    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Spring/Summer 2014

    Nothing fancy. Bulleit 95 and Dickel Rye which are very affordable, tasty and make a nice cocktail when mixed with Vernor's ginger ale. The perfect drink when it's blazing hot humid!

    Arguably they already have a solid 4 year old release drawn from that well of rye up in Indiana.

    True, but you can get that other places, even though I think there's something about what Willett does than generally produces a better product. I really look foward to pure Willett.

    Hmmm, so with the amount that willett seems to be producing, have they stopped getting rye from up north? Can't remember seeing anything on that.

    What they do is put it in a very attractive bottle.

    Aha. yeah, I was thinking that stock was in barrels. Wow that's a lot of bottles. Or maybe it isn't - I have no idea how much they're selling. It would really be cool to know about some sales figures sometime, just for fun.

    I think Willett has some really great rack houses, and those two hills (along with Heaven Hill) sure do seem to consistently put some beautiful age on whiskey. Something about that microclimate?

    We'd better stop enjoying this discussion before the thread drift police come along.

    Indeed. Would a friendly mod mind moving this tangent of a discussion to the 2 year Willett rye thread where it properly belongs? Apologies for the sidetracking...

    Happy to add these two into my home bar. Saz 18 I'll save for another time to taste but I'll crack open Old Potrero tonight.
