    The V23 just had a depth of character that wasn't quite as apparent in the Ritt 23. Was much darker and quite rich, I thought. Again, the Ritt 23 was absolutely no slouch (and exceedingly more enjoyable than the 25), but there was just something about the V23 that sang to me.

    Though, having had the V21 just a few weeks ago, I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite out of the two.

    Cheers on that Iron Fist. That would be a dream-pour for me.

    To be fair, I pitted the V23 against a Willett 24 year 94 proof rye from 4/10/84...so not exactly a fair fight. I'm sure none of those are slouches...just a different level I suppose. Really looking forward to the Iron Fist...I'll try and remember to take a pic and post my thoughts here.

    Having finished my last VWFRR over the holidays, I'm down to RittBIB354, Jeff10, WTR101 '11, and THH '12. In the past I thought the Handy was the least of the BTACs, but this 2012 bottle is great, and among a couple of my whiskey buds it trounced the 2011 in a SBS.

    I've had two healthy visits with Iron Fist. First visit, I thought it was the best whiskey I've ever had. Second visit was even more enjoyable.

    It's a rye kind of night. THH12 neat and maybe Willett 4 year next.

    AE rye. This is the first pour I've had, and its really good, but I'm not sure if I could drink it for anything else except dessert.

    Dickel rye is hitting on all cylinders tonight. Very balanced easy drinker. Going to follow with WTRR rye for comparison.

    Cold night, more snow. Decided it is a rye night. I am opting for HW DR and WFE 4 Yr.

    I hear ya on that. It is very sweet, but I like it. I also can drink it during Christmas season. I have always thought if it as Christmas in a bottle. I tried to get a bottle for this past Christmas but failed. I will try again soon though.
