Hi! I just discovered this site and board. I'm nowhere near as knowledgeable about whiskey as you guys seem to be, so I hope I can learn some things while I'm here.
Rye whiskey is probably my favorite style of whiskey. Unfortunately it's extremely hard to find (at least where I live, in rural PA). The only two brands easily available to me are Jim Beam Rye and Old Overholt. I love them both, but I think if I had to pick I'd give the edge to Old Overholt. I love the way it kind of sneaks up on you -- first it starts out smooth, almost creamy, then it hits you in the back of the head with that crisp rye finish. (I also like the label, with it's picture of a grim old guy -- presumably Old Overholt himself.)
I'm curious what you guys think of Old Overholt. Also, do you think this style will ever make a comeback?
