    FIRST, to MikeDS: a big welcome to this board. You'll find a wealth of information here as well as the nicest guys and gals anywhere - very understanding and forgiving. I don't know of a member here who is not always willing to advise and help you along in our journey together.

    SECOND, I am beginning to think there is no AAA 10YO left anywhere but KY.....at least that has been my experience to date.

    Pick up a bottle of AAA 10 year old at Binny's last month and just check their web site and it is listed there.

    Binny's on Clark usually has it.

    Had a busy weekend folks, didn't get to post. Sorry about that. I believe I'll be taking a lunch time trip to Binny's in Highland Park!

    So for the Rittenhouse Rye. I'm guessing BIB means "bottled in bond" but I don't really know what that indicates. How is that different from the 80 proof?

    Thanks!

    It's 100 Proof and six years old, the 80 is four years old I believe.

    I've side-by-side compared the 80 proof and 100 proof Rittenhouse expressions and the BIB is definitely a different and better whiskey, although the 80 proof is not bad at all.

    Sooo I made another lunch trip. This time to Binny's. I snagged a bottle of the Rittenhouse Rye but they didn't have the AAA 10yr old. I'm guessing there's a difference between the AAA 10 year old and the AAA 10 star? The plastic jug wasn't something that looked too enticing...

    The definition by rote is a pretty dry exercise. Basically it was the good housekeeping seal from the BATF and always 100 proof.

    I guess by definition some of my previous post misses it a bit.
    I still think it means a quality product but the writer here doesn't think it always does.
