A few weeks ago I was in Pittsburgh. Went to a liquor store and picked up one of the bottles I've been wanting to try for awhile now -- Wild Turkey Rye.

Just cracked it open yesterday. Verdict? It's very very good. Nice smells -- maybe a little like honey? -- and an incredible finish. Definitely try it if you haven't already. Personally, I think Old Overholt's still my favorite, but this has definitely skipped over Jim Beam Rye to land in second place. (I've, ah, only tried three rye whiskeys, so admittedly it's a short field.)

WT Rye does indeed have a honey smell to it, as does WT 101. (Personally I think Knob Creek is the honeyest of the bourbons I have tried. No whisk(e)y is as honeyed as Balvenie Double Wood Scotch, though, at least to my senses...)

I have not tried either of the Beam Rye offerings but I have a well-worn bottle of VR 13YO that I prize.

waiting for the some spare change to collect so I can jump on Chuck Cowdery's alert and get some Old Potrero from Sam's...

That shoulda been "VW". I'm thinking Van Winkle, and typing (V)anwinkle ®ye.
