Lock Stock and Barrel Rye Whiskey

We love it when great design teams up with great whiskey, so that's why Lock Stock and Barrel Rye Whiskey ($120) is easy to recommend. It's aged for 13 years in American oak barrels, and is modeled after something even older, the Prohibition era. Before Prohibition, rye was king, and thanks to a new group of great ryes like Lock Stock and Barrel, it's experiencing a renaissance. At barrel strength, 101.3 proof, it sounds quite aggressive, but for something this robust, it's actually quite mellow and easy to sip. A limited, rare, high quality whiskey that could help push rye to the forefront again.

  • Willett Family Estate Rye Whiskey

    Whiskey collectors and connoisseurs are constantly hunting for the tastiest and rarest bottles around. Some bottles carry a hefty price tag, while others are just difficult to find. The latter is the case with Willett Family Estate Rye Whiskey ($35) which isn't outside of most price ranges, but not much is made and it's tough to track down. Every bottle contains a hand marked age statement and barrel number, but the amount of each batch rarely exceeds 200 bottles. Despite the 110 proof, it's an easy sipper, with a classic rye mintiness and a clean, crisp finish. Add it to your Whiskey Envy list.

  • E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey

    If you aren't familiar with great rye whiskey, it might be time to get acquainted with one of the best, E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey ($70). Rye Whiskey has seen a resurgence of late, after mostly disappearing after Prohibition. Taylor Rye is made by the same folks who bring you the fantastic Sazerac Rye, but is a totally different recipe. One thing that is not different however, is the high quality it's produced with, and the satisfying taste it yields. A quick whiff brings notes of vanilla, black pepper and dark sugars. Of course the taste meets our standards as well, packing a spicy punch with a satisfying dry finish.
