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

    I recently did a SBS of them both. My preference is 354 by a wide margin. The 354 has a much deeper and richer flavor profile, which matches a sample I had at a bar some time back.

    Sucks to know that its now a finite supply.

    They'll be pulling 354's off the shelf for years to come. No worry's

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

    The DSP 1 is in Indiana. I didn't do a side by side, but really enjoy both. I was not disappointed by the DSP 1. It reminded me in some ways of the older WT 101 rye. It's not exactly the same as the DSP 354, but I feel the quality is equal.

    DSP-KY-1 is in Kentucky. It's new bernheim.

    I think he meant the DSP-1 is now available in stores in Indiana.

    Oops. Carry on. Apparently my reading comprehension is not as good as my bourbon drinking. Ty

    Yeah, the DSP 1 product was found by me in Indiana last week. It tastes less like a high rye bourbon, and more like straight rye whiskey (as others have said).

    DSP-1 juice just hit Montgomery County and I picked up a bottle and put it up against DSP-354. I agree with many who have said the quality of these two are equal....but I preferred the new stuff. Much less "bourbony", even though I have enjoyed the old stuff too for years.

    Outside of my initial jump into ryes at the beginning of my exploration into this hobby of ours, I've never had much use for the 354 for the same reason you mention, B...too bourbony. Fine enough, and certainly nothing wrong with it , but lacked the rye punch I looked for. To my tastes , the DSP-1 has stepped well into the recognizably Rye category. I much prefer this new iteration. For the first time in many years, I'm compelled to have Rittenhouse BIB always open on my bar.

    On a side note, the repackaging is a winner to my eye, as well.

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

    I've cracked into a DSP1 bottle and also find it more rye than bourbon forward. It's also very easy drinking at 100p.

    If they can keep it on the shelves under $30, I'll probably end up drinking way too much of this!
