    Re: Sazerac Rye mashbill

    Agree with you about the Saz Jr limitedness. Maybe see it once a year or so where I am, and geography also probably has something to do with it also.

    Generally if i see it, I'll grab the bottle. Pleasantly surprised to find it in the boonies the other night. Now if only the misses will left me stop at a couple of more places on the way home. Had good luck this weekend........

    The Sazerac Jr. is still available around here but from what I'm hearing, perhaps I should pick up a few bottles now....

    Here in MI, the supply (of Sazerac Rye with no age statement) is pretty much available only around Sept.-Nov. and Feb.-March. The retail stores call their favorite customers to let them know that when have a few bottles available. When I wrote to Sazerac, they replied that they "bottle Sazerac Rye only twice a year – typically around January and August" and "the popularity of Sazerac Rye has exploded the past few years and it is a challenge to ramp up production to meet demand since there is aging involved……we just can’t speed up the barrel aging process!".

    Re: Sazerac Rye mashbill

    In my region (Dallas/Ft Worth) and down through Houston, I've been told that Baby Saz is now officially an "allocated product" - meaning there are more orders than they can fill, and as such they parse it out.

    Not nearly as rare as BTAC or Pappy stuff, but typically if you see it - and you enjoy it - you should buy it, because you could go several months without seeing it again (until/if production matches demand).

    Rittenhouse BIB has been in the same boat for about 18+ months, too. Just such a small amount of Rye produced relative to Bourbon, that even a moderate bump in interest screws up the availability.

    Ritt BIB & Saz are only available about 1/2 of the year. Some states don't even get Ritt BIB (Michigan...)

    WTR 101 & JB Rye seem to always be available, but I've heard that WTR101 is hit or miss in some places... never had an issue myself (sometimes a store is out, but the one next door will usually have it).

    I've been noticing occasional shortages on WTR101. I can live without Ritt and Saz, but I can't lose my supply of Turkey Rye! Yeah, Josh, I said it!!

    WTR101 is a MUST have - no bunker is stocked without some! It's a great Rye... I just don't understand how some people seem to dislike it.

    I feel naked without it!

    I cannot and will not recant anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. May God help me. Amen.
