    Re: WT101 Rye Returns?

    Looking forward to opening tonight. Just got the new ones in 1ltrs (bar size) havn't seen on the shelf, I'm guessing these might be for bars only(?)
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    That was the claim of the brain trust at WT. You cocktailians () wanted 81 proof because the 101 was just too strong and now the tune has changed 180 degrees and it returns primarily in 1L bottles for on premises use because cocktailians want more proof. Indecision may or may not be their problem!

    Supposedly little or no rerelease in 750ml but I think there have been some reports of the 1L bottle showing up at retail.

    If you have some of the former 101 handy I think many folks would like to hear a SBS (preferably blind!) comparison to see what new tricks the fine folks at Campari, I mean WT, have up their sleeve...

    That's funny because when they announced the drop of wt 101 to 81 it was the cocktail bars in Chicago that bought everything left in the warehouse and left nothing for the whiskey bars.
    I'll do a blind soon, have plenty of the old around in my personal collection and the bar's.

    Reminds me of the tour guides at Jack Daniels who when asked why the proof had been dropped from 86 to 80 were scripted to reply:

    "Well we did the research and that's what the customers wanted"

    I'd like to meet the customers that were in that study group, bet I could fit 'em all into a small room.

    I ran across the liters I'm a store on Thursday morning. 31.99 I believe. I will grab one when I get back. Will do a side by side of the case I bunkered when it disappeared.

    No liters of WT Rye appear on the state list and the 101 proof listings are a closeout prices.
