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

    I had just picked up a DSP-1 recently before reading this thread. I like it fine, although it seems a bit more mellow than the pour I had at a bar a few months back.

    Just a couple of days ago I ran across some DSP-354 and picked up one. Haven't tried it yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to doing a comparison.

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

    Here are the tasting notes of the DSP-1 that I put up on my Blog. I couldn't find DSP-354 to do a SBS, but based on memory, I slightly prefer the 354. Still great stuff that I will always keep on hand.

    Nose: Solid rye backbone. Créme brulée, toasted oak, and caramel green apple.
    Palate: Slightly thinner than I remember the DSP-354 being. It also has a lot more spice. 'Nilla Wafers, clove, salted caramel, green apple, Sichuan peppercorn, spearmint, and baking spices.

    Finish: Long and warming. Some bitterness but not off-putting. More baking spices, cocoa, clove, and a whiff of fennel.

    Great taste and still $19.99, doesn't get any better than that.

    A new label has been approved. It looks great. Sorry, I can't post the link

    Thanks Phil & Brian! It's not a thrilling label but it's definitely an upgrade. Didn't some old Ritt labels look similar to that?

    Still looks like poo, but that's okay.

    New label makes me scared they are going to jack up the price.

    It is a lot like the label under Medley, Barton and early HH days.
