Imagine my surprise seeing this on the shelf at Binny's yesterday in 1L bottles, good think I looked at the price. For $45, I could buy 2-3 bottles of Rittenhouse depending on where I shop. Unless this drops considerably, It just doesn't seem worth it.
Yikes! I like the older stuff WTR101, but I wouldn't pay $35 for a 750 of that - which sounds like it still beats the pants off the new stuff. I really wonder - is WT selling enough of the 81 rye? I see it on the shelves all the time, but don't know anyone who likes it. I'd much rather than do an aged 101 version (maybe 7 yrs?) and just scrap the 81. I'd probably pay $45 for that - at least once.
