    It has been a few years ago now......I want to say 2004-05 but I may be wrong and someone here will correct me if so. I got a nice surprise a few days ago when I moved some stuff around in my storage room and found 2 bottles of the RR101 I must have stashed away some time back.....early holiday gifts from a day gone by.

    I believe the Russell's Reserve went to 90 proof in late 2006 early 2007 with the Reserve Rye being released this year!
