    Ditto. Don't reduce it, don't filter it, just dump it. Change the label slightly, increase the cost accordingly (w/o price gouging), and you couldn't keep it in stock (for a while anyway).

    Re: Why no 10 year Rittenhouse?

    There was a Rittenhouse 10 for a while under the HH aegis, initially export only but I think some was sold in the U.S. I saw it on Gazebo tables. Excellent it was.

    A mixture of ECBP and GD 114 should come pretty close. At 51% rye grain Ritt passes for a Bourbon with most palates.

    Hmm . . . that sounds like a good mingle. Quick - to the bat cave!

    Sounds pretty good, but at an average of 20% rye and 5 years (please correct me if I'm wrong), I'm not sure it exactly fits the aged, rye whiskey bill. The 21/23/25 you mentioned certainly do (had a bottle of the 21 and am saving a 23), but they really pretty overpriced. Really, I'm just sad that we are entering a older rye drought. BP would be phenomenal, 100 proof nice, but really I'd just like to see some age.

    You guys are greedy. I'd settle for a 10 year old BiB. Hell, an 8 year old BiB. That goes for bourbon, too.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
