    Don't get your hopes up, I liked it at first but it has that RR taste after a while that just doesn't sit well with me.

    Was at the distillery the other day & they said next year they'd be releasing a barrel proof 17 year old whiskey. No one was sure if it was a SB or not

    How tantalizing, next year they say? Must be too busy to get around to it before the holidays.

    Must say I like the trend though, no need to get the independents involved.

    I keep changing my mind about whether to try a bottle of the RRSmBSB. Is the RR taste that a lot of people mention the tobacco-like flavor, or something else?

    I missed all the threads about this and bought one the other day on my increasing love for Wild Turkey products.

    I really liked it and was surprised to see so much hate on it. Though I will say that tasting it side-by-side with WT101 makes you wonder what you're paying the extra $35 for.

    I also found it kind of humorous that I saw this on the way home from purchasing it

    Might have something to do with the original RR 101 being...beyond duplication...though may never be a fair fight as I'm convinced RR 101 (at least early batches) had whiskey even older than 10 years.
