While reading a thread about Eagle Rare it occurred to me that Wild Turkey's move to a 90 proof version of Russell's Reserve will make the Wild Turkey and Eagle Rare product lines align more closely.
I'm a fan of the ERSB. Does that mean I should calm down and cut the WT folks some slack? (A rhetorical question, especially given the de facto price increase inherent in that change.)
I recall someone here saying that Eagle Rare 101 was originally, shall I say, "inspired by" Wild Turkey 101. Could it be that the roles are now reversed?
I have yet to see the new bottle for Russell's Reserve. However, if they have replaced the current, beautifully painted bottle with a cheaper one, as I've heard, I suppose that fact would belie my theory.
