    I tried that here in Texas with poor results. Seems the WT offers to take all old stock from the store to ensure the new label takes it's place. Not all.stores.do that, but most will.

    I've not had a recent Rare Breed, but everything else without an age statement tastes young and raw.
    It's just not that, they have out marketed their resourses. WT is not really a big player in the bourbon industry but they try to be.

    M organ (Pieface) says they can't get the 8 yr export over there in Austrailia any more.

    I found 4 bottles of russels reserve 10/90 for $15 per, I dont recall the original price because it has been so long since I have bought some, but if you all can remember, let me know.

    Around here they go for about $30.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    This is all sad to read. I have a bottle of '04 KS that I've been enjoying the hell out of. It really changed my opinion on WT. Sounds like I'll have to seek out older bottles if I want to continue enjoying the brand.

    The RR 10/90 just came back to to the local grocery store shelves, haven't seen it for awhile. I can still get a handle of the old label 101 there as well.

    Dusties are the only way I'm able to enjoy this brand.

    Although I'll optimistically try these new releases to see how they show.
