    Re: Rittenhouse Rye BIB in KY

    As I hauled it to the counter in two trips, I was greeted with "Did you get some for Christmas?" from the lady behind the register.

    Wha?

    She explained that they had special ordered a case for a woman who wanted to surprise her nephew at Christmas. Since the entire case of 12 wasn't purchased, the remainder was put on the shelf.

    Re: Rittenhouse Rye BIB in KY

    Funny they would say the 23-year-old was being "discontinued," as I always assumed it was a one-off. I know the 23 was from the same inventory as the 21, they just left it in wood a little longer. I wonder if they had more of that, in stainless perhaps, or if they had (and still have) more in the pipeline.

    I commend Heaven Hill and any other producer who goes out on a limb and tests the limits of this category, but I think they found those extra-aged Rittenhouses, especially the 23, were a bit too expensive. If they do have more of that whiskey, I wonder what they'll do with it?

    There has been some talk that the next release in the Parker's Heritage Collection will be a rye.

    As for the regular Rittenhouse, supplies are tight and the price will inevitably rise, but I doubt the product itself is in any jeopardy. Just the opposite, as it has been a real winner for them. The fact that stores have trouble keeping it in stock is a good thing.

    If it's been here in Michigan, it is no longer on the state list.

    This site is useful, especially if you are shopping at a place like my regular store (A&L Wine Castle in Ann Arbor), which claims that they sell at state minimum price, but usually have the prices marked up 10-20%. I went there last evening and all three purchases were priced over state minimum. This really ticks me off, but they have a complete selection - everything on the state list. But you have to go prepared.

    Yep Reggie you're right, there are lots of things on the shelf still, not on the list.

    If you want to try the Ritt 21 rye I have one open.

    Re: Rittenhouse Rye BIB in KY

    Been sipping on it the last two nights thanks to Callemox.

    It's a hellova value for an everyday pour I'd say. I still prefer Saz Jr, VWFRR and RRRye over this with OO being below.
