An acquaintance posted a picture of some new bottle purchases including the new Rittenhouse label. This came from K&L which perhaps has a pretty high turnover rate. Still, it presumably will start appearing on shelves soon.

That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

A HUGE improvement over the last label. Looks much like the original from the 50's and 60's!

Until Wednesday Feb. 14th, 1990, Michter's was "The whiskey that warmed the revolution."
I guess our turn-over for RittBIB is high, we've had the new label for a month or two. Nice label, but I don't like the higher price that came with it.
I really like that label. It's simple, but very appealing. However, it seems Rittenhouse doesn't move very fast around here, so I don't expect to see the new label anytime soon.
These label upgrades are alright I suppose, like a woman changing her hair color, but the goods stay the same.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
Haven't seen the new label here yet but @ $19.99 it sure is a great rye.
This was the label in 1989 or thereabouts. Please forgive the quality, but this is blown up from a shot of a whole shelf.
