    You make a couple good points here that I will concede I agree with. I will give the whiskey a try and will buy a bottle if it blows me away - I am just not sure a NAS rye will do that though. I also agree that Whistlepig is overpriced at ~$75, but at 10 years old (soon to be twelve) it looks much less so when compared to a $70 rye we have to assume is only 4 years old - I will gladly pay $5 extra for 3 times the age! I will miss the older High West ryes, but Rendezvous is also phenomenal with it's 6/16 mix and can be had for less than $50 which also makes it a good value.

    Dave, I think the only way to really answer our questions and concerns is to get together later this Fall and try it in comparison to a smorgasbord of good rye I happen to have laying around.

    The information I've read said the 11 year old is going to be priced at $111. It would follow that the 12 year old will then be even more expensive. You may be paying $50 more for 3 times the age.

    That said, I'm not excited about the CEHT (or most of this hyped brand in general). I have a few bottles of WTR101 in the bunker that I bought for $20. I don't know that I believe the QPR is there for the CEHT.

    Thanks for that bit of info, I had no idea. If true, someone needs to let Whistlepig know 11 years is a full decade short of a rye worth 3 figures.

    I wondered about that too but they say no, made in Frankfort at BT.

    Any idea why the label (at least as recently approved by TTB) lists both DSP 12 and 113? (The other CEHT releases didn't.)

    Interesting. The label that got approved in August 2010 lists DSP-113 only, but as you say, the one from August 2012 lists both 12 and 113.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I would just assume there will be more releases as with the 4 we have had with bourbon and that at some point there will be a Barton distilled or at least mixed with Frankfort release. I'll believe them if they say this first release is from Frankfort only.

    Perhaps they are looking to use the bottling line at Barton as well.
