WTR 101 was what the other WT expressions used to be: a straight forward, honest, in-your-face (in a good way), unapologetic whiskey. I fear if it ever comes back to market it will have devolved like the other WT whiskies.... shadows of their former selves. Sigh.

You mean it might be Camparized?
I really enjoyed this one and put a few on reserve when I heard it was going away. I drank JB rye for a while, but this was the first one to really give me an impression of what rye was all about. As others have said, it's in-your-face, but in a good way. It is very rye forward without being unbalanced or unpleasant. Here's hoping they bring it back intact.

I noticed that, and his insistence that they still make the whisky "the same way" though we know they don't. With deference to the gentleman I am mindful that since the French bought the company in 1980 he has been a company spokesman and they write the tune he sings.
