I think Angel's Envy is some pretty good bourbon, Brando.

Angels Envy Rye is solid too. I don't consider it heresy, but a rye old fashioned is a thirst quencher on the shores of the Ohio after a long day in the plant. It satisfies far more than a beer.

I haven't tried Angel's Envy Rye, but my favorite high-rye mash bourbon is Basil Hayden's. Bulleit Rye is pretty good too, I think.

A rye based Old Fashioned sounds good! I love Old Fashioned, so I'll have to give that a try.

Mrs. BF likes Bulleit Rye, and Old Fashioneds. Don't know if she's tried it with the rye though.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

I've been influenced to try different things based on what you guys have said in this very thread way more than I ever have from some "expert" reviewer. I don't consider myself an expert on anything except on what my own tastebuds tell my brain.

Jim Murray no doubt tries a lot of tipple. According to Murray himself, he claims he samples on average 20 whiskies/day:
Damn, that's pretty extreme!

No matter how big a connoisseur he is or how much experience and influence he has, he's just one man, and he cannot taste stuff for someone else. Different people's taste receptors react differently to the multitudes of complex chemical compounds in things we eat and drink.


Yep, I've said repeatedly that everyone's sense of taste is different... one can only relate one's own experiences.  Sometimes, there is an influence from reading other's evaluations... power of suggestion.  I try to never read about a whisky until after making my own assessment.  More often than not, I try to just give a "good", "not so good" rating.  Sometimes I like to compare tastings, but I'm always conscious that full descriptions are double edged swords... sometimes can influence another's perspective, sometimes can serve as a guide.  
However, "some whiskeys are REALLY good... some are just not as good as others". 
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

I found a bottle of Angel's Envy in Yuma for $17.95... I didn't buy it because I was leaving the next day and my bag was already overweight.  As it turns out, I got upgraded and could have transported it... win some, lose some.

My nephew's best friend came by to put corn out for the deer. He is an Army pilot and just got back in country from flying command staff around to 13 different countries. He picked up a bottle of rye whiskey for myself and Mrs. BF because he knows she likes rye whiskey.
Mrs. BF looked it up (it's Colonel E. H. Taylor made by Buffalo Trace), and it retails for $180 a bottle. This stuff is awesome! We love it, but now the problem is, when I try to pour myself a small shot, Mrs.BF runs over, smacks my hands, and says "MINE". She doesn't want to share with anybody.
I'm not sure, but I think I heard her call it her "Precious" the other night.

It's only twosies or threesies... the Walmart here in Yuma gets some really good whisk(e)ys now and then.  When they don't sell at the regular price (snowbirds are cheap) they put them on sale and sell out.  Next time you see it, will be regular price again... or higher than before.

I got a bottle of Macallan 12  for $21.99 a couple of tests back.  A good friend and I had a few drams and I left him the bottle.  He was waiting on me to help finish it, but it looks like that won't happen now.
