    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.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

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

    Which is the better Willett option - MGP or BF?

    Dunno. Never come across a KY distilled Willett rye.

    When this appeared on the shelves, the first ones I saw were 2 years old and 114 proof. Since then, I've seen 3, 4, and 5 years old, all distilled in Indiana. One might tend to think; the older the better, but no. I actually liked the 2 year old the best. It had this fruitiness and thick viscosity that were much diminished in the others.

    If they do I'll buy it but only under a B-F label, no point in paying twice.

    I'm happy to pay extra to have it bottled at barrel proof.
