I haven’t had a rye whiskey in years because I didn’t care of it. Thought I’d give it a try because it’s out of Buffalo Trace, and I like everything else they put out.

I like to make an old fashioned with the Saz, but itís a little boring neat.

A week or two ago, I was on a date and settled on a whiskey called ďTin CupĒ.

It was smoothe as sheeeeet ! Better than my old standby Crown Royal Reserve.

I gotta buy a bottle for the casa.

I see the tin cup bottles pretty often, I'll pick up a bottle and try it now. The actual bottle from the store comes with a tin shot glass turned upside down over the cork.

My favorite Crown is XO

I've learned I'm not a big fan of the Rye Whiskey and/or anything around or above 100 proof..... I think the highest I've tried is the Noah's Mill at 115 proof

Give Four Roses Single Barrel a try. It's 100 proof but doesn't drink like it. Very very smooth!

I havenít found a rye I would take given to me.

I like neat, rocks, water... variety. But over 90 neat is rare. This Stagg Jr is 134ish if I recall and3 cubes of ice, let sit for about 2 min and itís awesome

The higher proof seems to have more flavor IF you an manage/tame the alcohol burn. All at one time or another was 130+ they just blend it down to the desired marketed taste. Iíve got some of the ozarks finest here that will crank a cold tractor but with some bottled water to taste itís pretty good... backed down to a drinkable 80-90 proof

So this one is pretty good. Relatively easy to find. Not a bad price. Pretty unique flavor profile.

Noah's mill improves significantly with a bit of water. I love it as it reminds me of bananas foster.

Couple glasses of bourbon 30 for me. Little distillery in between liousville and Lexington. Not bad stuff. This was their cheap bottle. Got it in 2017, which was the first year they bottled.

Hum. I would have guessed the 107 would have been one or two.

Ps. You put a dent in that bottle of W12!

LOL! It wonít survive this weekend!

The 12 and SR are close in my opinion. You can tell the 107 has a little heat with it, but still good.

Picked this up tonight. Love the Bowman distillery, especially their Single Barrel, so will be interested to see how this latest one tastes. Not usually a fan of ďfinished ď bourbons, but I like Scotch that has been finished in port barrels.

Iíve seen the 21 and 23, not the 20. The 23 today had a good palate but the nose was way too much oak.

W12.

My Weller 12 is officially gone, it was great! You could taste the smoke and caramel flavors. Thanks Chase This again!

It decent but I donít think itís even worth the retail price of $99, they have a great marketing story and itís made people a lot of money so canít be mad at that
