    Whisky and Rye

    [​IMG]

    A fifty fifty mix.

    According to an American mate this is very old school Americana from the days when you'd order a shot of local rot gut and mix it with Canadian rye (made by professionals who weren't hiding in a barn from the Po-lice or Revenoo) to make it palatable. He recommends 2 parts Marker's Mark to 1 part Canadian Rye for a passable immitation of what Jack Daniels No7 used to be. All I had was a Malt from Seattle which is considerably more assertive than MM.

    Now, where are me old Don McLean records...

    I love a good rye in a cocktail.
    I've mostly been drinking Manhattans over the last few weeks. 2 parts of (the excellent) Knob Creek Rye to 1 part Dolin Red Vermouth. Some bitters stirred over ice and served with a twist of lemon in a coupe. The perfect way to signify the end of the working day and it makes me feel like Don Draper.

    JugV2 Simply boring. Moderator

    Just had a birthday and received a bottle of Canadian Club which is nice. I prefer a bourbon and had to hunt far and wide to get a bottle of Basil Hayden in this town.
    Top drop if you like it over ice or even with a wedge of lime.
    I just can't drink Beam or Turkey, Makers is sometimes tolerable.
