    I'm not sure if it's been posted elsewhere, but here's the blurb about Rittenhouse 21 from the recent Bardsotwn Bourbon Society newsletter. If nothing else, it's a beautiful bottle.

    Wish they'd update the website so we could register for the Bernheim tours, like it advises us.

    I seem to remember the rye sample offered during last year's Festival as barrel proof (around 120) and very good. Does this sound familiar to anyone else? I thought HH might try to go the barrel proof route with this rye.

    I need to "fill in the blanks" here...A sort of "the rest of the story" kinda thing.

    The story goes like this:

    We toured Heaven Hill, last year during the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. We were given the opportunity to taste several different bottlings and a few "rare" one's ta boot. The rarest was straight from the barrel Rye...

    Everyone loved it. They loved it so much that our group wanted to "buy" a barrel. We checked on it and after a bit of investigation...Larry, told me that they only had 33 barrels of that particular year. They would work out something and try to make it available. Next thing I hear is Larry telling me they were going to produce a Rittenhouse Rye Single Barrel, with those 33 barrels....

    And...Here they are. In my opinion, I believe that this bottling is a "direct" result from our tour that September night

    Kinda Cool

    Bettye Jo,

    I’m sure the content are delicious but I miss the nice plastic screw cap from the other Rittenhouse versions.
