    25

    For $25 is Wild Turkey 101 or Elijah Craig 12 the better buy and why?

    On paper, EC 12 is better deal because it is 12 years old.

    I would buy WT101 over it though.

    I love em both so either way, you can't go wrong.

    Elijah Craig every time. I'm not much of a Turkey guy though.

    A lot depends on your preferences and the price relative to other offerings.

    I prefer EC12. I think its age makes it a little more complex. However, I think WT101 is probably more consistent and "smoother."

    Looking at price, EC12 is normally between $24 and $27 in my area, while I can easily find WT101 for around $20.

    If you have never tried either, I might start out with the WT101. I would think that it would be the safest bet for someone looking to try something new.

    This. I like the WT101 better as well, but I tend to like the turkey.

    I prefer the woodier profile of the EC12, but YMMV.
