...you decide to take a 300+ mile round-trip color tour, and you make sure that it passes through Plymouth, Wisconsin.
I completely overlooked the Steven Foster, but a bottle of Fleischmann's Rye and a VWFRR "G" series bottle came home with me. It has been almost a year since I last saw VWFRR on the shelf in Chicagoland.
I'm currently sipping some of the Fleischmann's, and it's quite impressive for something that costs about $17 for a 1.75 liter bottle! The nose is a bit weak, but the palate's good - a bit sweet, but not bourbon sweet. The finish is a bit oaky, but not objectionably so. I'd love to see this available south of the Cheese Curtain. Certainly, Chicago is itself a rye stronghold, so it would fit right in.
My take: for ultra-low-price ryes, Rittenhouse 80 had the edge for the nose, Fleischmann's has the edge on the palate, and Old Overholt falls in the middle on both. Rittenhouse BIB is still the king of the category, though.
