The Manhattan is my latest obsession and as much of a fan of Bourbon as I am, it only really works for me with Rye - I guess as it should be drunk.
The problem is that I'm in the UK and the choice is poor. So far I have really enjoyed it with Templeton (picked up from SF), probably one of my favourite American Whiskies. More recently I have used High West Double and been more than happy. Now I am looking at the other options easily available to me:
Redemption (incl High)
Smooth Ambler 7 year
Any of these worth trying, or to be avoided, in a Manhattan?
On vermouth, I really like Cocchi di Torino but also saw that I can get VYA Sweet vermouth. Is this considered a good one in the US for a Manhattan?
