    Re: What rye are you drinking Spring/Summer 2014?

    Cold, crappy and rainy day here that called for some ever reliable and faithful Dickel in my glass.

    Re: What rye are you drinking Spring/Summer 2014?

    Some JEP 1776. I'm really happy with this 2 yr (sorry, aged "over 2 years") rye. Need to do a blind tasting against the newer Ritt BIB (which is 1/3 less expensive) and my Willett 4 yr (which is 1/3 more expensive, but higher proof as well).

    Finishing off a bottle of Jeff 10, Canadian, NCF, batch 11. I have enjoyed this bottle.

    Enjoying my first small pour (neat) from a bottle of Bulleit Rye that I picked up late last year. A very oily mouthfeel lingers on and on ... I like it.

    I'm bad at this. Someone mentioned tea and biscuits for smell in another thread and I'm inclined to agree. Not sure if it's my unconscious love for tea and biscuits (?) but the nose is really incredible and unique. Rye spice is muted on taste by the sherry finish. It tastes like a young rye whiskey with a bit of extra funky grain or malt. Totally unique and interesting and something that'll be a permanent fixture om my shelf.

    Thanks BAO, I appreciate you taking the time to post. I would much rather read someone's first hand impressions in their own words than another high flung canned review filled with exotic descriptors like wet rocks and dewy violet petals.
