    Thanks for the interesting link Pike, actually I was limiting my comments to the distilling portion only.

    OK, not sure of the plans for that, will have to ask around.

    if they move buildings will there be a different DSP code necessarily?

    That came from an interview with their head distiller (Mr. Thomas?) who commented about moving the distilling equipment into a vacant building next door while at the same time expanding production. Taking in an adjacent building should not require a new DSP.

    If you like older ryes you can't go wrong with either but I prefer the Hirsch 22.

    I've never had a Ritt 21 but you wouldn't be disappointed in a Hirsch 22. The nose specifically is heavenly. The answer is to buy both, because in the not too distant future you won't be able to buy either.

    Didn't I read a thread that suggested the ultra-aged Ritts were not a flash-in-the-pan, but rather a continuing product offering?

    Sku's recent post would seem to indicate otherwise:

    As long as it's profitable the majors will provide the product. More Rye is being produced now than ever before and the majors are leading the movement.
