    Re: Jefferson's Presidential Rye Select 21

    Back to the original topic- just noticed that the Jefferson's poster in another thread showed the coming 21 yo rye as being from American stock. This is contrary to the earlier rumors that had it as "North American", which many (including me) took to mean as Canadian.

    I truly wonder whose barrels they got of that age? Maybe some old LDI? Hard to believe Rittenhouse would have let some away unless it was not up to par.

    time will soon tell.

    Could be North American is more specific of "American"

    Ahh, I didn't think that way! Maybe even some fine 21yo Mexican rye

    MGPI did find lots of old barrels they sold to their best customers after purchasing LDI and doing a full hand count inventory.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Unfortunately with Jefferson it hasn't been a particularly easy product to nail down a source with unless it is a source they really want you to know about like the S-W JPS 17/18 bourbon. So I am not yet convinced time will tell.

    Passed on a bunch of 100%ers today, but may rethink that.

    MGPI did have many barrels of OLD Rye (and bourbons) they let go of when they acquired LDI. I have personally seen and tasted 2 of them, and they were distilled in 1978. Yes, thats not a typo, they are 35 years old. Oaked as hell, but putting 35 years one the label would probably command an insane price.

    Always a possibility that JPS rye is some of this older LDI juice. I personally think its going to be a blend of the LDI barrels and some Canadian barrels.
