    i admit, i haven't found a bottle of the RR 101....and really really want to...but i totally recommend the 90. wonderful stuff.

    p.s.
    your report on the RB might cause me to go ahead and lake a run for it myself...on sale now in PA lcb stores for $29.99......

    Andy, that sounds like a good price. I think the RB up here was around $35 but not sure. The RR I believe was in the $40's.

    Also, as an update to my run to the liquor store, please check out What bourbon did you purchase today? Oh, what I find!

    Hey Andy check out the what bourbon did you purchase tonight post and look what Mark got tonight. The RBreed took a back seat.

    Looks like Mark is going "Stagg" tonight!

    Ouch, The old RR 101 was always around $24.99-$26.99 in these parts. Forty five dollars and some change will get you a fifth of KS.

    Brad, based on what you've written above, I probably screwed up the pricing there. It was probably $40-something for the RB and then $30-something for the RR.

    My memory has once again failed. Not shocking.

    Re: Russell Reserve or Rare Breed?

    well, mark, try RR90 when you can.

    but i am sure that Stagg find was meant to be...!

    how much does it go for? i don't PA or DE sell it...

    oh and yeah, the price was turned around.

    RR90 is about $25 or so here...RBreed is a bit higher...but like i said, on sale for the month for $29.99

    Re: Russell Reserve or Rare Breed?

    I know the final vote has already been tallied, but my vote is for RB. RR is good, but RB wins it. Although the only RR I've had is the 90. If anyone out there know a way I can get my hands on a bottle or two of the 101, let me know...I might change my vote

    Tim, I was about to get the RB when out of the blue the '07 BTAC fell in my lap! The RB will have to wait but I certainly will buy it at some point in the future.

    Re: Russell Reserve or Rare Breed?

    I prefer the Russell's..that has a very good flavor..Agree with one of the guys above about Rare Breed having a "hot flavor"..Not a juge Wild Turkey fan....Get the Russells...
