    Willett 5 Yr

    Just picked up a Willett 5 yr 110 proof Rye. Assume its LDI/MGP juice. Anyone sample this yet?

    Edit:misspelled Willett in the title but can't edit that. Mods,a little help?

    Does it say distilled in Indiana on the back?

    I picked up a couple bottles at KBD last summer of 5 or 6 year rye that said Kentucky on the back.

    Luther, you would think a guy with LDI/MGP as his avatar would not need to ask that question wouldn't you?

    I didn't think to look on the KY bottles I had for a while either. They've definitely a different profile than the MGP stuff though.

    Any idea where your juice came from? Maybe Brown-Forman?

    Could be, or maybe BT. It's definitely a softer rye with more corn in the mashbill than the MGP Willetts.

    Maybe B-F is selling off excess Ritt rye production now that HH is making their own until they figure out whether to come out with their own rye brand.

    This my suspicion as well on the "Kentucky" distilled versions.

    Dunno. Never come across a KY distilled Willett rye.
