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

    Ah man, quit wishing my summer away. Just suck it and enjoy your AE Rye!

    Finishing up a bottle of old WTR 101.

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

    Mich 10 rye continues to grow on me. Put it next to Saz 18 right off the bat and it, of course, didn't measure up. But now its developing bit by bit. No surprise really, at least 65% of all rye misses the mark the first time out for me. But generally when I really don't like one, my stubborn mind is typically made up. Then again, put me in front of Rittenhouse 21 and its game over. I surrender.

    Some more Willett 2 year rye. This is a curious whiskey, and I think going back to try again is a good thing (?)

    Honestly, I don't know. But to be sure, I don't dislike it. And if anybody deserves the benefit of the doubt it's the guys at Willett. I'm not a fan of young whiskeys and I really was excited based on some reviews, but it's definitely a young rye (identifiable by the nose easily). But the profile and finish lend itself to an older rye. It's easily drinkable at full proof. At best it's a good whiskey from a great distillery. At worst it's a good sign for the future offerings.

    Nice pour of some BMH 18yr rye. Sure, I know the founding fathers weren't drinking rye with this kind of age on it, but it is the thought that counts

    Moved to some RR 6yr. Fair whiskey, but one that won't be repurchased when gone (and thus, on the target list for expeditious consumption)
