Need Rye Whiskey recommendations. Will probably get a bottle at Costco tomorrow so something quick would also be appreciated.
I like single malt scotches but dislike blends until it’s Johnny Walker Blue territory (which is totally not worth the price performance trade off).
But I’ve tried a few Rye’s that have been decent and easier on the wallet. Typically enjoy these on the rocks. Just now enjoying the end of 750ml worth of Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, which is 90% rye.
Please recommend a good rye in the lower end spectrum. Something priced along the lines of the Northern Harvest Rye, Jim Beam Rye or JD Rye.
Also recommendations for a bucket list or special occasion splurge mainstream rye
Craft Rye whiskey. Including thoughts on Woodinville, which is just up the road.
Why the difference is rye %? The Northern Harvest Rye seem to be at the upper end of rye % at 90%. IIRC, some rye’s are more like 70%. How’s that impact the flavor profile? Do aficionados prefer the higher % rye or lower?
I’m sure I have more questions but the above is a good start. As always, thanks in advance.
