Tuthilltown Rye

After researching, interviewing, and having it in mixed drinks I finally tried straight rye. This one is from Tuthilltown distillery, which is currently the only distillery making rye in New York State (they also make a vodka from apples, which I really want to try).

How was it? Bone dry....and light and a tad bit oaky. Very nice on a cold day. I ended up cutting it with some lemon juice because it was the end of the night and I needed something a bit easier to sip on. But I think I could get into the stuff. I can see it being great with some muddled mint, soda water and a touch of lemon juice, like a really dry Mint Julep.
