    Either way, the 47% & the 55% barrels of the Willett 24 Rye were both distilled on the same day but there's a clear difference in taste so who knows?
    Its been interesting to me to try and match up the old ryes. The one I feel most confident on is the BMH 23 and the Hirsch 22. They taste nearly identical to me and the info points to Medley. Proof differences make some of the others harder to compare like the Doug Phillips and Doug/Neal. They are so much higher than the Saz18, VWFRR and the first two I mentioned. I suspect that the Doug's were Bernheim/CoK as was the Saz but they are harder to compare SBS.

    And let me add before this sounds too geeked out- I wouldn't kick any of these out of my Glencairn. I'm lucky to have even tasted some of these.

    Opened up my first bottle of High West Double Rye last night and while enjoyable it doesn't quite measure up to the Rendezvous but I do like it. Been a member for a few months now but I'm still opening up my first bottle of something every week.

    I certainly agree with your assessment of Double Rye. It's ok but I prefer rendezvous or just HW16. Tonight just plain ole Ritt BiB

    A long, slow, sip of Fleischmann's Rye. What a hidden jewel of a whiskey.
