    To me, the proof difference makes them totally different pours. Don't let any dislike for the 80 prevent you from grabbing the BiB if you ever encounter it.

    Agreed. Even 3%/6 proof can make a WORLD of difference in taste between the same whiskey.... 10% Even more so. Scott's advice is spot-on, I would have said it myself but he beat me to it.

    Nope...you're right. At least for now. HH had been out of stock on Rittenhouse for a lot of 2009, and released limited amounts in February...all of it 100 proof.

    Gotta give them credit...they could have made more product/$$ by offering nothing but 80 proof.

    Thanks for the advice. I will pick up the 100 BIB version when spotted.

    There is a bunch here, and I had a really bad bottle I believe last time I snagged one. I'm not sure if I should pick up another or not... hmmmm.

    Not a 'whole lot'. We were given a statewide allocation of only 28cs. It came in late February, and is long gone from our warehouse.

    If you live in MN and want some, PM me. I can tell you where it went to.

    Re: BOTM 7/10: Rittenhouse Rye BIB

    I was at a bar last week and had two drinks:

    Van winkle rye, neat
    Rittenhouse BIB, neat

    While the edge goes to the VW, the Rittenhouse wasn't far off. It's great stuff. Unfrotunately the stores around me are all sold out.
