Wife found some 375’s of 2013 HW Rendezvous Rye this afternoon while I was looking at the Maker’s mark Christmas display.

 

We might have cleared the shelf (4 375ml bottles.... so really only 2  750ml bottles).

:)

 

Its really damn good.  There’s nothing like that old rye, and this batch seems heavy on the Barton.

Im happy as hell, but more importantly, so is she!

Found a mess of DSP 354 Rittenhouse

Interesting old school stuff— dense and austere, sour versus sweet, black-peppered oak with savory spices— and a great delivery. Takes water well and has a true finish.

Well this is just about perfect today.

 

Goes very well with the leftover seasoned apples that didn’t fit in the pie pan.

Enjoying some HW Midwinter while watching a great slate of college football games. This stuff is working well after a serving of Mrs Kepler's homemade apple pie. Mmmm-mmm

It has been a fantastic holiday weekend so far, and that calls for a drink to match this Saturday evening while I settle down to finally watch some college football.

Gratis WP10 in a go cup from a great Sky Club bartender. The staff at the front desk signaled me through with a wink...

Whilst shelves are being cleared of the WA top 20, I picked up a 2019 Dads Hat Bib, which I believe is the first time that has appeared in GA. I shall enjoy a pour this evening.

The "Inverted Jenny" of rye was discovered when pulling off the tissue wrap once home. Maybe that's why it flew for a kindly $99.00…

I saw a GTS from last year that was about an inch off, but that's a bit obnoxious.

They must've been sipping while bottling.

What did you think of this?

Admittingly, I'm really not a fan of any Beam bourbons. They are just not in my wheelhouse. This is my 1st try with their rye. It is not as spicy as I like a rye to be, but I find it very drinkable neat at 127 proof.

"Inverted Jenny" - that doesn't refer to a very rare postage stamp with a mis-printed upside-down bi-plane does it?  That's a new one on me - please expand my understanding of rye knowledge.  But very slowly since I'm recovering from a large dose of Whistle Pig Boss Hog VI Samurai Scientist from last nght.  Good thing SWMBO was there to drive me home.  ?

Knob Creek rye with lunch at the bar— this is waaaay too sweet for me. This is the first year that the hotel doesn’t have a few allocated bourbons for the holidays— must be a sign of the times.

I'm glad someone else asked - I had no idea what that post was about.

Only a reference to the unusual production defect.

Funny thing was, the same shop had just taken in a Michter's Rye without a front label.

What was the defect? Was the sticker supposed to be on the front under the main label?

 

I don't have a...   ...er...   Handy handy.

Yes-- more like this (not perfect, but at least in the ballpark)…

Love this time of year— the bars typically have “computer problems” that result in gratis pours for cash tips. To keep on thread, a Whistlepig 10.

First time sipping on Old Forester Rye, it was a sample @El Vino was kind enough to pour for me last year, this is easily the best non JD Brown Foreman American Whiskey I have had the high malt in the mash feels noticeable, a really interesting pour.

A pour of this at a local store and bought a bottle of RR SiB Rye to have after dinner. Nice Ryeday the 13th...

How do you like the Redemption? I've had a couple bottles of the High Rye 10 year bourbon (which I really like), and have been thinking picking up the Rye too.
