    I was thinking the same when I had a few pours of VWFRR last night. It is truly an amazing pour--the nose on it is very nice. And I really like the warmth that the finish provides.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Sazarac rye, Carpano Antica sweet vermouth, Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Aged bitters. Griottines cherry. My first time using the bitters and cherries.

    I only started making my own Manhattans a few months ago. Still learning much, but having several in different cocktail bars has helped immensely. I had been using Old Scout Rye (99 proof) and Willet 4 yr rye (110 proof) recently. My drinks tasted too strong. Silly me thought it was too much bitters. No. It was too much alcohol. I made one tonight with a new bottle of the Saz rye (90 proof). Ahhhhhhhhh. The Antica sweetness really comes through now. Lesson learned.

    I will learn more about the Fee Brothers WBA bitters - so far, it has that bite I want, but with a whisky sweetness. The Griottines cherries are very good, but expensive. Until now, I had been using home-made brandied cherries.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    my wife forwarded me some cocktail recipes and this one sounded good…and I had everything in the house

    Remember the Maine (American battleship sunk in Havana Harbor before the Spanish-American War)

    1/2 oz Absinthe--coat glass and discard excess
    1 1/2 oz Bulleit Rye
    3/4 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
    1/4 oz Cherry Heeling
    2 dashes Angostura Bitters

    combine last 4 ingredients with ice; stir or shake; stain into glass. I added a couple of Luxardo cherries.

    It's a Ryed Chiquen a rye beer finished in a rye whiskey barrel released by ATG brewery and rather tasty I might add.Kind of a play on the whole rye theme but a very nice addition if I do say so to keep things interesting.
