Rye-view

(New York readers will be interested in this New York Times breakdown of where to go to try lots of scotch, published a few days ago.)

Check out this article on the subject of a Rye revival. My San Francisco hosts Trevor and Camille (thanks!) took me to the Alembic where without knowing much about the subject we tried the Best Tasting rye and two of the three Best Values (only to head home and have the third). The article is right, they're all really good. Furthermore it was lots of fun to drink them all together and compare.

And the Van Winkle & Sazerac surely are great value at $38 & $30 per bottle!

Remember that we had the 18-Year Sazerac ($50), which the NY Times was not able to find for their review.

I haven't had the 6-year, but I intend to try it soon.

Aha! No wonder yours tasted better than the one I had at the Whiskey Ward in Manhattan.

Miguel, next time you should try Camille's Sazerac cocktail. It's delicious.
