    Re: What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    The 16y 4R did sound a little suspicious. I would believe SB members info. Bottom line it's good Rye.

    Picked up some Jefferson's 10 Year and Ritt BIB DSP-1 today. Looking forward to trying out both of these, especially a Ritt SBS tasting.

    Think you will like the Jeff 10. If so grab a couple more since they are switching to LDI.

    Yeah, that's what prompted me to finally pick it up. It was a good price, so I'll have to open it soon and go back for his friends if I like it.

    Thanks to the kindness of a couple of fellow SB'r, I was able to pick up a couple of these Rittenhouse 21 bottles:

    I saw these two and thought "those are exactly what I'd pick up at my store>'. Then I saw you were in VA and it made sense . I have to pick up a bottle of the Jeff 10 as well before it moves to LDI. I really enjoy Whistlepig and generally don't care for LDI ryes. Does anybody know when the switch is being made?

    Unfortunately Jefferson/Castle Brands have never been particularly forthcoming about where their stock of sourced whiskey comes from. The current rye is "North American 100% rye" for example. Unless it is likely to be a good selling point like the SW stock in JPS 17/18. Then they were more than happy to share the source. So it seems unlikely we are going to get much info from them about when this change over will happen. It may have already happened.

    A shame really because their products are generally pretty good. I have bought them in the past and will probably buy from them in the future despite my reservations but will be more likely to wait until I hear what others say about it first rather than take a chance and make a purchase without waiting as I do with others. I really wish they would be a bit more open about what they bottle.

    Congrats on adding to your older rye stock! I know that is an interest of yours.

    I wish a kindly SBer would point me to where I could buy a bottle or two (at a reasonable price!).

    High West Rendezvous.
    LCBO just reduced it to a somewhat reasonable $71.25 (from $95)

    Yes, this is what passes for a "sale" in Ontario.

    I stocked up.
