    CL,

    Thanks very much for the bitters descriptions. I'll have to give the Regan and Woodford varieties a try in some upcoming Manhattans. And I agree, the barrel aged Fee Brothers can be tough going, but if you have a chance to try their orange variety, I don't think you'll be disappointed. And they also combine nicely with a dash of something stronger, like Angostura.

    The local stores finally got some DSP-1 Rittenhouse in stock, so maybe I'll have a Manhattan-off with the baby Saz and the new Rittenhouse and see what's what.

Before i give up on straight ryes, you guys got a recomendable one in the sub $40 range? I see the Willett 4 yr rye everywhere, but with my history of ryes, i pass it up every time. is it worth trying?
    I like my WFE 5 yr rye, no idea where it comes from and every Willet is different. For sub-$40, you could try a Bulliet Rye which I think is the 95% rye from MGPI - but doesn't meet your 100pf threshold (I think it is 90pf).

    The commonly seen 110 proof 3, 4, or 5 year WFE Rye is from MGPI.

    Got together with some fellow members and had some Delilah's 15, Rathskeller, Bowman CS, BMH18. No big deal.

    There was definitely some Vintage 21 on the table and there was no mention. Apparently, when it rains, it pours, especially in Seattle.
