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

    354's disappeared pretty quickly around here and I've already gone through several of the 1's. Took me about 1/2 a 750 to recalibrate. Happy to report that all is well (as you can tell in the rye forums)...

    What I meant to say is the new label on the DSP1 is very different. Some find a bit of difference from 354 to 1 (as do I if only a little bit) but I find them both to be good.

    The new label is sort of retro back to an older label from the 80s or so.

    Agreed. Since I use it primarily in Manhattans, any difference (which I sometimes think I can detect but don't know for sure) is negligible or is just my imagination.

    As tanstaafl2 pointed out above, (nod to Smithford as well via email) the old labels (with DSP-1 printed on the back) were used during the transition period. Therefore, it is possible/likely* the bottles with the old labels currently on the shelf in some Ontario stores are in fact DSP-1.

    *its difficult to tell because the importer slapped a sticker (iirc with their contact info) right on top of where the dsp number is printed

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

    portwood's comment jogged my memory on another Ritt thingee. Prior to the label change, Ritt was not rare around here (Washington DC) but was not always findable without hitting several retail stores. Now, "everybody" seems to keep at least a couple of 750s on the shelf, and they tell me I'm not the only one buying it.

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

    I went out and bought a bottle of the new stuff and can say I still prefer the B-F Ritt. I wonder how the WR Rye will compare in this. Did B-F use a proprietary mashbill/yeast while they were making for HH?

    Woodford Rye is 53% rye compared to the 51% used for 354 Ritt and DSP 1 Ritt. And of course it is a blend of unknown percentages of Woodford and B-F whiskey much like the Woodford bourbons.

    To me the old and new Ritt are better than the new Woodford rye and usually cost less to boot!.

    Great pic Enoch! Thanks for sharing. I love seeing the older bottles.
