    Well, despite Chuck's rosy predictions, the year is more than half gone and still no 101 rye. Maybe in the Fall?
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Well the WTR81 doesn't seem to be flying off the shelves and since I bought one I know why.

    The price of education is high but experience is priceless.

    The current word on WT101 Rye is September time frame. A lot sooner than initially predicted.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    I really hope this is true. I haven't been able to bring myself to pop open one of my bunkered bottles yet.

    Ok, I opened one. I forgot how amazing the 101 rye truly is!

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    If it does re-appear in the Fall, I'm curious how WTR101 could come back so soon actually ... I thought it was about 4 yrs old? Unless WTR81 and RRR have not moved as they expected giving them enough barrels to bring back the WTR101, this seems pretty quick to me.

    Was WT already ramping rye production 3 or so years ago, and they just had a temporary shortage that they dealt with by launching the WT81 for the cocktail mkt? ... or really a "self-created" shortage, using barrels normally targeted for WTR101 to get Forgiven out there knowing they could get the WTR101 back on the shelf in less than a couple of years.

    Pretty smart if that is really what happened here - they get two new products out there, one a premium at that ... and recover on the WTR101 faster than expected.

    Another view is they are getting the 101 on the shelf now and getting twice the price for it.

    I'm not holding my breath for the 101 return. And if it actually does come back, will I spend $35-$40 on it? Doubt it.

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    Since it's my favorite rye, I hope it's not in that price range or I'll go broke.
