I was reading a novel by Walter Mosley a while back, and one of the characters was drinking rye whisky.

I realized, I've never tried rye whisky.

Anybody here like rye?

I was afraid it would be sweet. To me, bourbon is too sweet.

Rye Whiskey led to the banning of me from the Wolf Lake Missouri Synod Lutheran Church at the age of 3.

When everyone stood to sing, I stood on the pew and belted out the only song I knew by heart, one my daddy had taught me: "Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, oh whiskey and rye..if the whiskey don't kill me I'll live 'til I die"

:cool:

Yeah, I think so.

It's also good in an "Old Fashion", but I think you'd find that drink too sweet. They're pretty good on a hot day though.


Ingredients
Old-Fashioned

* 1 sugar cube
* 3 dashes Angostura bitters
* club soda
* 2 ounces rye whisky

Glass Type: old-fashioned glass
Instructions

Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, strong spoon, lipstick, cartridge case, whatever. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye (or bourbon). Serve with a stirring rod.

I kinda like it. I kinda like some bourbons, too.

Give me a decent Islay, or Islands single malt any day of the week though. Jura is my current Islands favourite.

When I drank, which was many moons ago, single malt was my favorite. I have always had tastes far beyond my means!:D

Yep, the good stuff ain't cheap, that's for sure. It's definitely a winter pastime for me. I don't have to travel to get to work in the low months or even work at all if I don't want to, so that's my prime whisky drinking time.

A shot with a 12 gauge is too!

My husband likes rye more than I do. We both like Manhattans (straight up); he prefers his with rye and I prefer mine with bourbon.

Yes, I do! And I also like Rye Beers!

Just last weekend I went to THIS (http://tuthilltown.com/) little distillery in the Hudson Valley and bought some Rye and Single Malt. Up until Probibition, upstate NY was well known for their Rye whiskey- hence, how the Manhattan cocktail came to be.

Perouse the website, it's really neat what they do there.

I bought one of their used 3 gal. casks to use for my home brewing hobby.

I'm a Bourbon loyalist myself, I like the whole Product of America category it's in, and I've had some moderately inexpensive bourbons that can put some pretty expensive scotches to shame. Occasionally I'll drink rye whiskey though.

For the lighter rye whiskeys, like those around 80 proof, I just pout two fingers and glass, and call it good. For stronger ones, like around 100 proof, I'll serve it on the rocks.

I drink hard liquor kind of seasonally. It's still gin season here. I don't mind rye at all. It has a real Americana thing going on. On those rare occasions when I come home and think to myself, "Gee, I need a drink", that drink is most likely bourbon.

If I can make a suggestion, my current favorite this month is Buffalo Trace (http://www.buffalotrace.com/). It's not very expensive, very smooth, light and floral. It works well neat or on the rocks.

I'll give it a try. This thread has me thinking of picking up a nice rye the next time I go to the liquor store, though. Fall will be here before we know it.

Bitters, lemon and sugar! Never fails.
Side effects are projectile vomit, anal leakage, suicidal thoughts, cross eyes and severe cramps. If you experience any of these symptoms, start drinking again!:D
