    RHF - what happened?

    So I was reading through an old thread today and it appears that RHF used to be well regarded around here - it's dropped off the radar a bit here on SB but I'm wondering what happened to RHF? Did something happen to make it fall out of favor?

    For reference, here's the thread I was looking at:

    I don't have an answer to your question.

    However, I have noticed that here in Central KY the distributor has been out of RHF for weeks, at least.

    It hasn't dropped out of favor with me, but availability has become an issue as of late, at least here in Ky.

    I see RHF quite often down here in FL. I might have to pick up a bottle to see if it is something that fits my taste buds.

    Another bourbon often mentioned in that thread was Baker's. I love Baker's but hardly see it mentioned here.

    Oh, I wouldn't say fallen our of favor so much as supplanted by the much wider range of choices we have now than 7-8 years ago. I still like RHF very much I just refuse to pay extra for the package and I expect in the future the same thing will happen to the NDPs as more and more members start refusing to pay extra for a label.

    I loved the bottle of RHF I ad. Few months ago. Went very quickly. Reminded me a lot of a nice iced tea. Never harsh. Super easyovdrink and just damn tasty. Would love to have more but there's so much else out there I want o try.

    I forget... What's the non-fancy-label version of RHF?

    ETL - reduced in proof and price.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Ancient Ancient Age, 10 years old, 86 proof. Less complex, less rich, lower proof, same mashbill and approximate age.

    ETL is a close to the same as RHF but a different profile, ETL is sweeter and I think a bit less complex. Rock Hill Farms is Mozart, Elmer Lee is Beethoven, both are very good.
