This thread is a good reminder to pick up some JD Old No. 7 in the gift isle at Wal-Mart. They always have a gift set with a couple of glasses for around twenty bucks. I usually get a set or two. The kids and I like the glasses. The wife, not so much.

Trader Joe's 10 Year Aged "Highland Scotch" is a good one. It has a pale color, like pear juice, and it is slightly smokey. Excellent pairing with Dunhill Nightcap

This reminds me that I need to get some new glasses for my whisky enjoyment.

My favorite whiskey glass is a mustard jar. Just a few more sandwiches and I'll have a set of four.

Picked up a bottle of Rebel Yell small batch rye last week. Finally got around to trying it.

Must say, I like it. Rye is becoming a favorite of mine.

I'll have to give that one a try. Rye is becoming a favorite of mine as well.

Gave this a go last night for the first time. If you like the taste of peat in your glass, you will like this. It is lighter than Laphroaig's 10 y.o.

Did you try the 80 or 101 proof? I've wanted to try this for a while now but always seem to grab another bottle over this one. If you're a rye fan try Canadian Club 100% Rye. Very affordable and quite smooth.

Look at you all highfalutin with the handles and whatnot. We use plain ole mason jars at my house and that's no joke.

Got a bottle of JD for fruit cake and other sundries. Gonna try that Jameson's. Nothing beats rye, mixed with lemon juice and local raw honey, for a cold or congestion, or just for sipping. Tried a shot of Buffalo trace prior to dinner this past Tuesday night, and it wasn't bad.

I haven't seen a proof difference on WT Rye.

But I only do WT101 or better on the bourbon side of the distillery.
