    Just your average whiskey Wednesday at the Twisted Spoke.

    I preferred the Hirsch, but not by much. Hirsch was surprisingly sweet, with an almost creamy quality in the mouthfeel.

    The Willett was an incredible spicebomb. Much more aggressive.

    For what it's worth, both were a few of my favorite ryes I've ever had.

    Started out with a Sazerac coctail made with Smooth Ambler 8yr Rye barrel proof, then moving on to a glass of SAOC rye on its lovely own...

    Man this stuff makes a mean coctail!

    Before dinner I fixed a Manhattan with Willet 4 yr rye (110 proof), the very sweet Carpano Antica vermouth and doubled down on the Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged bitters. I haven't seen a Manhattan that dark before! I wish I could say it was killer, but it was a bit too much. I'll scale back the Antica next time.

    While watching TV tonight, decided to have some SW WSR from 1992. Delicious stuff.

    THH '12. A rye punch in the mouth. Newly opened bottle and can't wait to try this in a top shelf Manhattan.

    Last night was just a fine RITTBIB time. That I can still get this for $19.99 just amazes me.

    WP Boss Hog with raw oysters proved to be an awesome combination.
