    I have yet to see any DSP-1's yet in my area,but I can't wait to do a SBS on them.I was weary in advance and have plenty of 354's already tucked away.....call me a pessimist I guess.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    same here. I bought the last bottle on the shelf from my local guy about a month ago, and I'm doing my best to nurse slowly. On the upside he got a case of baby Saz. On the downside it's priced at $29. Ritt has been $20 for as long as he's carried it.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    The internet allows us to compare prices everywhere but also allows merchants to set prices based on trends.

    I swear, some people on this board think liquor retailers have the cunning of a James Bond villain.

    Rittenhouse rye BIB

    In my case the retailer has had the same inventory and prices for at least a year. In this case I guess the market price is catching up to their mark ups.
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I've seen Ritt BIB for $18.99 and as much as $22.99 (which is a big swing in terms of percentage, but I've come to learn that some retailers have fairly consistent better prices on some brands than others). At the end of the day - if someone had put a taste in front of me and asked "Would you buy that for $25 a bottle?" - I think I would have answered in the affirmative.

    Agreed completely, its by far my favorite rye, the fact that its such a bargain is just bonus.
