    Re: Russell's Reserve Rye?

    Being a fan of both WT Rare Breed and their rye offering I had at times wondered what a Rare Breed Rye ( a blend of 6, 8, 12yr. stock) would be like.

    Re: Russell's Reserve Rye?

    Well this is great news! WT rye and or Rittenhouse Rye BIB are for me daily pours as I always seem to have one or the other both open at all times. I am hoping for 101 proof though. I wish they would boost RR bourbon back up to 101 proof as well. Good stuff it is.

    Did this new rye make an appearance at the KBF this weekend?

    I did not see it unless it was at the Gala, but I did not attend this year.

    We were at Wild Turkey during the KBF and were told that the RR Rye was not released yet.

    It's on the shelves locally (No. KY) at least since last Friday.

    Re: Russell's Reserve Rye?

    I picked up a bottle here in Wisconsin last Friday. well deserved pour after work. It reminded me of the regular WT rye. But I didn't have one on hand to do a more direct comparison. So I will pick one of those up as well as another Rittenhouse BIB so I can do a side by side comparison. Also I will see how the Van Winkle 13 year rye competes.

    Re: Russell's Reserve Rye?

    Would you consider doing a head-to-head between the RR rye and WT rye reduced to 90 proof?

    Considering the difficulty I'm likely to have if I decide to acquire a bottle of the RR, I'd like to know in advance that it's distinctive in some postive way.
