    What rye did you purchase today - Spring/Summer 2013

    I feel silly when I have an all rye buying day and then I post about it in the bourbon purchase thread, so I'm starting this thread, hope its not too out of place.

    Today I bought a Jefferson's 10 year rye, a baby Saz and found my first WTR 101. Also picked up my first bottle of Dickel rye. Passed on many overpriced bottles of HW21 and a Hirsch 25. Oh, and a boatload of Willett 5 yr old rye.

    I am so rye deficient. I have more bottles open right now than I ever have and the closest thing I have to a rye is Bourye. Not good. At all.

    Wait, the Bourye's good, I meant my open rye deficiency is not. Just to be clear.

    Clearance! I seem to be only finding it at marked up prices!
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Wryguy, I had the Dickel rye for the first time last week. I loved it. My store ran out of it at 21 clams so I am waiting for a restock. Interested to know what you think about it.

    Grabbed a four-year old Willet rye this week. There's been plenty around the local shops.

    Wild Turkey recently applied for a new WTR 101 label. Hopefully it comes back at a reasonable price and of similar quality to the old.

    That label is for a one liter bottle, is this geared toward the restaurant/bar trade?

    Good catch. I seem to recall hearing a rumor that if/when WTR 101 came back it was going to be primarily (exclusively?) for on-premise consumption. How they would prevent bottles from being sold to the general public is beyond me though.
