    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    I just heard a rumor that WT RYE101 is indeed going away in order to move the focus towards RR Rye. Did not hear anything about a WT Rye 81, but in any event I think this is bad news.

    I recently obtained a dusty bottle of RR101, and am amazed by how much better it is than the 90pr. And now, my dusty WT Rye 101 will also blow away the 90pr.

    If this is true, it's quite a sad day.

    Interesting. I would have thought that they sell 3 or 4 times as much of the 101 rye over Russel's Reserve.

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    A completely unscientific online review of the state stores in my county show only half have WTRye and those that do are showing low stock. Every store usually has at least 8-10 bottles listed. Given Rye's growing popularity, this could just be a blip on the radar....that being said, I'm headed to the store.

    Just checked the NC ABC price list and WT Rye 81 has taken the place of 101. Time to go pick up a couple bottles of the 101...

    The PA LCB website now officially lists the WTRye as 81 proof.

    The WT website still shows it as being 101 proof and the website seems to have been recently up dated. It shows the bottles with the new tops on them.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Paul, I just checked the website, and the Rye 101 is shown with an old top, and old label.

    The PALCB has made significant errors in the past. One of the more notable ones concerned their listing for William Larue Weller at an incredibly low price. They were actually referring to Weller Antique.

    Here is another example of questionable listings by the PALCB.
    They have 2 listings for Wild Turkey Tradition 14 yr bourbon. Both listings are for 750 ml bottles. One is for 101 proof and the cost is $63.99. The other is for 80 proof and it is $104.09. In addition, it is special order and you must buy 6 bottles.
