    WT Rye 81 proof?!

    Something weird on the newest supplemental Michigan liquor list this month (yes I know half my new threads are about stuff on the state list ). Wild Turkey Rye 101 has been removed and an 81 proof Wild Turkey Rye had been added. Has a new 81 proof version been released or is it switching to 81 proof or is this a mistake? Anybody seen this mysterious WTR 81?

    I hope this is a mistake. The WT rye at 101 is perfection.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    101 rye + more water = higher profits

    I haven't heard anything. I hope it's a mistake. For one thing, they already have RR rye at 90 proof. It also seems like an unlikely move. Why fix something that isn't broken?

    This is probably just a mistake. I imagine it's the 81 proof bourbon that's replacing the 80 proof. I imagine (and hope) someone just messed up. If not, I'll be buying a case of the WT 101 Rye, which I think is damn fine whiskey.

    I'll start hoarding too if there is a change in proof. I'll wipe out all the local state stores!

    D'oh. That would be the obvious thing to do, wouldn't it?

    Just posted on their FB page.

    No response from WT as of yet and an 81 proof WT Rye is still listed in Michigan.
