    Would like to read your tasting comments. Love rye but been avoiding these because of the $$$$ and my distrust of them as a NDP.

    Gotta say the Jeff was fine the last time I had it.

    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Fall/Winter '13

    Acquired the Jeff 25 at long last thanks to the great generosity of a local SBer. Had a taste with a few friends last night and we all agreed it is easily drinkable, quite tasty and a cut above the 21. Of course so is the price!

    Not really a good comparison though as that was after a beer tasting of 10+ beers so I hope to settle in with it in a SBS with the 21 for a better impression sometime this week.

    How rye this old can be so lacking in wood is a curiosity and makes me wonder if this isn't Canadian sourced rye of some sort like the early Jeff 10. Of course we may never know for sure.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    It always surprises me how not woody this is for 25 year as well.

    Thanks for the notes and eagerly await the SBS with 21 yr rye.

    Totally hear you. The price gives me pause as well. I have the 21yr bourbon and like it a lot but wouldn't pay the price again. But......I'm willing to try something once, so I gave in and bought the rye. I haven't cracked it yet, but will report when I do.
    I'm also very interested in hearing the SBS comparison with the 25 since it's also available to me.

    Picked up two bottles of Willett 4yr 110° today. It has been a while since I had come across one, let alone two.

    Just grabbed this Smooth Ambler Old Scout 8yr Rye (bottled at cask strength) that was selected by Astor Wines.

    Really feeling this one. Nice to find an option somewhere in between Willett and Handy (as far as bottling proof is concerned).

    Picked up a bottle of Ritt BIB, DSP-1 for the bunker. Love the taste of it.

    picked up a few Willett 4yo ryes--I really enjoy the 5yo and it will be interesting to compare the younger one to it.
