    Re: Michter's Original Sour Mash Whiskey

    *If* it's actually a vatting of Old Forester and Rittenhouse, it would be kind of fun considering that up until recently both were produced at the same distillery. However, I have my doubts. Does Brown-Forman sell bulk whiskey to rectifiers? We all know HH sells bulk whiskey, but the question there is whether there is enough Ritt (or any other rye whiskey for that matter) to go around that would support such a thing. Remember, even with some brands running low or even out, most distillers still only make rye one or two days out of the year.

    Re: Michter's Original Sour Mash Whiskey

    Well, clearly it is only a rumor at present, but the logic of it is there (to me) if that is what was done. I look forward to trying this product, hopefully on my upcoming trip to Kentucky in April I can find it. The other thing too is, can we exclude that, at certain times anyway, the original Michter's Original Sour Mash Whiskey was put together in a similar fashion, with bourbon and rye produced on site at the distillery in PA or in some cases brought in from Continental in Philadelphia or elsewhere?

    I'll just say I find this theory extremely unlikely. The fallacy comes in thinking that Fake Michter's cares if what they're selling has any factual relationship to what they're saying about it.

    I will form my own judgment based on palate, when I finally taste the new one. Indeed I hope through the kindness of a previous BOTY to have a bottle of the original at the April Gazebo and I will bring the new one if it is available anywhere in the Louisville area.
