    My father-in-law drinks WT 90% of the time*, always on the rocks, so I've had my fair share of it, but I usually drink it on the rocks with him. When in Rome and all that. I enjoy it, but wouldn't buy it and drink neat like I usually drink whiskey.

    * 90% of the time that he's drinking whiskey, not 90% of all time. Although sometimes there's little difference.
    I believe both Makers and Weller are wheaters. Is WT101 more of a high rye one? That would make it spicier, correct?

    Just bought a bottle of the 101, and I really liked it.

    I drink WT 101 the majority of the time and really like it. YMMV but I think it's the best bang for your buck out there.

    Of course Paul can't get Barton where he lives.

    I'm in the "It's good, but there are better in that price range (and below)" camp.

    Nothing wrong with it, solid stuff... just a lot of competition in BT, OWA/W12, Fighting Cock, OGD BIB/114, Elijah Craig 12yr, etc in the same price range and lower, that I would take first.

    It's currently $16+ ($17 w/tax) on sale here. At that price I'll stock up. It's my favorite <$20 available (main competition - Jim Beam Black @ $16 and Old Grand Dad 86 @ $15). At >$20, I just won't buy it. I use a dollar-value rating system and WT101 = $18.

    [Not available: any other OGD, VOB, Weller, Old Forester. FC103, BT, Ritt100 are $24 here.]

    That's rough. FC is $13.99 here. But I would still take it at $24 compared to a WT at $17.

    BT is $18.99, while OGD 86 (or 80 now, I suppose) is about $9.... all while WT101 is roughly $22.

    Re: Wild Turkey 101

    I just picked one up and drank some. It's really good. I like it.

    It's not any better or any worse than OGD, but good to know that anyway.

    It's spicy, and a bit sweeter than some, and the wood is present, but not overwhelming. I will put it on my list of the good ones.
