flahute Posted December 9, 2021 Share Posted December 9, 2021 The holiday season is here and that's when we all like to break out the special bottles. Most of you know that I get a sweet tooth this time of year and find myself really wanting my wheaters, On the other hand, I recall many of you over the years saying that you really get in the mood for rye this time of year because of the baking spiced you get from the whiskey and how that goes so well with the season. So with that in mind I'm switching it up and going with a rye for the first time in a while. Now, one point to make. We generally like to limit BOTM selections to whiskies that are generally available so more people can participate. We do occasionally celebrate the special ones. Given how every year it somehow gets even harder to get these I'm going to take a liberty here and include any rye you want to talk about - especially if it's your holiday season pour. I'll talk about THH. You all can talk about it too if you have it. Otherwise the floor is open. Though I like my wheaters this time of year, THH is always associated with Christmas to me because that's when I first had it. The bottle I have open right now is a 2013 and it's just a remarkable pour at only 6 yrs old. It is absolutely loaded with baking spices and not as rye forward as others. I'm not in the mood for rye very often but I can always drink this. It's little brother, Sazerac Rye on the other hand, is not one I'm in the mood for often. Something about the barrel selection and proof just put THH over the top so I will sneak it into the mix with all the wheaters I have open. Let us know what rye whiskies are on your list this holiday season! 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
