    Just felt like being a bit different tonight, so AE Rye it is......... and I think I made the right choice.

    Only tasted the AE rye once-not shipped to Hoosierland, but wow-dessert in a glass. A real different animal.

    Had a tiny, tiny sip of Hirsch 22 at the end of the work day. Very different from anything I've had and I found it difficult to describe with my existing palate vocabulary. Looking forward to revisiting in a few days.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Ritt BIB. i got it to further experiment with ryes, but i just dont see the popularity of this. for ryes, ive only tried Overholt and this, and neither seem to grab me in any way. actually the OO was downright undrinkable to me. 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?

    Well I'll tell you this,it's got the proof you are seeking and the rye punch will bowl you over..... as for the profile that is something you'll have to decide for yourself.I think the Willett is the best value in the bang for your buck category as far as a high proof younger rye.I personally enjoy it,but I enjoy it neat as well as in manhattans so for me it is quite versatile.

    Beam OO is an abomination and if you are drinking Ritt BIB you may as well just pour a high rye bourbon so I dont' think you have even stepped a pinky toe in the the rye realm.. The Willett is one of those bottles that you will love or hate as it is such a big high proof rye and has a huge amount of rye spice..
