I've only ever tried Jim Beam Rye (the only Rye sold in Australia as far as I know) and Van Winkle 13yo Rye.. My bottle of Sazerac is still unopened. Of the two, I prefer the Beam as an every day drink, keeping the Van Winkle for when I want something special...

Although if the Van Winkle was easily obtained in Australia, I'd definately drink it over the Beam..

Currently have open pours of the Saz18, Hirsch13, and Van Winkle13. Believe I like the VW most.

Funny, but though I don't really love (or hate, for that matter) rye-heavy bourbons like OGD and Bulliet, I've never had a straight rye I didn't like a lot.

In order, from what I've had, I'd rank them thus:

<ul type="square"> [*]Van Winkle 12yo Old Time Rye

[*]Sazerac 18yo

[*]Van Winkle Family Reserve 13yo

[*]Wild Turkey

[*]Jim Beam

I'm still looking for Rittenhouse. Old Overholt is available, but just haven't gotten one yet.

Opened another bottle of VWFRR. I am really enjoying it the second time around. Puzzling. As of yet, it has defied a taste description, this I will have to try more diligently to accomplish the task this weekend. cool.gif

I've only tried Jim Beam Rye, based on Jim Murray's rave review. I just bought VWFR rye and was wondering: since Van Winkle makes their bourbon with wheat as the secondary grain, is theirs a wheated rye? Or do they use corn like most (all?) of the others?
