The 9-Bottle Bar, our 2014 cocktail column, offered up a small, budget-friendly selection of bottles that, together, can build a pretty swanky set of cocktails. The whisky of choice in our lineup? Rye. Scotch is great for sipping on its own; bourbon can be a little sweet; rye is the spicy, all-American choice for mixed drinks.
