    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    I opened mine up and rather enjoyed it. Maybe it's not the finest rye around but it was good whiskey.

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    ri(1) is on sale here in Houston at Specs for $19.99 (after $5 off with Spec's keycard). I bought my first bottle. Rittenhouse Rye BIB is now up to $22.

    There were only 2 bottles on the shelf at Spec's downtown. Could they be clearing this out?

    On price front, also noticed Ridgemont Reserve is now priced under $20. Maybe I was just not paying attention, but I'm pretty sure this used be $25-$27.50 here in Houston.

    I would have made a mistake that stuff is awful.

    I got scared off when I heard it comes from the same recipe as JB Rye

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    My impression is that it is the Makers Mark of ryes. It's a bit dull, not a lot going on, very easy to drink. (pre apologies to the Makers drinkers & Dale).

    That said, on the rocks with a 5-6 dashes of bitters, makes a good drink. For $20 a pretty good buy.

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    Wade, that's a really good comparison to Maker's Mark! I found the ri(1) to be smooth and tasty but unobtrusive, and ultimately overpriced (a description that applies equally to the standard MM red wax.)

    Re: (ri)1 - The Right Price

    averages about $45 here, I found it for $30 and was happy with that, but for 20 bucks? They may not have known what they had their hands on. I woulda jumped all over that as well.

    It's about $40 here in Indiana too, Wadewood is dead on about making this a drink - sipping neat definitely reveals its youth.

    More than $30 here, I'll pay for the whisky but not the bottle.

    After reading this, I just unloaded the gun and put it back in the cabinet.

    On a similar note, it's funny that there was a thread recently on how Beam is raising prices, because I am seeing prices drop a bit. In the last week I've seen Baker's for 34, KC for 30 and KCSB for 39.
