Michter’s US*1 Barrel Strength Rye

Verdict: Michter’s has made a lot of bourbon bloggers upset due to a perceived lack of transparency when they just began distilling, rebooting the Michter’s name in 2004, after closing in 1989 after operation since about 1753 near Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania. But despite its whiskey being produced in Kentucky, not Pennsylvania, it’s extremely tasty and carries a hefty price tag. In May 2015, the distillery released Michter’s US*1 Barrel Strength Rye Barrel, which notably enters the barrel at 103 proof (lower than most distillers), which costs Michter’s in barrels and warehousing, but which they believe creates “yields a richer, smoother, more full-bodied whiskey.” We tend to agree.

Angel’s Envy Finished Rye

Verdict: This rye is sweet. This is not your spicy, hair-on-your-chest rye. It’s more of an after-dinner rye, a cocktail rye. The sweetness comes from the vintage rum casks that Lincoln Henderson finishes this rye in, and the result won’t please some rye fans, but will win other over that are looking for more of a dessert, less of a barstool brooding aid.

Age: 6 years in new American oak charred barrels, 18 months in Caribbean rum casks

Proof: 100

MSRP: $70+

Smooth Ambler Old Scout Rye

Verdict: Smooth Ambler came along in 2009 and has quickly become a favorite of bourbon junkies. They don’t distill their own stuff, but are very upfront on this — they call this series Old Scout because they are “scouting” whiskeys they admire, blending and bottling them to their own taste. A straight rye whiskey, this is big and bold and perfect for classic rye lovers, although it should be noted that this specific bottling is discontinued. But be on the lookout for more rye from Smooth Ambler.

Age: 7 years

Proof: 99

MSRP: $39+

сегодня ушел из жизни мой кумир - человек, давший людям то, чего они хотели, - слова Джобса
сегодня по пути на работу я узнал об этом из сухого сообщения по радио
сегодня зайдя на сайт эпл, впервые не было рекламы, а только портрет с датой
сегодня я узнал, что он не боялся смерти, а считал ее гениальным изобритением
сегодня я, как и весь мир, осознали утрату гениального человека
