Been hunting this stuff a few weeks now, found out they dont make it no more, stopped at a lil hole in the wall and found it in the mix of the new ones in the very back of the shelf. for some reason it excited me.. Now the question is.. to open it or not to open it...

Why would he buy another if he doesn't know if he likes it or not? OPEN IT!!!

Well, if you never open it, what's the point of having it at all? Look at it this way, you have only been looking for a couple weeks, and you found one. There ARE more on the shelves out there, somewhere. If you like it, and can't find anymore, there is always that trading option.

Not trying to be a jerk, it just hurts me to see perfectly good bottles sitting around not being dranken.

Well, if you think you'll head to Middle Tennessee anytime soon, open it without concern, and call me when you get close -- I see it nearly every time I go 'huntin''. Not that scarce here yet...

I am with Tim and Jeremy on this one! Open it and taste it, you may find like I did that it's not really to your liking or not enough so to bunker a bunch of them. I bought a few before I had really tasted it only to find that it didn't really impress my palate, not as much as say regular 101 or even way less as much as the older 8year that I was still seeing on the shelves. The RR101 is still on many shelves in here SoCal...

Open it and enjoy it.

Its not an expensive bottle and I'm sure that it won't be the last you'll see. Worst case you'll pay a bit more than you paid for this one, but I don't see this bottle ebaying for more than $50 for quite some time.

WTRR101 is my favorite bourbon, so I keep an out for the stray bottle. In fact, I found one today, while cruising the White Horse Pike on Thanksgiving morning - a nice surprise on Turkey Day!

By all means drink it - it's the quintessential bourbon, for my money.

There's a bunch of bottles of RR in both the old bottles and new bottles at my local liquor store. All are $28.99. Never tried it...is it good? What's the difference between the two?

The 101 proof bottling in the turkey-etched bottle is the original version. The bottling in the short-necked, squatter bottle is 90 proof, and some here consider it an abomination perpetrated by the 'suits'. It is, nonetheless, the one that's going to last on the shelf longer. Buy the other one.

Anything rare or hard to get hold of is reserved for my "special occasion" drink.

Open it when you think the time is right. It's good stuff I assure you!
