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

    Lot 40 2012 and a McKenzie Rye from 2013. Both outstanding. I like the McKenzie more- very different.

    Nice, haven't had the McKenzie but love the Lot 40. Planning on picking some up tomorrow on a fun day out with the misses sans children!!!!

    She is a keeper boys, for the first stop of the day she suggested that we stop by a store that I happen to like. Gotta love that when she is making the suggestion!

    I've been on a Dickel run this week and plan on continuing same tonight. Best bang for the buck rye in the land IMO.

    Dickel also, pretty good stuff, vigorous, honest whiskey.

    But question: is this stuff straight rye? The label speaks of rye mash, which suggests aging in new or reused barrels. I know the whiskey gets the maple charcoal hit at the end before bottling, which would lend a little surely, but certainly not all, the character a straight would acquire from new charred aging.

    I'm sure this has been discussed before (or has it?) but I can't find trace of it.

    Well we know it comes from Indiana but the way GD processes it after they receive does give a unique taste when compared to others sourced there.

    The typical MGPI straight rye 95% rye mashbill found in many things that is aged at MGPI and then filtered through maple charcoal before bottling. The Dickel rye is not called Tennessee rye presumably because it is not made there and never even makes it to Tennessee. The filtering is apparently done in Illinois at the Diageo bottling facility after the whiskey is tanked over from MGPI. Although supposedly the maple charcoal is made at Dickel in Tullahoma and then trucked to Illinois. Such is the way with the multiheaded beast that is Diageo I suppose. The filtering tends to take a bit of the typical MGPI rye herbal minty quality away to me but in a good way.

    Different from standard GD whiskey which is filtered when it comes off the still before it is barreled.

    Right, but Bruce, how do we know this particular whiskey was aged at MGPI in new charred barrels?

    Nice pour of Ritt BIB (DSP-1). Just a great pour for the price
