    **Disclaimer - Lot's of low hanging jokes in here...**

    Last night I got to do a head to head with Michter's SiB Rye (henceforth known as Dickbutt) and Michter's Barrel Strength Rye (henceforth known as W.T.F.)

    I really enjoyed the Dickbutt from the last bottle I had so was curious to this comparison.

    On the nose: Wow what a difference. The Dickbutt smelled like I remember it. Oaky, sweet ish and a little burn. The W.T.F. was way more subdued. Caramel notes ran hand in hand with the oak. really smooth smell. was not expecting that from a barrel strength at all!

    Color: The W.T.F was just a tad darker. little deeper color but not too much

    Viscosity: Dickbutt was about average. not thick, not thin, just middle of the road. W.T.F. was almost syrupy. It coated the glass sides with streaks. Really coats the mouth.

    The Dickbutt had more of that high proof heat to it which was odd as it is a lower proof bottle.

    Taste: Not really close at all. Really hard to tell they were both Michter's Rye products. Even knowing that they were still vastly different whiskies. Both were really delicious with that oaky sweetness with varying fruits on the palate.

    The viscosity of the the W.T.F made the taste linger a lot longer with a little back end heat.

    I really enjoyed them both and they are so different to me that they both could have their place without stepping on each other's toes.

    Just my uninformed opinion anyway.

    Have at all the jokes now :rofl:

    Also, the wife just looked at me and said "double fisting huh?" to which I responded "W.T.F.?! Dickbutt."

    Nice review! I'm going to be doing the same Dickbutt vs W.T.F. head-to-head myself! Hopefully this evening.

    I drank a handful of my ryes on Saturday night. I think I had: High West Double Rye - Gin cask finished, Old Forester Rye, Driftless Glenn Rye, and Sazerac Rye.

    0F2D9F08-5896-452A-90E5-8D25384CCBED.jpg Today was fun, delivering a GTS to a friend and it fell out of my truck, cracking the neck. Yay. Luckily a local friend is trading me his unopened bottle for this one, since he’s opening his for sure.

    Luckily it worked out in the end. I was just going to chalk it up as a loss and chug the bottle and move on.

    Yikes!

    I had a bottle of Stranahan's once. It used to come with a little metal cap that measured 3 oz. Maybe it still does.

    Anyways, I grabbed the bottle off the top shelf of my old cabinet and started to pull it away. I was holding by the metal cap that slid off and the bottle fell about 5 feet on to stained concrete. Remarkably, the bottle didn't have a single blemish. Didn't shatter, didn't crack, didn't look like it nearly met its demise.

    The metal cap got thrown in a drawer and never went back on the bottle.

    I have a video somewhere where I chugged a 2015. People got upset. Not sure why to be honest. It’s fucking whiskey.

    I replicated this tasting just a few minutes ago, with the only difference being the tasting was blind - the wife poured my glasses.

    [​IMG]

    The picture sucks compared to @Misplaced Nebraskan 's. Deal with it. :rofl:

    I'll start by saying which was which so that there is no mystery in reading through the review.

    W.T.F. ended up being the Michter's Barrel Strength Rye and the Dickbutt was the Michter's Straight Rye.

    On the nose, the Dickbutt was light and grassy. It doesn't offend and doesn't stick around much. On the palate, the very typical rye spice and herbs. A bit of light hay and almost a parsley flake taste. The spice "bite" is more like what you get from a peppermint altoid than it is what you get from something like baking spices. It will easily remind you of ryes like Sazerac and Old Forester, but a little more well rounded. The finish is super short, just like the nose. It's enjoyable and I would buy it again when in the need for some more rye, but it doesn't knock my socks off, either.

    The W.T.F., though...man. The nose is excellent. Much fuller and if you take too big a whiff, it permeates your sinuses. The smell of the barrel really comes through. It's enough that it almost smells like a bourbon. Right at the end, you get the spiciness of the rye on the nose. On the palate, it brings a little heat straight away and more of that deep oak char off the barrel. Really viscous, as Zach mentioned. Rather than tasting the light, airy grass/hay from the rye that you get in Dickbutt, you have some layers of tobacco and butterscotch sweetness that subdue all of the fennel and earthiness. The viscous finish leads to a very long, warm, tingly finish. This heat is more of the cinnamon/vanilla extract variety. THIS stuff is outstanding. A SERIOUSLY good rye. Leads me to curse @916carl for ever letting it touch my lips as I'm now on a doomed and/or expensive journey to find a bottle for myself. This is the first time in a while that Midwinter Night's Dram has had a serious run for its money from a rye not named The Boss Hog.

    Yeah... What Bryan said... Much more elegant of a whiskey tater than I. :rofl:

    But cheers y'all. Fresh mow and now making some delicious future vitals courtesy of @Bigdaddy4760 ... Bacon is the secret ingredient.

    Also I second Bryan in blaming @916carl

    So. Damn. Good.
