    Rittenhouse straight rye 100proof.

    Cinnamon and vanilla custard. Lots of soft spices mingles in palate, and a light spicy lingering finish. Very smooth for 50%
    I like this

    I just refilled the barrel with Carlyle scotch. And it can just stay in as a decanter.
    Not the best brand I'm sure buy the big 1.5 liter bottles where on sale for $18.00 and at that price I thought it wouldn't hurt to fill the barrel with.

    Into a heavyweight today.. Aberlour A'Bunadh.. this is batch 63, and comes out of barrel at a powerhouse 61%, or to Americans, 122 proof.
    Spanish Oloroso casks galore and its very much christmas cake time.. tbh it needs a bit of water, but surprisingly not that much.

    Superb.



    edit... powerful stuff and quite addictive.. i will try to keep it for special

    It is a step above makers mark in my opinion.
    It is also made by Heaven Hill.

    I put 2 liters of Carlyle in the barrel, To improve on it some.
    I got a big jug of blended Islay scotch, as it is no longer imported so it was really,really cheap .
    And a bottle of Bottled in Bond Jim Beam.
    grant, feel free to comment if you know of these scotches. I know they are the shelf closest the floor but sometimes even budget brands can be very enjoyable.
