    Re: WT Rye 81 proof?!

    Whether she's gone forever or becoming a woman I can't recognize, it's sad to think of what has become of the rye which took my rye virginity.

    Anyway, I too am in the awkward position in which the 101 has disappeared but the 81 has not yet arrived. No fun.

    That's completely insane. Well, not as insane as actually PAYING that much for it!

    I tried a sample of this today at the distillery and it tasted like you took a glass of WT rye and dumped a bunch of water in it. It was awful I have no idea what WT was thinking.

    Oh no, it's very, very special! It has a little bit of 5-year rye in there, as well, making it 'the oldest-aged major Rye whiskey in its category". That must have a list of qualifiers that would make a lawyer shake his/her head in admiration.

    I was hanging with OscarV last Saturday and he handed me a glencairn with a mysterious straw-colored liqour in it. "Try this and tell me what kind of whiskey this is." I tried it. "Tastes like a weak Irish Whiskey," I said, "no flavor at all really." "It's Wild Turkey Rye 81 proof," he replied. "God, that's terrible," I said. "It is," said Oscar.
