    Other than WT, Beam/Overholt, HH brands and Van Winkle Old Time I don't recall any other American Ryes on local shelves in years past and certainly no old ones until Sazerac 18 made it's debut.

    I'm not biting unless it's barrel-proof, non chill-filtered, comes with a mail-in rebate, and is sold with a little 50 ml sampler of the 21 yr. dangling around the neck.

    Give a bunch of Bourbon Geeks an inch and they'll take . . .

    Fair enough, but as I just found out that the last bottle of ECBP I ordered (and had delivered to my brother's house) was "accidentally" opened during a party, I'll not be able to try it out after all...

    In any case, the ryes whose loss I'm bemoaning are pretty much just the Medley and CoK stuff we find in VWFRR, Saz18, Vintage 21/23, Black Maple 18/23, Hirsch 13/21/22/25, Willet Single Barrel's etc (which I guess really does amount to 2 basic ryes under a lot of labels). They used to be semi-affordable (VWFRR was 40ish? I think) and now they are either gone or on BX for hundreds of dollars.

    Yeah, that rye supply got spread pretty thin.

    Re: Why no 10 year Rittenhouse?

    All I wanted was a new label on the BIB (I think it's BY FAR the ugliest, most out-dated label out there. It looks like mid-90's MS-PAINT artwork...) but the thought of a 10 year old release really ups the stakes!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Why no 10 year Rittenhouse?

    [QUOTE=Yeti;365207]All I have in this world is my balls and my word, and I don't break 'em for nobody.

    Great line. Great movie. I'm in the same camp as most everyone else. I would love to have some Ritt at 10 -15 years and BP. There's just something about a mature rye at BP. Makes me thirsty.

    Dear God you are correct. That label is terrifying. But I think it throws people off who care too much about these things: they buy Templeton and Ritt stays cheap.
