The Reanimator is an interesting drink, with only two ingredients, aside from the garnish, which is for taste, more than color or prettiness. There was no suggestion as to the rye to use, so I chose WhistlePig (10 years) because it is a soft and mellow rye, with a distinctive taste. Another reason I chose WhistlePig is that I didn't want a rye, such as Rittenhouse, that would overwhelm the Amaro Nonino and spoil the drink. For those who don't like WhistlePig rye or can't afford it, I believe a brand of rye in the 80-90 proof range, such as Wild Turkey rye or Sazerac, will work well. The Reanimator is a superb evening drink, which will be quickly appreciated by rye drink lovers.
