    Wild Turkey 12 year and Russel's Reserve 101

    I found several bottles of Russell's Reserve 101 proof and Wild Turkey 12 year at a small liquor store for $25 dollars a bottle. Should I get them?

    No, I would suggest leaving them there and telling me where they are.

    Russ Reserve 90 proof retails for about $30 here, and I consider that a good but not great value. 101 proof for $25 sounds a lot better.

    The RR101 and the WT12 are both rare finds and should be grabbed and bunkered. Don't pass those up.

    You should buy all of them. You will love the WT 12 one of the best bourbons ever made, and the RR 101 is also very good and $25/bottle is ridiculously low priced. A great find.

    I agree, except you should tell me, not barturtle. I can be trusted not to drive the 500 miles to Columbia.

    I just knew that distance off the top of my head; it's not as if I mapped the trip or anything.

    The RR101 is a classic!!

    I missed RR 101, but WT 12YO was one of my favorite bourbons when it was available. I should have bought a case or two, but had no idea it was goin' down when it did.

    NOTE TO CAMPARI: YOU COULD RE-INTRODUCE WT 12YO 101 JUST ANY OLD TIME NOW AND I WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL. Particularly while Jimmy is still around to tend it.
