    Was in DC over the weekend and managed to snag 2 bottles in a Georgetown store. Was the only Ritt BiB I found anywhere. Have to slip slowly.

    This whiskey is the "best value for money" american whiskey you can buy in Norway! I love it! It was also the whiskey that introduced me to rye, and that I'm very thankfull for!

    I love Ritt BIB I went to the only liquor I know to get in all the way in Omaha NE and they said they can't get it right now or in the foreseeable future.

    Ummmmm . . . I guess I fall in the middle, too . . . since there aren't many rye options (especially up here) I always like to have some Ritt BIB stashed when I can find it, but I like both the WT Rye & Baby Saz Rye better, although I don't think of the Saz as especially representative of "rye profile." I think the Ritt is serviceable whiskey, a good value pour, great for mixing and tasty neat, but I don't understand the lavish praise it gets. Wild Turkey 101 is easily my favorite rye.

    This may be a bit of a highjack it still applies to the BOTM. I've never bought a rye and I see a lot of options in the under $20 range, Old Overholt, Beam, Wild Turkey, Ritt. I'm going Rye shopping Friday. Knowing I'm new to Rye, would you say this BOTM is the way to go or should I start elsewhere

    Rittenhouse is a great place to start.

    It's closer to bourbons than some, notably Sazerac Junior, a bit more refined than WT and not as quirky as the Beam yeast signature of the Beam Rye.

    I agree that Rittenhouse is a great place to start (if you can find it). I like the WT Rye and Sazerac too. The three are quite different. The Rittenhouse is similar to some higher rye bourbons. The WT is more spicey. Saz is more sweet and full bodied. Old Overholt is ok if you consider it is a young 80 proof whiskey that sell for ~$12. Jim Beam Rye had sort of an odd well water or wet cardboard taste both times I bought bottles. Hey, I gave it a second chance.
