    Rye shortage?

    Can't seem to find baby saz or rittenhouse bib on the shelves here in MA. Help. The rittenhouse usually has been feast or famine in the last year or so. One of my local sales guys said some of the rittenhouse gets more allocation to the bars and resturants.

    Both have stopped shipping for some time because of supply shortages at the distilleries. Hopefully they will be back soon.

    Baby Saz and Ritt BIB probably will continue to be hard gets, but there's nothing wrong with Wild Turkey Rye, Russell's Reserve Rye, and the LDI 95%ers like Rendezvous and Bulleit. I also think there's nothing wrong with Jim Beam Rye and Old Overholt, but I know many disagree.

    In other words, you can't always get what you want but if you try, sometimes you get what you need.

    That's some of your best writing Chuck! Thought of putting it into some sort of song or something? (he said with a smile)

    Don't forget the Willett Rye's. Lots of love for the 4yr product from me.

    I've tried all of the LDI based ryes from all the various labels and pretty much like them all (some more than others of course like High West and Bulleit) but I have never seen the Willett versions down here. Where do I need to go to find them? Are they available in Knoxville (I sometimes get up there to McScrooge's)?

    There probably have been more posts here about the Willett rye than there are bottles available.

    Is it the same LDI stuff just at a higher proof?

    I don't know about the proof but it is the LDI 95% rye.
