Recently saw a blurb about new George Dickel Rye in Cheers Magazine.  Looks to be 95% rye, which sounds good to me.
 
I'll be on the look out for it, haven't seen it in two stores so far.  i'm sure they can special order it.
 
Here's an article from Cocktail Enthusiast:

For a change of pace you can try a rye beer. August Schell's Brewing Co. in New Ulm, Minnesota makes such a beer. I tried it and liked it. It is a regional brand from the second oldest brewery in the United States.
 
Schell's Emerald Rye

I have not found one liquor store in the greater Baltimore / D.C. area that has the George Dickel Rye.  I called a distributor and they even said it is on backorder.
 
Suprisingly, a liquor store in Minnesotta, Merwin's (link below) would ship it to Maryland but now I don't see it on the site.
 
One of these days I'll find it.

I tried Jim Beam's Rye. It was good, I guess. I drink bourbon regularly, I think the Beam is a good attempt at making Rye accessible to a wide audience. A fantastic Rye is from a distiller in NY State, believe it or not, called Tuthilltown, in the central Husdon Valley area near Poughkeepsie.

Sundancer, you paint the most beautiful pictures - must be nice to have such a great view from your deck! I just checked my bottle of Jim Beam Rye and decided a drink would be appropriate. I'll skip the cigar though! I seem to remember that the Manhattans I loved when going out to dinner in the 60's were made with rye. Don't taste the same any more. Think I'll try to make one with my rye when I get some fresh bitters. Does anyone know how long bitters keep in the fridge? Mine must be at least 15 years old.

 
IMHO 15 years may be a tad too long.  I would recommend a fresh bottle.  But I do love a good Manhattan!

Rye is really the best way to enjoy a Manhatten, in my opinion

Agreed, as well as some other related cocktails.  I particularly enjoy the Little Italy (Rye, Cynar, Sweet Vermouth) and the Red Hook (Rye, Luxardo Maraschino, Punt e Mes).

In my experience bitters keep forever in our pantry - no need for refrigeration. BTW: Fee Brothers in Rochester , NY s a great source of off-beat flavors of bitters.
 
Cheers, John

I was finally able to score a bottle of the George Dickel Rye.  It came to $18.52 including Maryland's increased  9% sales tax.
 
I tasted it along with Pikesville Rye.  I really did not notice much difference. 
 
I don't know if Pikesville is 95% (or a great percentage) rye, but to me, with my taste test of rye neat, it was pretty much identical to Dickel Rye, and $5 or so cheaper.
 
I'll have to do a comparison with Manhattans, though if neat was similar to me, I don't think cocktails will be different.
 
One positive the Dickel had over Pikesville is that Dickel has a cork stopper and Pikesville is a screw-off cap.

Glad that others are experimenting with Pikesville.. It really is a bargain

Tell you in a few days. I'm going to a St. Paddy's Day event at a local Irish gastropub called the Dublin 4. One of the things they are having is four flights of whiskey. The rye flight is called "You're All Rye-ot". I can hardly wait!

Bought a bottle of the Knob Creek rye.  Had a lighter taste than the Dickel rye.
 
The bottle had a screw-off cap.  I called Beam and they saidthe switched to screw-off caps. 
 
Kind of disappointing to me, though I've broken a few corks from the plastic in my time.

I picked up a bottle of Russel's Reserve Rye a couple of months ago, and I meant to hop on here and mention it after I bought it. Obviously, I forgot.
 
Anyway, it's really good. It has a good bit of bite, for those who like a strong, bitter rye. And it's not horribly expensive, either: about $30.00 for a 750mL. 
 
Also, this isn't a rye, but I was recently gifted with a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon, and it is fantastic. If you ever have the chance to pick up a bottle, I highly recommend it.

I like Alberta Premium.  It's owned by the same company that makes the Jim Beam rye, but it's much stronger (taste-wise--the alcohol content is still the same).

I have been enjoying Bulliet Rye. They have always made a good bourbon, and the limited quantity rye they are making now is pretty awesome.

I've been in an Old Fashioned mood lately so the last two bottles have been Old Overholt.  It may be cheap but i think it does just fine in a cocktail.

I find that any cocktail with a bourbon base is better with rye, with the exception of juleps

Today I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to a private tasting of Jack Daniel's Unaged Tennessee Rye. All I can say is, OMG! As was explained to me, it's the next best thing to moonshine. The nose was nice with hints of vanilla. Went down smooth, then hot, and faded to a pleasing warmth.

To quote Humphrey Bogart, himself no stranger to rye whiskey "The, uh, stuff that dreams are made of".

I posted about this rye before, but for others that may have missed it, take a look. Very interesting history and excellent rye. They used to have a distiller's convention at the hotel where I worked and these guys always gave me a small batch bottle.

Go back to Msg. 57 in this thread for an emptied bottle of Templeton Rye.
 
It is a tough rye to find. Not many liquor stores carry it, but my local one does.

Whoops...sorry I missed that. I've noticed that it's becoming a lot more available. I had some in Telluride, CO a couple of weeks ago.

I used to travel to Canada years ago and most Canadians would refer to that as a rye and ginger.
hmmm this didn't work like I had hoped. a CC and Ginger ale would be refered to as a rye and ginger.  I really like those to this day......

I agree.  I never could understand why people pay for Bombay Sapphire, then drown it in tonic.

Old Overholt is my choice for mixing, although Pikesville does well too

Stopped in the local ABC package store (VA) the other day and they had a tasting of Knob Creek whiskeys. I tried the rye and really liked it, very smooth. There seems to be quite a variety of new rye whiskeys coming out. Just about every major distilery makes one now and a lot small "boutique" distillers have them.

I've got about one more two finger shot of Templeton Rye left before I have to go out and restock. I thought about trying the Knob Creek Rye the next time if I don't go back to a bottle of bourbon. One bottle and sip at a time.
