I might have to finally try this rye whiskey stuff, it sounds like it might be decent. Is Wild Turkey 81 a good one?

PM me, I'm dying for a taste! Heard it blows all this other stuff out of the water!

I also just left 6 bottles of some family Van Winkle Rye Reserve stuff on the shelves. It didn't say Pappy, so I passed. Plus, 95 proof just sounds like complete firewater.

The WT Rye 81 sucks the 101 was great.

Had myself a pour of VR21 last night followed with a pour from a freshly opened bottle of Pendelton 1910. Pretty unremarkable in my opinion. Very thin at 80p. Will try it again later to see if I change my mind on it.

It is a bit thin but I have found it to make a nice light summer time ginger beer/ale and rye drink.

Just got back from a party across the street. They're pretty good at mixing cocktails, so I had a Ritt BIB boulevardier, the same in an Old Fashioned, and a few other non-whiskey cocktails. They are just across the street after all. :grin:

agreed on the WT80, can't find the 101 around here now. I assume they are just cutting the 101 to meet demand

Nice, Mike. Please throw some notes up here when you have a chance.

On another note, I am so f*cking glad to see hard to find bottles get popped.

The consensus amongst the 5 of us is that the 23 yr Ritt is by far the best of the 3 Ritts. We also had Hirsch 21, angels envy rye, and Bourye. The Hirsch 21 is the overall winner amongst the group!! The Bourye was incredibly disappointing.

Awesome lineup! Thanks for sharing the consensus. Where did AE Rye fall in the lineup?

Well that assessment proves how different palates can be. I have always had the 23 as far behind the other two!

Some Mastersons. Just can't get the curry spice thought out of my head to enjoy it. Plan to replace with a Willet 4yr when it's gone.

Single barrel effect? The 23 is young vibrant and very rye forward, the 21 was very muted zero nose and only a small rye punch the 25 is dark and woody almost too sweet more dessert oriented.

The AE is a wild card, I don't really know what to think of it... It is also a young rye so throwing it amongst 20+ yr ryes is not a fair comparison
