    Elijah Craig by far. The last WT101 I bought was swill.

    I would go with the EC12 as I much prefer it to WT 101. Only WT I like is Rare Breed.

    Definitely the ec12 my favorite pour for a long time,(I buy them by the 1.75's) but with this bourbon boom the price has gone up from around $23 to like $29. Still I have the wt101 also just a little bit rougher for me,but still good.

    I'm not an expert on either... but from what I remember of EC12, it was dark, unsweetened chocolate with lots of wood bitterness on the finish. There were several posts/threads that season regarding overly woody EC12 though, so maybe it's usually better balanced.

    The WT101 I've had over the last few years is a nice balance of vanilla sweetness and rye spice. Not much barrel/wood flavor.

    I'd give a clear edge to WT101... but really need to give EC12 another chance.

    You are shopping at a crummy store if WT 101 is $25. They are not in the same price range around here. So EC 12 is my vote for the money.

    I find them to be quite different. While I enjoy both, I would give EC12 a slight edge. If you decide to upgrade up the WT line, my opinion would definitely change, as I am a big fan of Rare Breed and Kentucky Spirit.
