    What rye did you purchase today? Fall/Winter '13

    First bottle of VWFRR thanks to a very generous SB member who found it for me.

    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Fall/Winter '13

    Aaaand first to reply in a thread I started. Anyone else want to play along or is everyone in "save for the rarities" mode?
    Anyway as to the topic at hand WT Rye 101 at $23. Just adding to the bunker in case the doomsayers are right. And if it does come back the downside is I've got some very good and inexpensive rye to drink.

    It is an NDP rye for the Japanese market. Based on the flavor profile I have no idea who produced it as it does not taste like anything else I have tasted. It also is not a "straight" rye so that could have something to do with the different taste profile.

    Rakuten pulls it up as American Rye, but no distiller mentioned....so i'm still baffled.

    So we chalk this up to a random Japanese marketing manager buying a barrel from HH/etc.. and making his own labels? (based on the art, he/she may have).
