    Total Wine Rancho Cucamonga had the Thomas H Handy Straight Rye and the Parker's Hertiage Collection Promise of Hope in yesterday, but just a couple bottles left. It was tempting, but I already used my funds to secure some Black Tuesday and BA Autumn Maple yesterday from the Bruery. Oh Well! I'm still working on my Jefferson's 100% Rye which has actually made me prefer straight rye over bourbon, or at least ryed bourbons over wheated.

    That Thomas H. Handy is absolutely fantastic, and had been by far the best Rye I'd ever tasted---until the Pappy Van Winkle. They're both ridiculously complex but very different expressions with the Handy being much sweeter on the palate, where the Pappy is bone frickin dry.

    "those sneaky sons of bitches" was my immediate thought upon hearing the news. What better to build the hype even more and raise the price than a theft and a shortage? Hate to accuse without fact, but it is rather convenient. Could also be a way for them to simply hold some back, "find it", and trickle some bottles out later which would be alright for the unlucky souls that missed the big release.

    Rye whiskey question: has anyone treid any of the following? Would like to get some opinions:
    1. Angels Envy Rye
    2. Whistlepig Rye
    3. High West Rendezvous
    4. High West 21 year old rye

    Just trying to see what else is out there if I miss out on the Pappy 13 y rye. Sounds like I need to try the Handy Straight Rye based on the previous few posts.

    I was just coming on here to ask about Whistlepig Rye.

    (Only because I saw it in Breaking Bad season 5 episode 2 just now.)

    Any good?

    Of the above I've only tried the High West, but am a big fan of their Ryes. They make a few different bottlings and all are worth picking up. GREAT QPR.

    I believe Lunchie has a Rye lovin' friend who said it was outstanding. If she pokes her head in and sees this maybe she can elaborate.

    yes, my friend says i should try this whistlepig rye you all speak of. i had my chance to order it at a bar in DTLA when i was hanging with a friend there before a kings event but i didn't see it until i had to be on my way. i wish i had more to say about it but i haven't spent a long enough time in the area since and therefore haven't had a chance to try it for myself yet.

    Would that DTLA friend happen to be a platinum vixen, and the drink of choice that day a Fernet? Wild guess.

    it was indeed her. she had a fernet. (surprise!) i had some single malt, i forget which. after i was all served up, i spied the whistlepig but i couldn't stay long so i didn't order another. :((((((((((((((((((((((((((
    if i hang with her again in the near future (you know how busy at the bikini factory she is), i'm for sure seeing if they still have any left before i go shopping for a bottle of my own.

    I've been working on the Jefferson's 100% Straight Rye - DELICIOUS! Drinks incredibly well for 100% Rye. Doesn't really need anything to open it up, but 1/2 an ice cube goes nice. Haven't touched the Jefferson Bourbons yet, and probably wont need to considering how perfect the 100% Rye is.
