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

    Just like the title says, I'm curious if anyone's had a chance to do a side by side of DSP 1 Ritt and DSP 354 yet? I'm REALLY worried that the DSP 1 won't be nearly as good, so I'm trying to bunker a case of 354 just to be safe...any info out there would be most appreciated!

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

    I have seen a few comments about them. Here is one from Gary.

    I have both and have tried a bit of both. I don't see a lot of difference between them so far other than DSP 1 seems a tad lighter in color. But I would really like to sit down with them and try them out with a few other people and especially try them out side by side blind to see what I think.

    That's a tasting for which I'll cheerfully volunteer.

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

    My blind side by side was freshly opened bottles of each. Really close but I thought the 354 was a bit spicier/hotter. Surprisingly I picked the dsp 1. But not by a long shot. Or even a medium shot.

    Bruce shared my other posting, but I was happily surprised that I picked the DSP-1 in a few blind-tasting rounds. Still want to do a couple more just to be sure, but the difference between the two wasn't huge. I'm definitely encouraged, as I didn't want to have to bunker 354 unless the 1 was a disappointment.

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

    Was inspired to take the Rittnehouse BIB for a test run when a friend came over.

    Both of us tasted them blind using single old fashioned glasses. I did not find them to be dramatically different but the DSP1 was the choice for both of us. A bit more body and corny-ness to the DSP1 than the DSP354.

    But used in a cocktail I doubt it would make any difference at all.

    Having a nice big pour tonight - and I have to agree. Although I'm not doing a direct comparison the DSP1 doesn't seem that much different to me. Wish I still had some 354 to compare.

    With many positive reviews coming in think I won't worry aout grabbing any more of the 354s.

    This is all reassuring, but I grabbed a few more 354's I found for a decent price none-the-less. This is one of my all time favorites so I figure I can't go wrong.
