Nice spicy flavor with a mild grassy taste. Really nice rye. I would encourage anyone who has not tried it to give it a go. It is an LDI rye but the proof (110) adds to the flavor and experience.
    Well....since you insist. WFE 4 yr rye (#anditisdamngood)!

    Santa made his way into my lone bottle of Saz last night.

    Finished off a bottle of Saz 18 with the family over Christmas, and put a pretty decent dent in a bottle of Baby Saz. The Baby Saz is still one of my favorites but it seems a bit younger than it used to be, with heavier grainy notes. May have to try a SBS with an older bottle from the bunker.

    Yay! The Alabama ABC stores are now carrying all the ingredients for the Sazerac Cocktail. It may just be a Christmas promotion, though. Yesterday, I bought bottles of Sazerac Rye, Herbsaint liqueur, and Peychaud's bitters. I had a Sazerac Cocktail (without the sugar) last evening. Yum!

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013/Winter 2014

    I stopped at an extremely well stocked whiskey bar last night before meeting my brother and some friends for a late dinner. After looking over the whiskey menu, I was starting to think that I was going to leave without getting anything. The price had gone up significantly since I had been there last year. (PVW20 had gone from $23 to $60, BTAC had gone from $17 to $40). Anyway, I flipped to the rye section and when I spotted Hirsch 21 rye for $17, I knew I had a winner. I followed that with a taste of Ritt 23. It was my first time to taste either. Both were outstanding pours.

    Hey Tim, those were the very ingredients that started me on my whiskey journey. The Herbsaint rinse really makes that drink. I go without sugar, or if I'm feeling particularly lazy I use a 1/4 tsp of agave syrup ... I might have to make myself one to remind me of my "roots" and kick off the weekend properly - cheers!
