summer 2013

    The Ritt 23 has a pronounced spicyness to it where the Ritt 25 has a ton of barrel influence which makes it sweet and syrupy to me. I can only handle small half pours of the 25 before it overwhelms my palate. The Hirsch 21 is still my favorite, i find the HW 16 and V21 too woody for my tastes

    I also just left 6 bottles of some family Van Winkle Rye Reserve stuff on the shelves. It didn't say Pappy, so I passed. Plus, 95 proof just sounds like complete firewater.

    You made the right decision. Pisswater, it is.

    The WT Rye 81 sucks the 101 was great.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.
