    Not to worry.. they will still be offering the WT Rye 101, they just won't be making any

    Sadly, it won't ever be again .... at least as an expression or at price we will recognize...

    That's why i decided to bunker one....JUST in case. They will no doubt change the label and price...I would question what the contents will be.

    is the Reserve Rye any better? I can find a bottle of that.

    I like it but I'm the very vocal minority here.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Well, just as long as your palate is like mine, then it's all good.

    Hard to say but you should read this thread to get some opinions on the 101 vs the RR. My notes are on page 2.

    One of the stores I stopped in yesterday had the new 81 @ ~$20, the 101 had been marked up to ~$30 and the Baby Saz was near $40.

    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    One reason I never bought the WT 101 rye as often as I could have is price. In Indiana, even when regular WT 101 can be found on sale sometimes for around $18, the rye right next to it would allways be $25+ (never any sale). As a matter of fact, just the other day I passes up a fully stocked shelf of WT 101 rye. I didn't buy a single one, but for $5 less, I was very happy to take home some Rittenhouse BIB.
