    Completely agree. Some days I love it straight. But on other days when it is running to hot. Let it breathe. One ice cube and man it opens the flavor up. I love the barrel proof!!

    My two bottles of this and Rittenhouse arrive Tuesday, I can't wait! Now I just need to get my hands on the EHT rye and the winkle rye and I'll be set

    I dunno about that guy's information. Doesn't seem reliable to me.

    And for the record, I like the Small Batch a lot. I haven't had the Single Barrel or the Barrel Proof though.

    Barrel Proof I thought was unimpressive and overpriced (at $70; I prefer Bookers over this one every time). Tornado was pretty great stuff. I thought the rye was decent, but perhaps too pricey for my palate. Obviously, YMMV

    Re: EH Taylor

    How is it that you believe the rye is a different recipe than baby saz?
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Buffalo Trace said so in their press release. Reported here by Mr. Cowdery.

    I found it to be lovely and complex that way, and the finish lasts and lasts. I know drinking a dram of that strength neat isn't everybody's cup of tea, but for the sake of adventure; try it that way. I love it! I'd even say it's my favorite of the Brand-Family.
    I enjoy the barrel proof exactly that way.

    The other night I did blind side-by-sides of the Small Batch, Old Tub BIB, Old Heaven Hill BIB, and VOB BIB.

    Pretty, pretty interesting. If what you're looking for is value, clearly it was the loser, as it was only incrementally better than any of the other participating whiskies. It kind of makes sense as a brand addition though, putting out a Buffalo Trace BIB might have been a good idea before the explosion in interest in bourbon, but not now. Buffalo Trace BIB with a fancier label and price-tag? You bet your britches.

    Same here. I also really enjoy the CEHT BP. It is very different from the other BP offerings and in a very enjoyable way.

    I've had the rye a few and like it--has some real nice spice to it but maybe a tad too much heat. But the price point does make it difficult with other items out there.
