"One of the great classic cocktails, this one's made the old fashioned way -- with rye whiskey."

I like this cocktail made with dry vermouth and an olive.
THE best cocktail in my opinion. Make your own Brandied Cherries instead of the nasty neon red store bought cherries.
Finest, easiest, most interesting cocktail around - rye whisky gives it a distinctive edge, and don't forget those bitters!
Rye Manhattan is mine and my husband's fav drink....25 years now. We don't use the bitters though. C-Bisket...gonna make your grandmas cherry dessert soon!
Very nice. We prefer a little less vermouth, but that's easy to adjust.
I'm new to the world of Manhattans, so take my comments in that context. That being said, I have two things to say... "Yum!" and "Be careful..." :-)
I see this as a terrific starting point. I made a couple (for my wife and I) as c-biskit described, and we were both VERY happy with the result! A very delicious drink that is a wee bit too drinkable, if you know what I mean... :-)
I made #2 with dry vermouth - it wasn't to my personal taste, but my wife liked it. I'll try #3 (when it is safe to do so...) as a "perfect" Manhattan (half sweet, half dry vermouth). After that, perhaps I'll try different types of bitters...
Let the adventure begin! :-)
