  • I figured a new thread was in order for the warm months    Picked up a few Pikesville at Costco for $44. Also got a 1L WT101 Rye for $35 after not being able to find it anywhere, only the 81 proof.

  • A 6 y/o Templeton Rye popped up on the Michigan new items list a few days ago. Has anybody seen a label for this or heard anything?

  • Since my son and his family live 400+ miles away from us and he's not a whiskey drinker, I always keep a bottle at his house for when we visit. Right now it's a Ritt DSP-1, my first one that's not a DSP-354 and I have to say it's been a hit or miss pour for me. I've been working on it for probably 8 months (we try to get out there once a month). This last Friday it was harsh and nasty, Saturday it was OK but certainly nothing to get excited about. All is well though.......came home tonight and brought out the Ritt 23yr. Damn this is delicious!  

  • This just showed up in Virginia so I picked one up even though I'm not a huge Rye guy.  70% Rye mashbill, 4 years old 94 proof.  This surprised me a little because I wasn't a big fan of the rested rye from a couple years ago.  That had tons of banana in it and this has none.  It's nice and spicy with a hint of cherries.  Some nice oak and a tiny bit of vanilla.  Good long finish with a little kick to it.  No Dill pickle or mint to be found (which is one reason I don't like many ryes).  Very enjoyable

  • Probably going to rankle a few feathers, but this one has me interested (depending on the price).  http://recenteats.blogspot.com https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=16034001000224 What do you think the going price will be these days? An age stated 7 year rye - something around $80?? Thoughts?  

  • I saw a bottle of this on a shelf . Is it a good rye and is it worth 79.00?  

  • I love the spicinesss of ryes but I really like them when they have a sweet fruity taste up front.  Can you please give some brands that would be like this?
