    Re: Which Rye to Try?

    The Ritt BIB is outstanding. Given it's very low price it goes on my list of best all-time bourbon values too.

    Re: Which Rye to Try?

    Haven't tried Rittenhouse. In fact, I don't recall having seen it at my local poke store.

    I'm quite fond of the Wild Turkey. I believe it's 101 proof, just like the bourbon. I'm just too lazy to go upstairs to look.

    I can not tolerate Beam Rye. It has a young, grainy flavor that I find very unappealing. I did, however, manage to make it taste a little better:

    We also did a blind tasting with the three Turkey-Family ryes. Long story short: A dusty bottle of 101 Rye won the contest. Current 101 Rye came in second. RRR90 came in last by quite a bit.
