    I have not, but I would love to hear about it, if you try it.

I was going to vat it with some EC12 but the open bottle is getting low and while I have a bottle in the bunker and I can find it easily enough, the price went up $3 here recently and it is so good on it's own I wanted to be able to finish what's left in the open bottle neat.
    I tried the FC103/Templeton the other night and it was still bit heavy on the Templeton Rye so I decided to vat the rest of the Templeton equal parts with WT101 and OGDBIB which ended up being an 18 ounce vatting so I hope I like it.

    There was about 1 ounce of Templeton left that I dumped into my #lastpours decanter so I could finally get rid of the bottle from my open bottles shelf.

    This turned out to be decent enough, on my 2nd neat pour. I also decided to mix the other 2 templeton vattings together in an empty 750ml bottle and added 6oz of BT to try and knock down the rye a bit more. I will be drinking templeton vattings for a while...

    Re: The Madvatter strikes again!

    Has anyone tried a vatting of 3 Ryes, Ritt, Dickel & Bulleit?

    I enjoy all three, thinking Bulleit to be the best, of the bunch!

    I plan on doing an equal parts vatting of all three today, probably 12oz total. I'll let it set for a week and then give it a try.

    Hey Johnny, I'd recommend tasting as soon as you vat it, just to try it, then come back to it and see if it changed......why not?

    That's a good idea. I will do that. Thanks!

    I've not done a three way rye vat (on purpose at least), but in my experience MGP does not usually play well with others. I look forward to your thoughts, and good luck Johnny!

    I put my 3 Rye Vatting together today and then let it sit for about an hour. Took a light pour and started tasting. WOW! there is some forward heat, more than I expected and the hit of Rye Spice was way up there, strong. then the flavor mellowed out, very smooth. For me, the mouth feel is a tad heavy and syrupy. After finishing the pour, I find that I really like what I experienced, especially the heavy, up front Rye Spice. It's too soon to make any claims but right now, I like it better that either of the 3 Ryes used, individually. Of the 3 I used, Bulleit would be my first choice.

    Bulleit and Dickel are the same source albeit the Dickel has the charcoal mellowing. I wonder what difference a slightly different mashbill for a third rye would make. Maybe early Jefferson's from Alberta (or whistle piggy) with 100% rye or CEHT rye with the presumed 90ish% rye mashbill?

    Can't recall if anybody has a readily available 65ish% rye mashbill that is at least 4 or so years old.
