Someone’s got to go first, before I’d try
I have to say, I found that Jim Beam rye (green label) undrinkable, and I love rye whiskeys.
Our local shop gives us the opportunity to purchase one high-end bourbon each year around the holidays.
This year was hinted to be George T. Stagg, which I love.
However, they changed their mind and instead offered Pappy Van Winkle 20-year.
My favorites are Hudson, Booker's, and Templeton (yet to try Pappy). What do you guys think about Redemption Bourbon/Rye?
OK, the local shop has topped themselves again.
After Annette read 'em the riot act about offering George T. Stagg via their Facebook page (which we don't use, so basically excluding us), they produced a bottle from behind the stash pile.
So, amazingly, we will do a blind taste test between GTS and Pappy 20-yr.
Like being in bourbon heaven
Anyone try the port finished whisky from Dingle? It has some really great marshmallow and nutty notes to it. Price is a little steep but it's highly enjoyably.
I've been really into Blanton's for the last year or so. Just seems like a really drinkable whiskey and a nice detour from the rye I normally drink.
Blanton's is very fine bourbon indeed. Its price has increased over the years, testament to the quality and high demand.
Finally got around to tasting the two uber bourbons from Christmas, to celebrate Valentines Day.
Both are incredible in their own way ... the Pappy is 90 proof and the GTS is ~127 proof. Had to use an ice chip in the Stagg
In the background is regular Buffalo Trace, decent bourbon at very reasonable price.
I have tried a handful of ryes, most recently Bulleit. Anything I should make an effort to find? (I'm in the UK)
I'm not sure if you can find it, but one of my favorites was always (ri)1. It's getting pretty scarce even in bars and liquor stores around my part, but it's a solid rye.
Whistlepig is decent.
I just finished a bottle of Whistlepig and I support this statement.
I had some Angel's Envy Rye that was great (~US $80.00) but don't know if it's available in the UK.
I third the recommendation for Whistlepig ... very decent.
Here's the Amazon.UK list of bourbons, some are very nice. Happy shopping & sipping!
There''s not much rye in that search, but quite a few in the first page of this one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=straight+rye
That reminds me. I have a bottle of Sazerac Rye to try. I'll keep an eye on the Whistlepig, though there are some very expensive ones out here!
Can't find any (ri)1 or Angel's Envy over here.
