    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I've had some Overholt distilled in the late 60s and bottled in the early 70s but didn't keep tasting notes. I think we may have to look to the smaller producers like Leopold now to get a taste of what those old styles were like.

    I certainly second that. The Leopold Bros. Rye is very nice but pretty different. With a BIB reportedly in the works it is one that I am really looking forward to! Just hope it comes to Georgia. Had to work hard to get the distributor to bring the current whiskey here and I would guess the BIB is not going to be made in any greater volume than the current expression and maybe will be less available.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    Enjoyed a little of this last night. Got around to looking at my bottle and it's DSP-354, which means the ones I bunkered are also this.

    Thanks for the reminder- just dropped them a note asking about the BIB Project. The prospect of one of my favorite whiskies aging a little longer and getting bottled at a little higher proof makes me giddy.

    Re: Rittenhouse rye BIB

    DSP 1 is finally in Columbia. My personal opinion is that I'm glad I have about a case of 354 in the old bunker. Tomorrow I'm going to check the 3 other stores that carry Ritt BIB to see if there is any 354 left. 10 times out of 10 in blind tastings I could pick them out correctly. I'm just not sold. It has a hint if the sweet wild yeast funky taste that I'm not crazy about. Oh we'll, I'm good for a couple of months.... jMHO

    I can't wait to try it. I actually like a bit of the funk.

    We will be putting down the BIB Maryland Rye in greater quantities than the younger version. We're just a few weeks from dropping 5 new stills into the new distillery, and we should have them up and running in the spring. Our new distillery's entire whiskey program is based on BIB releases.

    The new dunnage style warehouse will allow us to age the Maryland Rye on earthen floors with no heating or cooling. I think you'll be pleased with the BIB version. We have a couple of barrels we have held back in our current plant, and they are coming along nicely.

    Truly appreciate the interest!
