    I picked up a bottle today. May give it a try while I grill some beef ribs. It's so hot I may not even have to light the grill.

    No joke! It's super hot here today too. The small shopping plaza at the edge of town has a sign with a thermometer- 89F when I went past at 1PM today. As much as I love the KC Rye, I think I'm going to stick with the 80 proofers today- Pikesville Supreme Rye and Banker's Club Bourbon.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Still haven't seen it make an appearance here in NJ, and so I settled on some Bulleit to tide me over until then.

    I found a bottle in a Virginia ABC store. If you're in VA, might want to drop by your local ABC and see if you can snag one.

    It has finally reached NJ distributors and is going out to stores. Just appeared on the shelves of Shopper's Vineyard and some Shop-Rite Liquor stores.

    It just hit Minnesota. I saw it for $38 which is more than the KCSB that was next to it... I think I'll shop around.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    $31.99. Only bought it due to SmokingJoe's glowing reviews. It's not bad on first taste, not great, but not bad. Who knows, it may grow on me. (Beam has set a pretty low bar for Rye.)

    My previous taste had been a trade show, so it's tough to really examine that way.

    Sure. Blame it on me...

    Did you get the similarity to WTR 101 that I did? I thought they were similar in their flavor profile. "Biting". BTW, your price was much better than mine. I would have been even more glowing had I saved the 7 bucks you did. I'm with you on the low bar thing. Every other Beam rye has just been poor IMO. Just, plain, B-O-R-I-N-G!!! Despite my question to you on the WTR 101 comparison earlier, I am sensing a really cool thing in general in the rye products...There is a nice "house style" differentiation developing between distilleries. BT has theirs, LDI has theirs, Barton (thank God for my customer in WI ) has theirs, Beam "maybe" now has theirs (if not usurping WT's). My hope is that the DSP KY 1 Ritt BIB will continue the trend, and move away from such a "bourbony" profile. A lot of different and enjoyable ryes being brought to market. That's a good thing.
