Rye (Continued): More recently, I've been comparing ryes from traditional mass-market bourbon brands: Wild Turkey vs. Jim Beam. They're both very cheap, price-wise; Beam more so than Turkey. Both have flavors that are more muted than the MGP ryes discussed above -- in that regard, they're somewhat reminscent of Canadian whiskeys (of which Pendleton's and Collingwood really stand out, to me). Beam Rye, to my surprise, was infinitely better than their bourbon, and the taste to cost ratio means that, although I'll preferentially keep smuggling in Dickel's Rye by the bottle when I can, at least I'll have something affordable to drink here in PA, too.
At the other end of the spectrum, I really, really want to try Mt. Vernon Rye, reputedly made using Washington's original recipe -- George supposedly supported his whole estate and ran for president on the proceeds of his rye sales. Alas, that stuff is hard to get.
