    Re: Bulleit...Rye?

    Was at the local store today and no Bulleit 95 yet but did get to chat with a rep from Diageo who was also suprised it hadn't showed up yet. He called and made it known my local store wants a case ASAP so hopefully it will be here soon!

    95 was first added to the April price list, so it can't hit the shelves until 4/1 at the earliest. As of a few days ago, there was none in the state warehouses yet. Due to how the store allocations are done it probably won't hit the shelves until the second week even if it were to hit the warehouses today.

    Still not on the OLCC list. If we ever do get it here, I expect it will be over $30. Oh well.

    I didn't expext it to be in Ohio just yet but checked while in the area anyhow. Sometimes things do show up early in stores. The store I frequent is in the top 5 in sales in all Ohio so there is no doubt it will be one of the first to get it when it is out!

Age seems to help, as the Templeton and High West versions of the LDI rye are much older than the Bulleit and the Bulleit is older than the Redemption.
    What do you think the ages of the Templeton, High West, and Bulleit ryes are? Were they all aged in Indiana?

    High West got whiskey from several distilleries and I believe their LDI whiskey was not one of the older ones. Templeton is at least 4 years old but I suspect they're doing some of the aging in Iowa. Bulleit is also at least 4 years old. Redemption is at least 2 years old. Except for Templeton I believe they were all fully aged in Indiana. I know the Bulleit and Redemption were. I don't know about High West.

    FWIW, in the current issue of The Bourbon Review, Tom Bulleit says that Bulleit Rye is "aged 5 - 7 years".

    I'm not sure I would buy that piece of information unless they are aging it somewhere else themselves.

    And they're not, at least according to Diageo. They told me it's aged 100% at LDI.

    With me, age claims unsupported by a label age statement tend to go in one ear and out the other unless I have some proof, like watching the barrels being dumped.

    Re: Bulleit...Rye?

    I agree Chuck, some years back, '76 I think, I was a guest at a Bourbon tasting at our club. Our host represented a small Kentucky distillery and put on a good show addressed to mostly Scotch and Martini drinkers. When the "how old is your whisky" question was asked we were assured that all their product was fully aged and there was no age statement because they just let it rest and bottled it when it reached the point of perfection so age was immaterial. We were further assured the whisky we were sampling was 13 years of age. Well, I guess we drank it all because I've never heard or read since of that brand being bottled at anywhere near that age.
