It was spicy as expected but also very sweet - had a little bit of "grain silo" on the palate that I didn't really like but otherwise, it's related to the wonderful Willett24/55% I had IMO.

Very much enjoyed this pour and it was made better due to the company & having a reason to pop the bottle.

I plan on revisiting this and wrapping my palate around it some more :-)

My little brother is in town and apparently has developed a fondness for gracefully aged ryes so we decided to crack this tonight:

Been drinking Baby Saz, Jeff 10 UCF, and ETL tonight. Binny's recently have gotten shipments of Baby Saz, so I've picked up one for me and one for a friend. Now I don't feel bad going to town on my bottle that's been open forever.

Whoops. Sorry, mods. Forum wasn't showing the other Fall thread for some reason. I knew something was off. Please merge.

Had the opportunity to sample Lock Stock and Barrel 2 days in a row and can honestly say I am not a fan. It starts of very light on the palate and has a very light rye spice, the finish is fairly long but it is so drying can not say I have had a dryer finishing rye.. It is odd as I love the Alberta Jefferson and Whistle Pig but this totally did not agree with me...

So to make up for it I shared a sample of the 24 yr willett with my whiskey guy... needless to say all smiles after that.

Took a chance and cracked this open tonight:

1977 Old Overholt PA Rye - 43%

I've been interested to try this. How is it?

Different than the other Ryes I have open... smoooooooof

Molasses, licorice, maple syrup, not very spicy - you get some rye flavor though - the finish goes on long...

Edit: More like Sarsaparilla than licorice... reminds me of:

Hey Song Sarsaparilla (Taiwan - but much smoother / without the bite)
