    Re: Wild Turkey 101

    Id agree with 90% of the guys here that WT101 is a good whiskey. At its price point ($16 here) There are others id buy before it, but not many. Id pay a little more and get better whiskey, but sometimes when you just want wild turkey, its better than those too!

    Saw another dusty 8 year old 101 this week. Think I'll grab it shortly. Anyone seen the blue label 12 year olds? Who are they made for?

    And sometimes the price variation is based on local price controls. In Ohio, the price of a 750 of WT ranges from $23.05 to $23.20 because of county taxes that are imposed in addition to the state mandated price. Most of my bourbon dollars are spent outside of OH not because of the price but because so much of what I buy is not availabe at any price in this state.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Your signature makes me think of the song "Hemingway's Whiskey" by Kenny Chesney every time I see it. Then I can't get it out of my head.

    I did not know Elmer Keith was a Wild Turkey fan.

    It figures. The inventor of the .44 magnum. He's my hero.
