    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    Thanks Scott, I though of that after I posted the thread.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    Both BF and HH went to great pains to assure me that Ritt was made at BF making HH's recipe and when HH stopped buying it, BF stopped making it. That doesn't mean BF hasn't continued to make rye whiskey, it's just not the same as the rye whiskey they made for HH.

    I have no doubt that when Ritt BIB switches over to DSP-1 juice, there will still be many barrels of DSP-354 rye in HH's warehouses. Also, although the BIB has to be one or the other, the 80 proof and HH's other ryes can be some of each.

    Put me down as someone who hopes the new HH distilled whiskey is different, and has more rye punch to it. The Ritt BIB just seems too "bourbony" for my tastes.

    So now that you are bourbony of the year the whole world has to revolve around you!!! I will alert the powers that be of your disapproval and I'm sure they will pull the switch to defcon 4 and the lights and sirens will be blaring.
    Having said that, I think (speaking for the rest of us) that the next iteration should be less bourbony, perhaps with more rye punch to it. The exact opposite.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I got some laughs a week or so ago when I referred to Lexington's Town Branch Bourbon as "not very bourbony," but I think it's a perfectly good descriptor. At least Joe knows what I meant.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    My favorite store is down to three bottles of Ritt BIB as of a couple days ago. It'll be interesting to see what comes in to replace it.


    Has anyone seen a COLA for the new Ritt BIB?

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I guess I should go out and put a few away for comparative reasons since the label has now been approved.I will really be curious to see how they stack up against one another.

    Is the label basically the same, but just a difference in the text? Or are they finally going to give Rittenhouse a decent label? I hate the mid-90's computer generated ugly label it has.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
