New Bulleit 95 Rye Whiskey

Just picked up the new Bulleit 95 Rye, 95% rye mash, 90 proof, probably made at LDI who does Templeton Rye as well (though these are definitely not the same thing w a different label). It's a real nice sipping whiskey for $25, but is surprisingly lacking in rye character.
I did a little comparison w Rittenhouse BIB and Russell's Reserve at http://www.thirstysouth.com/2011/03/0...
The Rittenhouse BIB is a ridiculously good deal, picked mine up for $15. But hard to find. Russell's Reserve is also a good choice - more on the herbal side of rye than the other two - all depends on your taste preferences.
