    I don't know if it was due to lcbo greed or supplier increase but the price here in Ontario has gone up recently by 14% for the dsp1 (same old labels, though)

    I've read that HH takes a small loss on this label, so I would expect the price to go up.

    That looks just like the old Continental Distilling label! Unfortunately, they removed the "Bottled by Continental Distilling Co." text.
    Michter's Distillery, Inc. DSP-PA-17 Schaefferstown, PA.
    Until Wednesday Feb. 14th, 1990, Michter's was "The whiskey that warmed the revolution."

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

    Bought my first DSP-1 and set-up a head-to-head with DSP-354 tonight. To my nose the DSP-1 blows the DSP-354 out of the water. The new stuff has a fantastic, complex nose (I'm getting some great peppermint thing, among other aromas); the DSP-354 is sort of generic and boring. On the palate, the DSP-1 has a darker, almost burnt character that I quite enjoy, although it still seems a bit thin in comparison to DSP-354.

    Previously, my favorite rye was the classic WTR101 with Ritt100 a long second. Now, with the DSP-1, the battle is much closer. We'll see how the next few pours pan out and, perhaps, I'll arrange a WTR101 vs Ritt DSP-1 head-to-head.

    BS; 7 years ago they were selling this for $11 a bottle. It's now at $23. There costs have nowhere near doubled in 7 years and they were not selling at a loss back then.

    Yes, one reads all sorts of things, but HH didn't get where they are by taking a loss on anything.

    I can take or leave the aesthetics of the new label, but it looks to me like they're emphasizing bottled in bond a little more. I like that.

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

    This is one of my favorite whiskeys when I can find it. The store I shop at doesn't put it on the shelf, you just have to be a regular and know who to ask. Last year it was $24. Today was the first time I've seen it since the fall and it was $29! I still bought one... But $29 is starting to become a stretch for this one.

    I just scored a 354 the other day. Still haven't tried the new stuff...
