Van Winkle 13 Years Old, Family Reserve Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 47.80%
8 Showing its age. It seems to have lost a little liveliness but, if you were as rich as this, would you care?

Whistle Pig 10 Years Old Straight Rye

8 The wildness of 101, tempered with the extra rye, makes for a very distinctive whiskey.

Woodford Reserve Masters Collection Rare Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 46.20%
7 Not all that well balanced.

Woodford Reserve Mater's Collection Rare Rye Selection New Cask
Rye - U.S.A. - 46.20%
