I wouldn't use Rittenhouse as a sipper, personally, no.

It's good for cocktails, though, IMO. Manhattans, Sazeracs, Diamondbacks, etc.

So i mentioned that but the person who recommended didn't say anything about a non-sipper. It's fine either way. Glad I tried it. For the same price or few dollars more, there are many rye whiskeys out there that are good for sipping neat.

It's hard to find a bottle under $40 that I would consider a sipper these days. There are a few exceptions but even within my whiskey groups people will sing the praises of a cheap whiskey and I will end up greatly disappointed. It is great compared to the $10 rubbing alcohol that is the only other option at that price point, not actually good on it's own.

I also am not a fan of Saz straight as it is too harsh, I just like Black label less.

Well I decided to replace an almost empty Balvenie 21 Portwood and while I was there try a new scotch. Came home with 2 bottles of hooch. Tried the Fohdry and was very happy.

Haven't popped the vodka yet. Wife wanted it because of the bottle. But eventually when lemons are back in season and homemade lemonade is plentiful we shall have to mix some with it.

It is one of the few Vodkas I can drink straight, although don't get much enjoyment from that as Vodka strives to be pure instead of have character.

I toured the Ocean distillery in Hawaii when I was there and it's a neat little shop with a cool story (and really cool water source)

Bought a few whisky coolers today to try out, mainly because I am curious to try them and don't want to invest in entire bottles until I've tried them first. Macallan Double Cask I'm sure I will like. Johnnie Walker Black I have been wanting to try so did that first. It's an okay whisky. It has a bitter aftertaste that I don't like. It's a bit sweet and sherry like which is fine by me as I like that. A bit thin but pretty smooth. Overall, if it's there I'll drink it but wouldn't buy it again.
