    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.


    ok, that would be Cherry Heering and strain into glass

    Have you seen any of the rye in Milwaukee? I've only seen it as far south as Manitowoc. Mostly in upper WI, never in Southeastern WI, unfortunately.

    No, I got mine near Chippewa Falls. Actually, we're going to be a little north of MIL., so I'll try my luck.

    Nursed a small pour of Rathskellar from an old sample last night, first pour in a couple weeks, since I've been on a no drinking order after a concussion. A little bit goes a long, long way though. Phenomenal. Always leaves my palate buzzing like bees.

    I thought the KC was pleasant, but one of the lesser pours on the table, especially considering the price. Among those three, I'm probably going to take Saz-Ritt-KC every time. The Dickel was a big surprise hit with everyone. Very easy drinker with a good burst of flavor. The WTR101 wasn't as popular as I had expected, was probably my #4 or 5 (we didn't actually rank them or anything). The Willett 4 year 120.8 proof was probably the consensus #1 in conversation (with two guys picking it tops, and it being my #2 behind the THH 126.9).

    My friend is a corporate chef for a meat and dry goods distributor and he hosted. Had some rye crackers with mustard and bratwurst as well as a pumpernickel bread bowl with spinach dip for apps. Then some homemade ruebens that were probably the best I've ever had. Everything paired with the whiskey extremely well.

    As Ryan said, that was ATG's Kentucky Ryed Chicken beer. I thought I'd like something a little cool and easy drinking to go with the meal so I brought that along. Everybody's team lost all weekend long, but I'd still have to say it was a success

    Josh, where did you pick up the high proof Willett rye? As someone said up thread I've only ever seen it at a constant 110 regardless of age.

    I got it at Toddy's in April. It's a good measure better than the normal 110 proof bottles I've had, and I enjoy those.
