For my Manhattans I seem to go old school and basic in my whiskey...

I try all sorts of spirits. I probably have 60 bottles of liquor at home. Someone on the Boston Board recently convinced me to thy the reincarnated Rittenhouse Rye in my Manhattans.

Way too sweet. I like Jim Beam white or Old Overholt better.

Heck, I've ranted on this before, but a lot of the (old sounding) new whiskeys are just too pumped up for my palate. Straight or in a cocktail I like my brown liquor a little leaner a little less overdone. These days even Jim Beam Black, an old favorite of mine, has just a bit too much going on.

Maybe I'm getting old...
