Stumbled upon this in a swank spot in New Orleans, & sipped it neat, of course. I hear Degbert about the hype of the VW whiskies, and agree that people go overboard in that regard. Nevertheless, VW makes consistently fantastic products. This rye is unique because of the balance of the typical Van Winkle sweetness (thanks to heavier wheat content) and the peppery spices of the rye. It literally melts in your mouth. As big a fan of Manhattans as I am (Mastersons is my current favorite), Id be hard pressed to even use this: it is a rye that is probably best enjoyed neat. Its that good. But! At $30 a glass Im content sticking with Michters or Prichards.

Every year, people call on this, come by, beg us, put their names on a waiting list -- you'd think this stuff was liquid gold or an elixir of youth. Get past the hype, and it's a good, dry, spicy, smoky rye whiskey; but interestingly enough, it's nowhere near as good as the hype. I doubt anything could be, really. So get it if you can, but otherwise, drink Jefferson's 10-Year or Michters or Bulleit. You aren't missing that much.
