    Re: DSP 354 vs DSP 1 Rittenhouse - How's the new stuff?

    Although I really love the 354, I definitely wouldn't mind more rye character in Ritt BIB. Personally, I taste more rye in OGD BIB that 354 Ritt BIB..

    Well I prefer the hh version. More rye flavor. Actually reminds me of what beam rye used to taste like. 354 tasted to much like bourbon.

    Re: DSP 354 vs DSP 1 Rittenhouse - How's the new stuff?

    Sounds 354 is like a "gateway rye" for those bourbon fans who are on the fence (which I think is a point in its favor!) I'll have to do the comparison again, as I never mistook it for bourbon. When folks say it is like bourbon, in what way? More vanilla/caramel notes than fruity/spice notes? Mouthfeel? Just curious. I prefer the DSP-1 between the two, but I like rye whiskey (and didn't "dislike" the 354 in any way/shape/form).

    I am still surprised by more and more that there truly is a discernible difference and that the DSP-1 is really coming out ahead as the preferred preference by most that have done a SBS.I really need to track down a few more and try them both SBS for myself as I am excited to hear all the positive press on the DSSP-1 so far.

    Just looked through several stores recently and they all still have the 354. Looks like it will be on the shelves for a while out here.

    From what I'm reading I think the DSP1 version may be an improvement.

    DSP-KY-1 has just shown up in South Jersey. Neat, I find it a bit spicier and more rye-like than the 354, and at the same time a touch sweeter. Overall I like the balance. I think, though the difference is subtle, the 1 moves the profile a bit from the bourbony 354 to the exact place a young rye should be, without going overboard into LDI territory.

    Made a "perfect" Manhattan with it (Dolin Blanc, Rouge and Angostura) and it was lovely as well. I fell no need to stock up on 354, as I find the 1 a small but real improvement (to my palate)
