    That's how good spokesmen come across Jack.

    I was just about to say something to that effect.
    A good company man is always "genuine" and a gentleman - otherwise he won't be a company man for long ....

    Re: BOTM 6/13: Wild Turkey Rye 101

    Last year I bought a few of these solely based on input from members here, and when I finally got around to opening one I found out that I love it. Unfortunately I have 1 open (over half gone) and only 2 stored away...and one of those is suspect (has some white flakes in the bottom of it...I read about the white flakes somewhere on here, but can't remember what that is). If I see this around I'll be buying a few more.

    Similar mistake i made. I figured these fine SB.com gentlemen couldn't be wrong...bought 1 @$23, sat on it for 6+ months (just had other bottles in rotation). Finally cracked open and promptly kicked myself.

    Very drinkable, good balance of spice and mouthfeel. 1 or 2 cubes in hot KY weather and it tastes like i'm drinking sunshine.

    I don't like it. The 81 proof rye makes it tastes like VWFRR, tho.

    Big fan of this rye. Snatched up a couple bottles when driving around kentucky sometime this past winter. Great stuff.

    Yeah, I am afraid you are right. I think when/if it comes back it will be much younger they way the 101 bourbon has become. I thought maybe my tastes had changed so I tried another new WT 101 bourbon..nope disappointing and much younger tasting than it was even 3 years ago.

    Got one of these suckers back at Christmas-time because of all the news about it going away. Not much of a fan, the minty flavor is just to prominent for me.

    Not 'bad' but I won't miss it when it's gone (still got a few pours left...)

    I've only had the 81 at home, but I sampled the 101 at the distillery a couple of times. I'll drink either.

    Still finding a few bottles in Indiana in the $23 - $25 range. I guess I better buy some before it disappears.
