Knob Creek 9 Year Bourbon, Jefferson 10 Year Rye, Jim Beam Rye, Seeking a Good Rye

Well the KC 9 Yr was on sale recently and now I know why. Harsh up front and not much on the follow through, just poor stuff.

Also tried the 100% Rye (Canadian) Jefferson 10 Yr. Decent stuff, but in the end nothing special.

Also, I was making some Sazeracs with a mix of Jim Beam Rye, and Rittenhouse. Actually the combo makes a nice Sazerac. That said, tried some of the Jim Beam alone on ice and I have to say it was pretty flabby stuff. Fine for mixing, but does not stand up on it's own. JB Bourbon is my everyday, and I am really looking for a modestly priced every day Rye. Old Overholt ain't bad, but really can't stand up to sipping. Bulleit is okay, but pricey for what it is. The Wild Turkey is not bad, but really not worth $24 a bottle that it costs here in MA. Hmmmm.
