The legend of story during 2015 has finally made his first appearance into Whiskey On The Rails. We finally got Skip to make his first visit in the Hotel Tango guest seat while we enjoyed some Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey. Both of our hosts are avid Rye enthusiasts and look forward to any bottle that makes its way into our studio. This podcast is filled with humor, wisdom and general Skip awesomeness when it comes to our overall review of this Rye.. Bottled in Bond is ready for the rails.. Enjoy this podcast and enjoy the ride.. Train.. Train..
You know it is great when you can bring your friends out and have a great conversation about whiskey. Well in this episode, you can quickly tell that all three have been friends for quite a few years. What does that mean? A great opportunity to talk whiskey and more importantly talk about some awesome characteristics of this Rittenhouse Rye. While we will leave some of those details to the podcast, however if you want to hear some of the items that were left on the floor during our editing, well check out our recordings on our Hotel Tango Periscope line..
When we choose our bottles for the recording, one of three things usually happens.. We are given a great recommendation and go get the bottle.. We are given whiskey or bourbon to taste and review.. OR We randomly go into any local liquor or grocery store and snag a bottle for our recording.. Yes, we see big names and go with them but usually we have been trying to find extremely random bottles for our review. We are starting to learn that Heaven Hill distillery is putting out a bunch of great items and during the podcast we really put our guest to the test to see if he could name anything from that distillery.. I guess we made it too easy since he immediately pulled out Heaven Hill Whiskey..
We are certainly learning, they have an extensive collection of spirits under one umbrella.. We aren’t trying to try everything they have but random selection has certainly introduced us to a collection of their whiskeys, bourbons and ryes… So what we are going to say is simple, go random and see if you pull something from Heaven Hill’s shelf..
Now we will leave a lot of the descriptions in the podcast on how we tried the whiskey across the board and our personal opinions during our tasting.. As always, we gotta thank our sponsors because without them we would be two guys with nothing to drink, nothing to drink out of and more importantly nothing to keep our drinks cold.
