    I've got the fire cranked up and all is well with the world. Would def be interested to hear your thoughts on how those two stack up against one another!

    WTRR won best nose and mouth feel on my end. However, Dickel took best of show, as its just a perfect balance of flavor with nice medium finish that just begs you to take another drink. The WTRR has a longer finish, but just leans a touch toward too much wood and hay IMO.

    Trying to polish off a bottle of High West 16 year rye, batch 6. This one isn't too different from Baby Saz poured side by side.

    It went so well last night that I'm back on the Dickel/WTRR train tonight.

    I think I preferred the WFE by a nose. HW DR is a little more expensive in Indy (a few $) but easier to find. I have a store close to me with a small stash of WFE. I think the HW DR is easier to drink but it is a little weaker on the bold rye flavor that I like. Both have a nice grassy flavor, sweet but not overpowering. I ended up following up those two with a pour of Jeff 10 Canadian NCF which I really like but it was the weakest pour of the night. Who knows, next time, I may rank them differently.

    I swear every time I pour a rye, I think of you. Of all of the rye posts, you seem to like the same ones that I do.

    Its a tough job! Nothing too fancy, but some damn fine drinking if I may say so. I really enjoy that WFE 4 as well and you are correct, as it certainly does have a bold, but enjoyable, profile! It just seems to do a happy dance on my tongue.

    Huh, Trey?

    Haven't heard this before.

    Haven't tried either but always heard rave review on HW16 and very good for price on Saz Jr.

    Enjoying the company of a Ritt BIB while the family sleeps.

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

    First time trying WFE 4 year tonight and really liking it. Really thick mouthfeel and building flavors as it passes through my mouth and in to my throat. Hard to describe. I like it. Not as in your face (or my face, anyway) as something like Ritt BiB but I'm really enjoying it. Would definitely buy it (this was just a two ounce sample from a buddy) over Baby Saz. Not sure which I'd choose between this and Ritt BiB.

    The last pour of my Willett 4 yr, with a tiny bit of some Willett 25 yr for good measure. Wow - a little of that goes a long way, great mingle!
