    I'll throw in a recommendation for older bottles of WTKS. There's some fine whiskey to be had in those bottles.

Those were not tinged with nostalgia or pride over how many were "bunkered", a word I hate, hate, hate to see on this forum and one that is used CONSTANTLY.
    Worth seconding...Rittenhouse BIB is still easily available and I think anyone that has done a side by side with the WT101 will agree that the WT is just not that great. Besides the Rittenhouse is usually a few bucks cheaper.

    I've never had WT 101, but I've been drinking the heck out of WT Rare Breed, lately. Love that stuff!

    That's my pick of the WT offerings JW.

    I really like the 101 but don't care for the RB at all. Something seemed way off in the bottle I got and I've never revisited it.

    Cheers!

    Disagree--100%. Rittenhouse is fine and I enjoy a bottle from time to time. However, I find Rittenhouse too bourbon-like and short on rye spiciness. In this regards, I much prefer WTR101--more intense aromas and flavors.

    Yeah, I'll take the WT over the Ritt as well*. Or at least I will as long as I have some.
