    If you enjoyed Ritt (DSP KY 354) you might want to grab a few extra bottles to have
    on hand before the DSP-1 hits the shelves. Not to say the DSP-1 will be bad but if
    something you like is soon to be replaced by an "unknown", why take a chance. At
    the very least you have some DSP 354 that you know you like and if DSP-1 is a
    winner, that's an added bonus (plus you can do blind side by side tastings to see
    which you really prefer.)

    Re: What Should I Try Next?

    Now that I know what to look for, there really are an incredible number of ryes on the market right now. Personally, I like rye as an alternative to bourbon, but I only have a few around. I have an unopened 110pf 4yr Willett, Rittenhouse (with a few DSP 354 bunkered), a few Baby Sazerac, and one of the holy grails, VWFRR.

    The Rittenhouse is a terrific whiskey, but I find the Sazerac easier drinking. Frankly, the Baby Saz is dangerously easy to drink, and just great imho. Jefferson's, Russell's Reserve, Smooth Ambler and Knob Creek ryes are a few others to consider. Enjoy the journey.

    I might try Jefferson's 10 yr Rye. I'm also a fan of the younger Willett ryes myself, and really liked the Jeffersons.

    Jefferson would be a change of pace as it's rye whisky is sourced from Canada and made from a different mashbill than MGPI.

    Re: What Should I Try Next?

    I would agree with the Jeffersons and if you can find it go for the UCF'd bottling some of those still floating around.I did a side by side not long ago really adds to the total package IMHO,the finish the feel all of it.I figured you wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference with a 100% rye of this sort and really you can.

    The Jeff is Canadian enzymatic distillate. (100% rye) I tend to stear away from things aged in Canada aswell as enzymatic distillate, you need the malted barley even at the meager 5% to be the chaperones to the yeasty dance.

    Willets LDI/ MGPI 95 /5 tastes awesome because its 110 proof, and the flora and fauna of aging whiskey at willet makes beverages taste better IMHO.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Flora and Fauna sounds like elves and wood sprites.

    Unchillfiltered,they will have a small black label on the bottle denoting this.
