Enjoying some Sazerac Rye this evening. Don't often venture into rye much these days. 

 

Decently priced here, £35ish, and widely available. Good stuff.

We are still cleaning up from Hurricane Laura (just some stuff we haven’t gotten to yet). I was in my shop and came across a wine box that was heavy, damn the luck, it has 5 Rittenhouse BiB Ryes (KY35

Wild Turkey Rye just goes so well with Fall.  

This showed up today, thanks to an eastern connection. Super excited about it!

Finally found my own EC Rye! Brought a friend home with it as well.

I had to pack out an order with Master of Malt for free delivery and thought I'd try a sample of Sonoma Cherrywood Rye. 

I won't be buying a bottle, let's put it that way.

I hit the bunker and pulled out Rittenhouse BIB.  I'm having a pour to start the week end. 🙂

I had zero owls. Guess I'm building that set too now. Batch one I think will be the difficult one. Also haven't tried the kc, thought I'd give it a spin this weekend.

Did you try either Owl? I’m a fan of the pour just not the price on these. Batch 1 is my favorite but they’re all pretty good

I have had the fortune to have sampled #1,2,&3 in the past. I however didn't own any. I liked all of them. I figure I'll just work on completing the set. There are batch 4s everywhere right now.

I'm major catoctin fan.  It's a couple that both have chemistry backgrounds.  When they 1st started, I grabbed their white dog rye, smooth as patron, and been hooked ever since.  A regret, they had a pomegranate brandy for maybe $70/375 and I passed, and been wondering ever since.  Catoctin can be pricey but they deliver quality.

Knob Creek Single Barrel Select Rye, 115 proof, Virginia ABC pick, 6 year old.   1st impression hot and smooth at same time, hot on top and base of tongue yet silky smooth flavors on front of tongue.  Odd!  No aftertaste.  Over all impression poor or mediocre at best, give me an EC rye instead.  Normally I switch between lots of different sips for comparison, but tonight decided to hang with this rye to see where it goes.  Glad I did.  The heat quickly leveled out.  Initial flavor became more complex.  An aftertaste began to develop and became a lingering enjoyable experience.  Only problem is I just took a gulp forgetting 115 and it took breath away.  Price point $50 which I think good value.

I love it and wish I had bought a couple more bottles. I didn't want to take the chance that the distillery picked a dog for the Va ABC.  It's always a crapshoot with those ABC "picks"

So, I am noting some similarities between this KO Rye and RRSIB Rye & WTRB Rye. Hmmmmm.  

I wonder..........

 

More research is needed.....I volunteer!!  😀

A four year MGP rye at 50% ABV from the Proof and Wood folks. Well worth the $21.00 price tag.

The full rye line-up from today-- the single barrel Sazerac should be interesting.

The single barrel Saz have been good. I have tried 4 different store picks. I still haven't got the one I helped pick yet. They are waiting till the store opens back up from the Hurricane damage to release it.

How did you fare with this week’s flooding— so unexpected. Hope all is well in Lake Charles.

Opened up a Michter's barrel strength rye.  It's been awhile,  probably over a year, since I killed my last bottle.  I think I picked up this particular bottle in 2017 in a small town, and believe it had been sitting around for awhile. Ahh those were the days

Now sipping some JS SiB BP Rye while listening to some Neil Young.  Good combo.
