    Re: The time is nigh for rye

    I'm glad I live near Maryland- Pikesville Rye is only about $12.00 a bottle (80pf and 3yo and dang tasty!) and readily available. Rittenhouse, baby saz, Overholt, Beam rye, and WT rye are all in good supply down there as well. Was able to pick up a bottle of Van Winkle rye as well and saw a few more on the shelf as well.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Yup, I know a place in Dallas that still had THH on the shelf. I bet it's the ssme place O_O

    Re: The time is nigh for rye

    Here in Iowa, it seems everyone has taken a drink of the Templeton Kool-Aid and purchases no other rye. I see a steady and constant stock of Baby Saz and Ritt at my disposal that goes virtually untouched in the stores. Now, if Templeton would just start making a wheated bourbon for all of the Iowans to flock to, I might have an easier time getting the PVW.

    Van winkle rye on the shelf? Last time I saw a bottle on the shelf I woke up before I could buy them all.

    If Templeton started making anything I would be amazed. But they could get someone to make a wheated bourbon for them. They could say that its was Pretty Boy Floyd's favorite bourbon.

    I know of several. Just can't justify stockpiling more than the 4 I have!

    Re: The time is nigh for rye

    Spoke with reps from Heaven Hill about 2 year ago at a whiskey event. At the time they said they increased rye distillation from once or twice a year a few years back to once a month. Ritt BiB should be more common in a near future.

    I found two bottles on a shelf in Bumfuck, TX a few months back. God that was an epic day.

    Re: The time is nigh for rye

    One of my favorite things is going into grungy liquor stores and checking for WT 101 rye. The other day here in San Francisco my friend and I saw a dusty old liquor store and stopped in. Two steps into the place an old asian guy pops his head out of the back and says, "bourbon?" Funny, but no WT 101 rye there...

    i take it you didn't see any dusties there, correct?

    i've heard too many stories in grungy liquor stores about white guys coming in and buying up cases of old bourbon - you know you got there too late.
