    How does WT Rare Breed compare to regular WT101?

    Been mighty tempted about Rare Breed, but since it's about double what the WT101 costs thought maybe I could get some ideas about what I would be getting into....

    Any thoughts or experiences are appreciated.

    Re: How does WT Rare Breed compare to regular WT101?

    It is by far the best in the WT line for the lower price tier in my opinion. While it might be a little more pricey, it is far more complex based on my taste preferences and something I reach for more often than not. I will say, I have experienced a wide price range for this as well which surprises me. I have seen it for as little as $30 at my usual store, all the way up to $46 at other stores around the country. If it was more in the mid $25 range, it is something I would think about making as a daily pour. I'm sure others here will disagree, but to me it isn't even a contest against 101 and something I really like a lot. Hope this helps.

    Rare Breed hands down for the reasons el just stated. Shop carefully though, I've also found the prices to vary quite a bit.

    101 has recently become a favorite every day value pour for me. I tried Rare Breed for the first time 2 weeks ago and found it to be a much more flavorful bourbon. More complex and layered. Similar flavors but amped up in intensity. Definitely worth it to me. It immediately became one to have on hand at all times. As the others said, price varies quite a bit for some strange reason so shop around. I see it a lot in the mid to high $30's, but have purchased it in the high $20's and will always stock up when I see it at that price.

    I wish I could find RB for that price. I haven't seen it below $40 in NJ.

    I've bought a couple bottles at $34, but am balking at $38, especially since I stocked up on WT101 at $16. WT101 is good and Rare Breed is better, but not twice as good.

    It is in the low $40 range here in MN also. I bought one last night. Campfire in the neighborhood, so I brought the bottle over. Today when I was looking in the bunker, I found another bottle of Rare Breed. Hmmmm, completely forgot about that bottle. Maybe its time to keep a list with me so I can buy different bottles.

    Oh well, this bottle is good enough to have several in the bunker. I really, really like this one.

    RB is one I always have on hand, I like the 101, love the RB its like a technicolor version of 101. The flavors in RB are much more vivid and layered, really good!!
