    I haven't seen any comments on this either, Jeff, but my uneducated guess is no. The color is SO dark for a 6yo whiskey and I put part of a bottle in the freezer and got lots of cloudiness and a little sediment.

    I've also noticed a tendency for Rittenhouse BIB-based Manhattans to cloud up. I consider that to be a Good Thing.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    I had to buy my Rittenhouse in NY on a trip to Buffalo. For some reason the State of PA has decided not to offer it.

    Could it be their affinity to only buy and stock the very finest world class whiskies such as Jim Beam White. Whoever is picking the whiskies to stock in PA is an idiot.

    I have to revise what I said about PA. Rittenhouse is listed as a SLO (Special Liquor Order) for only $11.89!

    Any PA liquor store should be able to order with the info below.

    Did you ever order a SLO? I did. First you must buy a whole case and put the money up front. Then you wait between one and three to four months to get it, after firing off several phone calls to those inept individuals who can never answer your questions anyway. I'm no fan of the PALCB.

    As a matter of fact I have bought a number of things SLO. Only once was I required to buy a case and I didn't want it that badly. As for time, I don't think I've waited more then 3 weeks for anything. Overall, I've had good experience with SLO.

    Cork and Bottle

    All,

    I noticed on the shelf yesterday at the Cork and Bottle in Covington that they have the 80 proof and the BIB for $9.99 and $15.99 respectively.

    I received today some promotional material about the new 21 year old Rittenhouse, including the attached letter. I found the letter unusually interesting for this sort of thing, which is why I'm sharing it.

    Two interesting facts about the product itself. First, it is the first product Heaven Hill has sold that is not chill filtered. Second, they are referring to it as a "one time bottling," whereas originally we were told that they had whiskey in the pipeline that would permit annual releases and it would not be a one-off.
