Thank you for your very kind comments. I don't post often, since most on this site including yourself know more about bourbon and have more discerning tastebuds than I.
Our little tasting group worked together and have been friends for many years. We enjoy getting together smoking cigars and drinking bourbon. A Southeren Gentleman such as yourself is always welcome to join us, if you venture north of the Mason-Dixon line. You are always welcome to stay at my house.

I didn't know that. With Rittenhouse being a HH brand, do you know what kind of arrangement there is between BT and HH on this?

Julians rye is now a blend of two ryes. The original made by Medley and Cream of Ky made at either Bernheim or BT(when it was AA).
Rittenhouse is made for HH by Brown Foreman.
