    Re: Rye Prices

    That's probably about as good as you're going to see. Not sure what Binny's gets for it as they don't have it on their web site. It wasn't that long ago that Rittenhouse BIB was $12 a bottle, but it still looks like a bargain at $22.99 when Wild Turkey 81 proof rye is $24.99, Bulleit Rye is $34.99, and Knob Creek Rye is $36.99. Meanwhile, it's pretty hard to beat Old Overholt at $14.99. Beam is apparently trying to get some separation between its two popular-price ryes, pricing Jim Beam Rye at $19.99. Ri1 is still on Binny's list, at $39.99.

    We're so lucky, we can buy Beam rye at four different price points, from $14.99 to $39.99.

    I picked up a Baby Saz at my local haunt for $25, on sale. Last one on the shelf, although I see it elsewhere in stock for closer to $30. Fortunately the local guys keep Rittenhouse in stock and priced nicely. Probably a good thing it's not $12 anymore, or I'd go through it even faster than I already do.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I trust at least one made its way home with you?

    That's an amazing price, especially if found here in MI. Way to go.

    Good one, Will. A nice find, indeed! My little hole-in-the-wall store just sold their last bottle, so somebody found my little stash. Still, I'm happy to have the two bottles I've got and will continue to keep an eye out for the WT101.

    So true. I do wish the Bulleit and Knob were priced closer to $30 (or slightly less) which would make them more appealing to me. At $35+ my eye starts wandering elsewhere and often lands on Rittenhouse.

    I'll be very interested to see what fans of the LDI ryes think of George Dickel Rye when it hits the market.

    I'm not, a fan, and that's why I'm looking forward to it. Intrigued by that citrus note that has been documented .
