Also in the future,when reviewing bottles that are single cask/barrel or small batch ,could the cask/barrel or batch info be included?
Any and all info will be appreciated.
Thanks for that. Sorry about getting back to you sometimes I dont see everything on the forums.
The answer is that sometimes when we receive a small batch/cask/barrel such as Rittenhouse 21 we often only get sample bottles ourselves which do not contain all the info you get on a normal bottle. This is because there is, by its very nature, not much spirit to share around and we only get what we need so there is more out there for you guys to drink.
I take your point and it is something we can look at in the future when we have small batch tastings.
Glad you like the Rittenhouse - am a big fan of it myself as well.
