Booker’s Rye Review

Booker’s Rye Review

  Booker’s Rye is a 13-year-old, cask strength, non-chill filtered rye whiskey that was laid down in 2003 by Booker Noe, the late Jim Beam Master Distiller. This was one of the last things Booker worked on before his passing in 2004 and comes from a mashbill that’s a lot higher in rye content than… Continue!

Corsair Ryemageddon Review

Corsair Ryemageddon Review

Corsair Ryemageddon is an interesting all rye whiskey made from 80% malted rye and 20% chocolate rye which is a toasted rye grain used to add roasty cocoa notes to anything they’re used in. I really enjoyed this 100% rye whiskey from the night we did the Corsair tasting, the way the rye character of this whiskey rolled… Continue!

Pikesville Rye Review

Pikesville Rye Review

Pikesville Rye is a brand that got its start in the 1890s in Maryland which was the epicenter of rye whiskey production until prohibition crashed the party and ended everyone’s fun. However this scrappy little brand did emerge after prohibition, but after a while it succumbed to the same death as many old brands. Though… Continue!

Thomas H. Handy Rye Review

Thomas H. Handy Rye Review

Thomas H. Handy Rye is basically just cask strength Baby Saz. Aged for 6 years, the 2015 edition of the Thomas H. Handy Rye is a “bigger” version of the always lovely Sazerac Rye which has been a longtime favorite of mine for both sipping and mixing. While it’s been long speculated that Buffalo Trace’s rye… Continue!

The 2015 Sazerac 18 years review

The 2015 Sazerac 18 years review

The 2015 Sazerac 18 years is the last year of the tanked Sazerac – next year will be fresh Buffalo Trace juice. If you’re not familiar with the story of Sazerac 18, and thus don’t know what in the Sam Hill I’m talking about, allow me to fill you in. Back in 2005 Sazerac 18… Continue!

Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey Review

Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey Review

Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey is “one of only three malted rye whiskeys made in the world” according to the distillers, but I can think of 3 others off the top of my head. High West OMG Rye, Lot 40 Canadian Rye Whisky and Highspire Rye. Admittedly Highspire is a new whiskey and they might… Continue!

This FEW Rye Single Barrel was bottled for the Mixing Glass in Costa Mesa, CA and is one of only a handful of single barrels FEW has ever done. I believe it’s only the second one FEW has done with their Rye. As with all single barrels the exact experience of this whiskey is unique… Continue!

Mount Vernon Rye Whiskey Review

Mount Vernon Rye Whiskey Review

This bottle of Mount Vernon Rye Whiskey is sandwiched between two pieces of American history. Distilled in 1934 it came into existence right after prohibition and bottled in 1939 it was sent out into the world to be consumed the same year WW2 started. My grandfather wasn’t even a teenager when it hit the shelf… Continue!

High West Rendezvous Rye Review – Batch: 13F24

High West Rendezvous Rye Review – Batch: 13F24

The first batch of High West Rendezvous Rye I reviewed was from batch 11 and is the bottle by which I compare all others when taking notes and reviewing HWRR. The batch 11 came from my days of living in Utah where we were drinking the good stuff from the first batches on, but those… Continue!

Highspire Rye Whiskey Review

Highspire Rye Whiskey Review

My first thought when tasting the Highspire Rye Whiskey was “ooof, that’s a lot of sawdust”. So I let it sit and open up for about 20 minutes. When I came back to it most of that had blown off and was replaced by a marshmallowy vanilla and tropical-like fruitiness along with some raisiny sweetness,… Continue!
