IMG_1587.thumb.JPG.a798940e70199278bcdfa28884640f17.JPGI picked up a WP Boss Hog 3 this past week. I really enjoyed the 13y. The color on the 14y is much darker then the 13y, I know it's a SB so it could just be this particular barrel. I'll let y'all know how good it is when I open it.

I picked up my first bottle of Rittenhouse BIB and am very impressed by it. A very rich flavor that agrees with my palate(hopefully someday I get better at identifying the flavors so I can give a more in depth review). But it's good!

Seen these sitting on the overstock/reduction area of the liquor store I special ordered a bottle at. Asked how much if I took all 6 and they marked it down further. Paid 36 for first bottle and I didn't think that was to terrible.  Had to chuckle when I got home and checked the numbers on thr bottom. Same case:rolleyes:

One of my stores had a case of baby saz at $29.99 so I grabbed a couple more to stash. Other than in New Orleans, that's the best price around me. Also grabbed a bottle of Pikesville at $55. I can sometimes find it at $45 after a coupon but that store hasn't had it in stock in a couple months and I've gone without. It's one of my favorites.

Passed on Pikesville today at Sams for $46.58. Shouldn't have in retrospect.

Basil Hayden Rye after trying it at a tasting.  Pretty good even at 80 proof

Actually purchased my first bottle of Rye today.  I was picking up a bottle of Old Forester Single Barrel and at the check out I looked over and spied something I'd never seen in town before.  I nodded at it and the guy said sure, he had it up front for another guy but had some more bottles so I said I'll take it.  Brought this home.

Checked out one of my go to's and was able to try the Basil Hayden rye - meh. They had an Old Maysville Club, from Old Pogue. Bottled in bond.  Tastes like rye is supposed to taste. Baking spices, smooth, full finish. NAS, but if I had to guess would think around 6 years.  $50 and, to me, fair value for what is in the bottle.

^^^ I think this is aged four years, 100% malted rye and pot still distilled.  I'm sure the added two years helped a lot, as the Five Father's they initially came out with was a bit grainy and rough.

 

@ $50, doesn't seem like a bad deal.  Thanks for posting!

Maybe not th best gauge, but I used the color as the primary factor in gauging its age. Thanks for the info!

Huh, you musta' had the same bad bottle of BH Rye that I got!.  Glad it's not JUST me (or maybe it is?).  Everyone else here seems to love it!?!  :blink:

No rye character in the sample I had. I'd far prefer the Rittenhouse rye or baby Saz. If you can find some, the Maysville Club won't disappoint.

I think it's a stretch to say that everyone here loves it. Only a few have tried it that I'm aware of. Collective jury is still out on this one.

My curiosity got the better of me and I bought a bottle of the Basil Hayden rye. I'll post some notes over in the BH rye thread when I open it, which should be soon.

Hmm, that damned curiosity can get you into trouble...

Far too many times! Often with young grainy ryes like Corsair, Corbin Cash, Goldrun, Resurgens, Oppidan. Or Jack Daniels! I kept thinking one of these times I was going to find one I liked.

 

I am now out of that business! Probably...

 

At least the BH rye is not young.

Yeah that Goldrun was rough. I bought a bottle of the Corbin Cash after trying (and liking) it at Whiskeys of the World in SF a few years ago, though it's quite possible my palate was in tatters by the time I tried it that night. Hopefully that doesn't turn out to be dog whiskey when I finally open it.

 

Good point about the BH. Still, I'm not surprised it is getting some very mixed reviews here. In case you don't get to try it elsewhere, I know a guy who just bought a bottle and would be happy to spare a couple ounces...

Thanks. I think I might save samples for things a bit more exotic then BH which I can likely eventually get a chance to try locally.

 

Maybe I am "disremembering" the Corbin Cash.  I will have to try it again.

Bought this on a whim, assuming it is MGP since it's 95% rye, cask strength MGP Rye with age on it isn't as easy to come by around here than it was a couple years ago so 6 years for $60 I was good with.

hmmmm. ineresting, tell us more.

 

 

had some 3 year WFE rye at a friend's tonight. My second time with a second bottle of the 3 year / 110 proof rye. I have to say I like it, and can't wait to see how it is at 4 years, then 5........

 

I still have multiples of SAOS rye single barrel BP at 7-9 years old, but I wouldnt hesitate to try another MGP bottler of barrel proof rye at 6 years....
