Crossword Genius

Very excited about whisky (3)


I believe the answer is:


'whisky' is the definition.
(rye is a kind of whisky)

'very excited about' is the wordplay.
'about' says the answer is hidden in the clue.
'RYE' can be found hidden inside 'very excited'.

(Other definitions for rye that I've seen before include "Bitterly regret" , "Grass; whisky" , "Kind of serial or American whiskey" , "Type of whisky" , "Burns's body came through" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
