    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    You build a profile, for which you have reference samples, then going forward you compare all barrel selections to those samples. This brand is NAS, so they don't have to limit themselves to barrels over a certain age, but if that's what you had for the original profile (e.g., whiskey at least six years old) then that's probably where you are going to start.

    It begins when they are in the process of selecting for the lesser brands. Barrels that show potential may be held out and marked for additional aging because they have the potential to become fodder for the better brand.

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    This topic piqued my curiosity, so though I’m not a high rye fan, I compared (ri)1 to JB Rye. I tried them separate then compared them side by side on my deck while watching my stupid old cat explore the forest, oblivious to hawk, owl, snake, and coyote.

    Perhaps I need to educate my palate. Color the same. (ri)1 had slightly better nose. (ri)1 was somewhat more rounded. Neither spoke much of age. Perhaps if (ri)1 were aged like Rittenhouse it would be a fine product. Between the two, (ri)1 and JB Rye, I’d choose OGD 114.

    I am glad Beam is exploring variety and offering a number of different products.

    Saw some on sale for $29.99. Well, kinda. The shelf space where it had been, was empty, so they must have sold it all. Joe

    PA is putting it on sale next month for $6 off. That makes it only $39.99 plus tax.

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    The OLCC price list for May (posted earlier today) has it marked down, from $51.95 to $39.95.

    I still haven't tried it.

    I'ved tried it and found it a little young. Probably a little expensive, but a nice bottle.

    Last weekend, I was surprissed to see it for $20 a bottle and autographed by someone to boot (couldn't read the signature) so I brought home my first bottle.

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    I had my first pour of this, this week it was poured down the sink. The nastiest tasting rye I have ever had and I like Rye whiskey.

    A local liquor store now has these marked down to $19.99. It looks like they are just trying to get rid of them and clear the shelf space.
