    The aging cycle and its effect on production planning and, hence, sales planning is one big oddity. So is the legally-mandated three-tier distribution system and, probably, the intense and oddly state-specific regulatory environment. Federal law usually tries to ensure a consistent national market, but does just the opposite with alcohol.

    Stopped in to my local chain and all the WT101 is gone. Probably cleaned out by sales, as I saw an old label WT80 in the bargain bin for $10.

    While I haven't checked everywhere here in Atlanta, it seems that all the WT101 Rye is gone. Any idea when the WT81 Rye is going to show up?

    Picked up three bottles at a local liquor store today, they looked like they had been sitting there for some time.
