    BOTM 6/13: Wild Turkey Rye 101

    Sorry I'm late. Been pretty busy lately, and it slipped my mind. Besides, there's no way I could be early three months in a row.

    Wild Turkey Rye 101. It's been talked about on the site lately. It's one of a number of bourbons/ryes that is either losing it's age statement, changing proof, or disappearing completely. It's this months Bourbon Of The Month.

    Once again, I haven't had this one, so no comments from me. Let's hear it for Wild Turkey Rye 101. Cheers!

    I haven't had any but I do see it on shelves around here still. Maybe I'll grab a bottle in the next couple of weeks. I know there has been lots of rumors of it being dicontinued but this seems to contradict that: http://bourbondork.blogspot.com/2013...in-turkey.html
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    BOTM 6/13: Wild Turkey Rye 101

    WT 101 Rye is a very tasty pour, not a punch you in the face kind of rye but works wells as a daily pour. I have 20+ bottles bunkered as with any label change always comes the chance that the new stuff just won't be the same.. It is now very hard to find in my area and I don't think I have seen a bottle local to me in about 3 months...

    I wonder why it sold out?

    Grab them. The Campari Group has made it all too clear that they specialize in removing their good whiskey from the market and replacing it with younger and/or more expensive juice that doesn't taste nearly as good.

    I have only about 1/3 bottle left and have been nursing it along (i.e., not drinking it) because of its "historic" value. (Yes, I know that's dumb.) I like it better than the current WT101 bourbon but not as much as Baby Saz, RRR, or Bulleit 95 Rye.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    We were told on the WT tour last week that they hope to bring it back in about 2 years or so.

    We heard the same thing last year. "About" is a marvelous word.

    About as long as the preliminary market research stage which follows.

    Haha, nice.
    They told Chuck Cowdery it would be back in 2013.

    Jimmy was also excited to tell me that they just broke ground for the new bottling hall. He hates having it bottled in Arkansas.
    Which reminds, me, I need to go post in that thread once summer officially hits...
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
