    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    I just talked to the manager of my closest liquor store and he said but could not confirm that the rye was going to 81. So I bought several bottles. Another one bites the dusty.

    Under most circumstances, I would be with Fricky. When I started this thread, I thought it would be proven to be a mistake fairly quickly. But with three states listing 81 proof WT Rye and Enoch's store owner, it's starting to look like it really is changing.

    Decent rye is just getting harder and harder to get. I went out in search of some WT 101 Rye this afternoon...hit 3 stores and came back with 1 bottle. Every store was sold out of RR Rye and Bulleit Rye as well. Only Beam Rye was available (with the exception of the one WT I picked up).

    I also forgot to mention that the new 81 proof WT Rye is listed as the same price as the 101 NC. I don't know whether WT made the switch due to financial reasons or strong demand, but either way they're coming out over 20% ahead.

    Everything else is shown with new new tops and new lables I have not seen the the current WT Rye to see if it has new tops and new lables yet so it may be current I don't know.

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    Well that pretty much does it.

    Not a fan of Baby Saz, and while I like RittBIB, it's not very Rye-y to me. WT101Rye was my favorite go-to, everyday Rye.

    Plus, Ritt and Baby Saz are never on the shelf. I could always find Turkey.

    Good luck hunting.

    I can't attach images from my phone but I sent a pic of the new label to Josh. Looks like I wasnt the only one searching the COLA site.
