How old was that first Rittenhouse...and what year was it supposedly distilled?

I don't know what HH did with their part of the barrel sale from Medley??? Mr Medley said he sold a bunch of barrels to HH after their fire...when they needed much distillate.
When did Bernheim sell off a bunch of barrels of rye to Drew? Were they also distilled in the mid 80's before Bernheim shut down for the remodel?
I had heard that there was Bernheim rye blended in with the Medley to help fill bottles for the VW label...but, did not hear that BT used it for Saz, as well. Why would Julian get rid of rye for BT's labels...when he needed as much as he had for his own labels?
I am really enjoying this rye discussion. Great info.
Lastly, Barton was filling Rittenhouse labels???? When did this happen? How did y'all know it was a Barton product?
