    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I bought the last bottle of DSP 354 Ritt BIB from my favorite store a week or so ago, and now three more bottles have appeared on the shelf, still DSP 354.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    Am I correct that no one has seen a DSP-1 on the shelves?

    I don't know any better since I just tried it for the first time. It was DSP-354. I love it!

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I triumphantly return home this evening with my first DSP-1. I'm surprised I beat Chuck to it. Found not at Binny's (checked about a week ago and the front bottle was 354) but at a smallish chain called Malloy's.

    A rough comparison indicates they're the same color. The bottles are the same and the front labels are identical EXCEPT the DSP-1 labels are now rounded at the edges instead of squared. The back labels share this dissimilarity. DSP-1 has a slightly smaller font but otherwise matches DSP-354 word-for-word until we get to the distiller.
    DSP-1 reads:
    "Distilled by Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc.
    D.S.P. KY 1
    Bottled by Continental Distilling Co.,
    D.S.P. KY 31 Bardstown, KY"
    The old bottle reads:
    "Distilled by D.S.P. KY 354 and
    bottled by Continental Distilling Co.,
    Bardstown, KY"

    I'm going to kill the last couple pours from my open DSP-354 before popping this new 1 as well as an old 354 so I can compare both fresh. In the meantime, get hunting.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    If it eases your anxiety, my taster isn't so talented. Work also compels me this weekend so the earliest tasting notes might appear would be Tuesday, and I'd still have to finish this currently open bottle of 354 before opening a new one. However, if these other Chicago slackers would come out here and help me, things might happen a little faster...
