    I really hope their msrp isn't indicative of the future of all similarly aged ryes. I say this knowing that is where we appear to be headed

    Probably not. Since by the time anybody has enough stocks of this to put out anything significant, it's going to be MORE than the current msrp!


    You have to keep in mind that these were really a fluke to happen, it wasn't a planned event, and it was luck that the barrels were as good as they were to bottle.

    I do not think the Rittenhouse 25 was a fluke - although I think you are right and the 21 was. I think the thought with the 25 was if they let the initial releases age longer, they could charge a lot more. The funny thing is though, the 21 was great, the 23 sucked (like drinking lumber), and the pour of 25 I had was simply OK.

    I have it on good authority (from a shop owner that tasted a few bottles with workers and received feedback from other enthusiasts) that there were some very good bottles/barrels of 25, but a lot of mediocre and not so good too. With the seemingly inconsistent nature of the 25, I have never felt like gambling almost $200. In my opinion, the only mistake that happened was not bottling a great whiskey before it went downhill.

    WTR101 for $26.99. Really wanted to bunker another bottle or two, but thought the price was a little salty.
