REVIEW – Henry DuYore’s Rye Whiskey


I’ve had a love affair with ryes the past several years, including a surprising affinity for Crown Royal’s Northern Harvest Rye.

Lawhill


May 12, 2013 (Day 5) – Lawhill The spiciness of rye lends some excellent complexity to cocktails that aren’t present in other whiskeys. That spiciness can also bring out different layers of flavors in other super-powered liquors such as absinthe. Lawhill 2 oz rye whiskey 1 oz dry vermouth 1 dash Angostura bitters 1 dash […]

REVIEW — Bulleit Rye
