    Not badly priced, all under $25 at my local BevMo. Some decent reviews too.

    I am going to try some Buffalo Trace that is on sale.

    The 91 point rated Rittenhouse Rye 100 with screw cap is the best of the three. It's distilled by Heaven Hill. Same folks who bottle ECraig and other fine American whiskeys...

    Makers Mark is the equivalent of bubble gum in the real bourbon world. It's not even date stamped. LOL...

    You need to add a jug of Pendleton to this trio. if you like the Rittenhouse, you will love the Pendleton. The one down side of Pendleton is that it apparently comes in leaky bottles - once you pull the cork it just kind of disappears.

    No, Rye is different, think Canadian or Black Bush. I prefer Rye to just about anything else.

    A 750 ML bottle of Remy Martin is $1,999.00.

    And these guys slammed shot410ga with their 25-35 dollar a bottle whiskey.lol


    Tempelton Rye is good smooth drinkin whiskey, plus it's made right here in Iowa with a little history behind it. $35-$50 a bottle depending on where you get it.

    Shannon - a famous Rye that you probably have tried is Crown Royal. In general these are real smooth Whiskey and generally blended. Goes good on the rocks or with a minor dilution with clean water.

    If you like a distinctive heavy bourbon taste, as in Bookers (excellent), I encourage you to try Knob Creek Reserve (not the regular Knob Creek). You may find you like it just as well or better than Bookers. Keep in mind that Knob Creek Reserve, like Bookers, is significantly over 100 proof. Knob Creek Reserve is 120 proof. Where can you get such enjoyment for such little quantity, as in either of these fine bourbons?

    I am ignoring Pappy Van Winkle because it is now so expensive and hard to get.

    We are lucky to live in a time where we have so many great choices in whiskys.

    Wolfram,

    Thank you, I did not know that, even though I enjoy crown fairly often on the rocks with a splash of water. Not much bite but enough mouth to drink alone.

    I also like Wild turkey, the taste agrees with me quite well.

    Shannon,

    I use to enjoy the bird as well - in my college days we refered to it as nature studies. Just a bit too much bite for me these days although I wouldn't pass if a friend were to offer me a WT hiball .... one thing about the old 101 - you deffinately know you had a real drink.
