Found a mess of DSP 354 Rittenhouse

Interesting old school stuff— dense and austere, sour versus sweet, black-peppered oak with savory spices— and a great delivery. Takes water well and has a true finish.

Mine is called Ryediculous and is very tasty, heck, it is a favorite of mine but the volume of those 200 mL, is just that, small. ??

Have not seen any 200ml bottles.

 

I got mine from the gift shop last Nov (2018) and it's a 750ml.

Those bottles look different than those we find in KY. Same price here. 

Poor record player!

They are a few years old from when Heaven Hill still wasn't bottling their own Rye after the fire in 1996, these were actually distilled at Brown-Forman, for a very brief time these bottles were used with the current DSP-1 Heaven Hill but they changed pretty quickly to what you see on the shelves now.

This is absolutely fantastic. The single barrell store pick KC and KC Rye are (IMO) the best price & age for the dollar available right now.

Made a stop at Peerless today as I am in town for a barrel pick at 4 roses tomorrow. Had the 3yo small batch and 3 different 3yo single barrels. One of the single barrels stood out compared to the others (although I still didn’t really care for the small batch) but still falling a little short of the asking price for me...

Hooefully with time they will will get there. But still a little ways to go.

200ml was readily available in the gift shop today. Not sure the 200ml has made it to Atlanta but also haven’t really been looking much of late (for anything).

Thanks for your thoughts.  I thought the 2 year showed promise.  Curious if you think the differences in bottles were attributable to the sweet mash process of different batches or where the barrels were aged.

To me it seems like it is probably the impact of the individual barrel. They don’t age anything over about 6 rows high at the distillery or apparently at any of their remote locations so warehouse location is likely to be less of an impact over time. I expect most of their oldest barrels are still at the Rick house located at the distillery. 

 

Also saw some barrels of bourbon that have just turned 4yo so presumably that release won’t be too far away. June of this year if I remember correctly. Kentucky only to start with and then will go wider. No idea what the cost will be!

Couldn’t agree more.

Amazing job there Kevin on the Ritt 354.  I still have a stash of the 354--good stuff for $20ish a bottle.  You must have done quite the double-take when you saw those sitting there.

It's funny I've run into a bunch of DSP1 in those bottles over the last few years so I kind of just assumed it would be more of those needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when I flipped to the back of the bottle, the only real issue was how many I was buying at that point.  For context I left a couple Laphroaig 18's on the shelf so needless to say I was pretty excited.

Yes, I’m posting in the rye forum. Don’t everybody faint. :huh:  My wife and I needed some time away, so we took a drive up into Wisconsin yesterday. We stopped in one small town to get gas. There just happened to be a liquor store right next door. ^_^ Long story short, I bought a handle of Fleischmans Rye.  I figured I’d bring it to put on the Gazebo table  at our get together next month. 

 

Biba! Joe

Who are you and what have you done with Joe?

RR 6YO tonight.  Have always loved this one.  It has been slowly going up in price here but still reasonable.

 

Seem to be going through this one fast.  Why is it that bottles of rye never last as long as bourbon?

Grabbed a Piggy Back 6 year WP. Didnt know if it was gonna be a regular release or a hard to find bottle. $49 so worth a gamble. 

Any buzz about this one?

Surprised this one is already out there in the wild, Label Approval wasn't very long ago at all, I don't love the price but I'd be interested in trying it.
