    When did KBD enter this new period of disclosure?

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    It's always the distiller that doesn't the source to be revealed.
    In this case it sounds like they want some pub.
    I wonder if they told Drew to disclose the info.

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    WOW! Was in Hi Time yesterday and was shocked to see this made it out to the west coast. They got a few bottles of the 115.2 proof version so I picked one up. Very unique! Loads of grassy, mint, floral goodness. Very happy to have stumbled upon this.

    And yes, I was also shocked to see the normally secretive KBD disclosing the source. Maybe as a next step they can tell us if they are chill filtering?!? A guy can dream right?

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    All the Willetts I have say Distilled and Bottled in Kentucky. So Willett has always disclosed what state the whiskey was distilled in.....

    This is probably the only sourced whiskey they have gotten from outside of KY.

    can someone post a pic of the front label?
    Cheers,

    The Willett's that I have state non-chill filtered on them, and furthermore you can swirl the bottle and see "dust" in the bottom of several that I have.

    Thanks Reid....

    Looks like to me they did not disclose any more than they always have. We are just lucky that there is only 1 reasonable choice for an Indiana distilled product. If there were 7 distilleries in Indiana, we would be in the dark just as much as when they say distilled in KY....

    I don't know. How in the dark are you really?

    I guess buying at retail is one thing. But when you buy a private selection (like many if not most are) do you really not know or are you just asked as a gentleman to not crow about it (heh, heh) on the internet? On the other hand if you buy say, Wild Turkey for instance, are you really sure you know where all of its juice came from?
