    This rye could go head to head with pappy. Bender smoking a cigar on the label. Just don't forget the two cheap floozies.

    Re: Bender's Small Batch Age Rye

    Talk about a website to mislead the public. Biggest give away for any whiskey drinker in the know is one water source is high wood river. This was made at highwood in Canada. Why not just say, we do not have a still,if we did, we would not know how to run it. And if we had o make a rye mash we would be up shit creek. But won't you please support our intent to bullshit you? I am sick of these type of folks. Let them get up early, go fight boilers, pumps, mills, cookers, stills, etc. Oh, thats right, they wont do that, so they just bring it in and bottle it.

    Re: Bender's Small Batch Age Rye

    I'm trying to interpret the tech data on the site, it speaks of two barrel proofs one for corn one for rye, any guesses on what is meant? I'd think it is a rye whiskey, 85% rye, 15% corn, distilled in a column still and then a pot still doubler (like bourbon or rye is in the U.S.), but distilled at below 160 proof and hence called rye on the label in the U.S. But why two barrel proofs one for corn, one for rye…?

    Re: Bender's Small Batch Age Rye

    Gary the way I see it is they brought it up. Why mention two separate whiskys when describing the final product unless you are mixing them together.

    Since they are self identifying (proud of?) being uninterested in the technical stuff about whisky maybe they don't actually know the definition of mash bill.
