    It also got a mention in Esquire Magazine. Here is a link to that story:

    Because.....

    Because he received his shipment of Dougdog's near perfect Willett 22yo, 136.7 proof Kentucky straight rye whiskey. Thats why.

    Looks like this is going to be a great weekend.

    Looks like it is time for 20+yr rye shoot out.

    The chat last night, yielded questions about the Rittenhouse 21.

    I tried to find this note during the chat but decided to post it instead. Seems that folks are saying that most all of it is going to New York. I specifically asked him that question.

    Here's "part<---of a private message" sent to me from Larry.

    Larry is the person who told me most of it is going to New York, but since he put the above in writing, let's consider that operative.

    Getting a bottle of this stuff...

    Ya know...I've been on top of this thing. Right after the first bottling I posted where the first shipment went. I looked for myself.

    After last night, seems that folks are just a tad bit aggravated for not seeing this on their shelf. I have no control over such things and I do my best to find out all the information that's there.

    Not long ago, a member (maybe he will post his experience) of this forum sent me a pm asking to help him find a bottle. His state was not listed as on of the distribution points. I gave him the number to call and told him a contact.

    He was successful He's been "promised" the Rittenhouse 21.

    The number is 502 348-3921 ask for sales...They will connect you to Rachel or Ms. Hamilton...and direct you throughout the way...

    Hope this helps with your questions... I sincerely hope that all of ya, that want one, will be successful

    I am in NY and I have now been called by three different stores that I frequent. All of them letting me know it's in. If you want me to pick one up for you,send me a PM. They are going for $140 at every store I can get it AND they are going fast.

    As you all know (or should) in the flatlands of Nebraska we are very resistant to change. In terms of Bourbon and Rye that means, if they haven't sold it locally in the past, they are not going to on trying to sell anything new or different. So...I have to be very creative and very aggressive in trying to find things. Please don't interpret this into my being stingy or obnoxious, I sincerely hope I am neither and I try very hard not to step on other peoples toes.

    That being said, after talking to Bettye Jo and asking her what might be the best way to pursue Rittenhouse 21, she provided me with the information she just posted. Eventually that lead me down a path that got me to an individual that said I was out of luck. Later in the conversation he did say that he thought he would go ahead and buy some for me if I wanted and bring it to Nebraska. If anybody here is interested, PM me. I will warn you straight out that I am not going to get many, and if it's only 2, I may be only able to pass along one, but would be happy to do so and will do whatever I can do. I'm thinking from what he said, I should be hearing from him in about another 30 days.

    Keep in mind too, I don't have it and don't know for certain if I'll ever see it. But not through a lack of trying
