    Wholeheartedly agree. I used to be 'all-in' on the S&W bottles of VW - don't get me wrong, I certainly wouldn't turn one down today given the chance....unless up against the FRR. After I tried one a few years ago, it became my #1 choice whenever & wherever available. Unfortunately, both the "whenever" & "wherever" are now very, very rare.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Had some Ritt BIB (DSP-1 & DSP-354), WTR101, and Jefferson's 10yr as part of a blind rye tasting (details in another thread for anyone interested). Jeff10 was clearly the best, but was (pleasantly) surprised to find I liked the DSP-1 over the WTR101 - at least today. If asked what I thought the results would have been, I would have pegged the WTR101 to come in 2nd over the DSP-1 (and it did go back/forth a bit). Constant reminder to myself to taste blind

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Great summary Gary! It was interesting and encouraging to read your comparison of WTR101 and Ritt DSP-1.

    I am also focused on ryes today. I started with Jeff10, next up HW Double Rye, then WTR101. I am really starting to like the Jeff10!

    Blind tasting is the path to knowledge.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Enjoying my first ever pour of the Willett FE 4 yr.

    My first impression is...HELLO!!! It does not come gently into the night, but boldly kicks the door down in a rush of what could be described as sensory overload. You know, kind of like a kid in a candy store who cannot decide where to start.

    This is definitely bold and loud, but in an ever so sweet candy/spice bomb/mouth tingling pleasing good way. It is going to take me a while to figure this one out. Hell, I may even have to study late tonight.

    Well said Paddy about the WFE 4-year. Right on point with my first impression. Pretty special stuff imho.

    After letting the dog out and feeling how cold it is outside, I couldn't stay away from the 2013 THH. This is a great way to warm up on a cold night!
