Having some JPS 21y rye to end the night.
Gotta love the South. Parents Weekend in Charleston. Huge pour of Sazerac Rye at a bar before dinner. Rare enough in NJ stores. Never seen in a bar. Great rye spice, can see the family resemblance with th 18yo. Think I need one of these.
Rittenhouse BIB. Still one of my favorite ryes and an absolute bargain at $23. And to think that just a few short years ago I used to buy it for a mere $13 before its slow and steady increase in price. (Binny's now has it for $27 and it won't be long before it hits $30. Still good value but the Scotsman in me will be irked.)

Willett 4 yr 110 pr, while I tend the chicken on the grill. This iteration of LDI rye is such a pungent, smack in the face, and spicy animal. Really is tamed with a touch of water, and imparts a wonderful creaminess and fullness to it. Seems counterintuitive.

Following unclebuck on the Ritt BIB bandwagon on this Sunday afternoon. I really need to pick up more of this before the general public figures it out and it starts being scooped up.

Getting towards the end of my bottle of McKenzie. Have really been enjoying this. The dark chocolate/coffee finish has me coming back for more.
