I must admit, of all the ryes in the world that I love, Rendezvous is something very special. Apart from VWFRR, (which I have been able to find a grand total of ONCE in my entire 4+ year love affair with rye,) and Saz 18 (which I've worked hard to find more of,) Rendezvous really does have the perfect flavor profile for my palate...but I know that 16 year old Barton rye can't last forever......
SO, does anyone know the latest on this product? I had heard they would be putting it on allocation, which is fine, but I had also heard that it might get a reworking soon to keep the brand/label afloat for a bit longer...does anyone have any good info on this?
I ask because unlike VWFRR, which is like gold out here in CA, I can still find Rendezvous if I hunt hard enough...and I'll be damned if I don't get at least 4 bottles of it to stash when the product is at it's end of lifespan.
Anybody got the inside track?
