    Rittenhouse Rye BIB in KY

    So I have been looking for Rittenhouse Rye BIB for about the last 2 months. I have visited or called every store in my area (BG, KY). I kept getting promises that they would order it, but it never turned up.

    Today I got some troubling news. My regular store told me it was being discontinued. I panicked at first. Ritt BIB is my favorite rye and easily one of the best values in whiskey. So I called HH direct. They told me not to worry, the 80 proof and BIB are still safe, but the 23 year old got axed.

    So I called the KY distributor. They said they are sold out of the Ritt BIB and the earliest they could get it would be the 24th, but in reality, it could be much later before HH actually delivers it.

    I thought you all might be interested. I have feared for awhile that it could be cut or the price hiked up. Right now it looks like it is safe, but who knows about the price.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    The price has been steadily creeping up. I think I paid $17 for my last bottle.

    I always check the paper's on every line for what's in store for us each night. I try to keep a "timeline" on the line changes, label changes etc...etc..and know when things will start get busy for us.

    Rittenhouse is scheduled today It's always a steady "regular" in small quantities (750 rnd.). We will run the 80 first then the 100.

    EDIT: Oh and by the way...I see that you are from Kentucky...Add 6% sales tax to your next purchase starting April 1st

    Did I say Thank You Dan Kelly? and guess what?....I hear he's not running for re-election?

    As stated in other post I am not a rye guy, but Ritt BIB is the best way to go, that or Wild Turkey Rye 101.
    All the other ones are just over priced window dressing.

    Nope, I got mine in KY, IL has it, but Binny's and Sam's don't ship to MI.
    Get a WTR101, it's great.

    I have never seen this in Indiana, and I have been looking.

    One store told me that they would get it for me, but they got the 21 YO instead. I was not ready to fork over $140, especially when I was expecting $14.
