    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    The 81 is a real disappointment and will not likely "take off" with new consumers, so about all WT accomplished was to irritate the rest of us who loved the 101. As a result, they've driven me further into the arms of other producers and I'm buying more Rittenhouse BIB than ever before.

    Funny because it is true. If I come across an open bottle somewhere, I'll admit -- I'm curious, I'll bite. Sometimes one needs to be reminded that fire is hot.

    Update from Massachusetts: WT81 rye on the shelves everywhere. Doesn't seem to be moving. WT101 rye is gone, baby, gone, it's all gone away...

    I love it when people reference a local band.

    Plenty of WT Rye 101 out here in Park City, UT and no 81 in sight. It might just be the local stores though and not representative of the greater SLC area, the 81 is on the state price list and the 101 is marked as "limited" whatever that means.

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    Walked into a PA state store after a meeting this morning. I haven't seen the 101 on the shelves for a few months but there right in front of me were 4 bottles!! I bought 2 and left the other 2, I have already have several in the bunker and didn't want too be greedy.

    Ha! Well, you never know. Never been to MA but a good friend just got back from Cape Cod (Brewster) and loved it. Got me thinking.
