    Pikesville Pennsylvania Rye

    I came across a couple of older bottles of Pikesville Rye today. They were bottled in Bardstown but distilled in Pennsylvania. Also they were bottled at 86 proof which is higher than the regular Pikesville. The age statement is 4 yrs old. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this whiskey or knows anything about what distillery it came from? I'm wondering if it's the same whiskey as the Old Overholt 86 proof from the same era? Thanks.

    Re: Pikesville Pennsylvania Rye

    Okay, so I did a search (which I should have done in the first place) and came up with this:

    Looks like it might be Michter's. Wonder if it will show any better at 86 proof since I assume the whiskey from the old thread was 80. I actually like the softer taste of some of the Pennsylvania distilled 86 proof Old Overholt I've had. May have to do a head-to-head comparison.

    It is Michter's. And it's delicious, albeit a touch earthy.

    I would love to read your impressions should you decide to open a bottle.
