    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    It will be very interesting to see what LDI's new owners do with that rye.

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    That part does have me worried. But fortunately bunkering a small allotment of this has allowed to to sleep better at night.

    But seriously, they would be have to be nuts to change it up. With the limited rye market, they really have a amazing niche, one of which they do very well.

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    Just saw a 6 yr. Willett rye on the shelf. I liked the 5 yr. Actually have an open bottle on the shelf now. Might have to buy the 6 yr. just for comparison purposes. The one that's all but disappeared is the WT 101 rye. My personal favorite.

    Re: Willett Straight Rye Whiskey

    I was able to get the Willett 3 & 5's for $30.99 at my local shop. They had been out for awhile, just noticed they are back at $35.99. Still probably worth it, but I liked it alot more at $30. What are the rest of you seeing for the 5?

    I tasted a 6 year at KBD last month and it was very impressive. I bought two bottles but haven't opened either yet.

    Incidentally, I just looked and my bottles say distilled in Kentucky. Different juice or mislabeling? Hmm...

    Low $30's. Still a great deal for a tasty rye that really so far as flown under the radar of most people.

    I put it above WT101 any day. Personally, i think it just is a better all around spirit when either straight, cut with some water, or used in a cocktail. 101 falls short in the diluted category.
