Having never had it, how does it compare to Rittenhouse?
For the moment there are 2 Rittenhouses, DSP354 from Brown-Forman (made on behalf of Heaven Hill) and DSP1 which is now made by Heaven Hill and slowly replacing the DSP354 (although DSP354 is still pretty common on shelves for now).
WT 101 Rye is another relatively "low rye" rye whiskey like Rittenhouse having only 51%, or perhaps slightly more, rye with most of the rest corn. LDI/MGPI rye is 95% rye and 5% barley and so it is not surprising it is more rye "assertive" and has less sweetness and body which comes more from the corn component.
DSP354 is to me a bit more bourbon-like than DSP1 and I think WT 101 Rye is probably more similar to the new DSP1 than the older DSP354. That said the difference between all three is pretty subtle in my opinion and hard to pick out in a cocktail that isn't mostly rye.
