Had the pleasure of experiencing this rye whilst trying to make the ultimate Manhattan. For the money (cheap as) it's a beauty! Proper whiskey-dry, no sharpness in the throat (unlike many bourbons of the same price), perfumed almost heady on the nose. You really do want to smell it as much as drink it. And the Manhattan's..? Well, shaken over ice with a splash of Antica Formula Vermouth, a maraschino cherry & the tiniest drop of Boker's Bitters...Wow! Recommended.
