I've very much enjoyed bottlings of Old Overholt in the past, but not this one.

This tasted very generic to me, and is barely identifiable as a Rye. While not unpleasant, it's not what I hoped it would be - it didn't surprise me when I found out it was owned by Jim Beam.

Do any afficiandos have any comments about this particular bottling?

Thanks in advance,

Rocks

Current favorite rye for the classic stirred rye cocktails is the Wild Turkey 81-proof rye. The first duty of a rye for classic stirred drinks is to be fragrant, and this one fits the bill. Rittenhouse 100 is too sweet (but makes an awesome Old-Fashioned).
