Made at Tom Moore, the only straight rye they sell, and it's only sold in northern Wisconsin, only in handles. It's not great (young), but not bad.

I wonder if by "premium taste through the years" they mean "but not right now."

I wish I could find it in Northern Wisconsin. It's a wasteland of blended canadian and brandy.

The person who contributed it to the BTOY door prizes is a SB member from Madison. Perhaps he'll reveal where he finds it.

Is this recent production. A few years ago, another SB'er and I scoured all the areas of N. Wisconsin we were told it was available via phone and there wasn't any to be found. In 2009, during a tour of Tom Moore, it wasn't even in their display case of currently produced brands!

And I've hunted near Madison last year to no avail. I have a friend who lives just north of there and I've hunted when I visit him every 4th of July. I don't think I saw any Fleischmann's rye.
I'll need to look a little more carefully next time.

City Wine Cellar in Staten Island lists it on-line:

375 (http://www.citywinecellar.com/store/product/4630/Fleischmanns-Preffered-Rye-Whiskey-375ml/) for $6.00 (same image as in first post)

1.75 (http://www.citywinecellar.com/store/product/4631/Fleischmanns-Preffered-Rye-Whiskey-1.75L/) for $18.00 (label slightly different)

Empire Wine (http://www.empirewine.com/liquor/fleischmanns-rye-175l-preferred-whiskey/) in Albany has 1.75 in store for $14.00 (same image)

They call it "Preffered" Rye - is this a different product? I realize
websites may not be accurate image-wise.

"Preferred" is the blended whiskey and is more widely distributed. It is my understanding that the Flieschmann's Rye is only available in handles.

Handed to me by a friend who happened to go to WI and pick it up for me.

Are the liters plastic too?

Glass. Embossed diamonds on the shoulder, similar to some Kentucky Tavern bottles I have.

I've seen both liters and handles advertised on various websites in the past!

My Dad goes out to the OshKosh airshow every august and a few years back I had him grab me a couple 1.75's at a store in that town. $15 a piece. At the time I talked to the WI distributor and was told it only came in plastic 1.75's. It is very distinctive and not bad. I like it. Like Mellow Corn, a must for your whiskey education. Reminds me strongly of bazooka bubble gum. I brought a bottle down to the gazebo the last time I was there, probably a year or 2 back. Still have some in the bunker :)

Hello Joe. Was it Trigs? 1.75 or Liters?

I've looked around (northern, central, western) WI and haven't found any. I'm really curious, even moreso the more I look and of course read posts here, to try the stuff.

When I worked in WI I drank it regularly. It had a juicy fruit gum taste to me. I only ever saw it in handles. Another rye I have only sen up there was stephen foster. It was really a good young rye. Same price range. I think heaven hill makes it. Lot of rye fans there I guess. It is also the only place I have seen 1.75 of jb rye. The store I shopped at really went through it also. It is a big cheap brandy and rum state too.

Wisconsin is a cheap state period. Buy this wonderful Rye now before it, sadly, all starts going into Baby Saz due to the new ownership of Tom Moore.

I will be driving through Madison over the holidays and would love to find some of this. If anyone knows of a spot where there's some on the shelves, please shoot me a PM.

Sounds like a prime candidate for a rebarreling experiment at the prices mentioned. I'm planning on doing some of that when I get home.

Excellent call, my friend! That is also why I asked if anyone had a heads up on some. I've never had it, but it sounds like if you can add some age and get the proof up around 100, could be spectacular.
