    I had some of the 1990s version with my dad last weekend for an early Father's Day celebration. It was very very good. There was an aftertaste of clove that really made it for me.

    Fingers crossed based on reviews and tasting notes i've read. Hope to crack this weekend after i've made some shelf space.

    Picked up several more bottles of Ritt BIB DSP 354. Don't know exactly when HH plans on making the "switch", but when it's gone it's gone.

    Have several bottles myself but I kinda wish the DSP1 would arrive already so we can make the comparison and decide if it is close enough to live with.

    Bought my first Michter's 10 year 1B rye, barrel # 8E-2. Left a couple behind, I've passed on this many times before, but after reading that it was one of Gary Gillman's favorite ryes and that it is often older than the 10 year age statement I had to bite the bullet and give it a try.

    I caved in.

    AE rye x2.

    I've been debating this one, and gave in.

    I grabbed a Jefferson's 10 yo 100% Rye today. For me, it compares favorably with the WT101 Rye.

    3x HW16 375mL
    1x Michter's 25 rye

    Came for the Michter's, but was so excited to find more of the HW16 that I cracked one bottle in the store to share.
