    Re: What Rye are You Drinking? Fall 2013

    Whoops. Sorry, mods. Forum wasn't showing the other Fall thread for some reason. I knew something was off. Please merge.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Fall 2013

    Had the opportunity to sample Lock Stock and Barrel 2 days in a row and can honestly say I am not a fan. It starts of very light on the palate and has a very light rye spice, the finish is fairly long but it is so drying can not say I have had a dryer finishing rye.. It is odd as I love the Alberta Jefferson and Whistle Pig but this totally did not agree with me...

    So to make up for it I shared a sample of the 24 yr willett with my whiskey guy... needless to say all smiles after that.

    Different than the other Ryes I have open... smoooooooof

    Molasses, licorice, maple syrup, not very spicy - you get some rye flavor though - the finish goes on long...

    Edit: More like Sarsaparilla than licorice... reminds me of:



    Hey Song Sarsaparilla (Taiwan - but much smoother / without the bite)

    Jeff rye NCF. Definitely taste better as it sit and open up after you pour.
