    I am just impressed that they aged it AND matured it. So many big companies skimp on the second part.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    According to LDI's Web site their only regular rye is 95% rye and 5% malted barley, so I think it's safe to assume that's where they are getting their juice.

    The question, then, is if have arranged to do custom aging with LDI (which I think they are perfectly happy to do), or if they are just selecting barrels and having it bottled. Does it make sense to have it transfered to used cooperage for further aging?

    Maybe this is why Templeton is having problems keeping up with demand. I assume Diageo is buying in much higher volume.

    I need to find out in LDI does tours. I left Ghent, Kentucky, around one this afternoon. I could have run up there.

    So was it the bourbon spewed out the nose onto sensitive electronics, or, as your smiley suggests, the pounding of your fists in hysteria?

    The label in the COLA entry for the product says Lawrenceburg, IN so this has been established.

    Re: Bulleit...Rye?

    Ah, finally found the Bulleit Rye thread. Picked a bottle up last week, interesting stuff. It doesn't strike me as that similar to the Templeton rye, but who knows. This makes for a nice sipper, but I'm really surprised at the lack of typical rye character given the 95% rye mash on this. Very curious to hear others' opinion.

    More thoughts in a side by side comparison w Rittenhouse BIB and Russell's Reserve 6yo - http://www.thirstysouth.com/2011/03/01/three-fine-ryes/ - and Bourbonblog posted their tasting note too - http://www.bourbonblog.com/blog/2011...hiskey-review/
