    The highest form of bourbon philosophy and one to which I also have a life subscription.

    Re: Russell Reserve or Rare Breed?

    Of the Wild Turkey's offerings (WT 101, RB, KS, RR 101, WT80) the two that stand out in my mind as having the most character are RB and RR 101. I don't know why but they just stick in my mind more than the others. RR 101 is a favorite of mine and have 3 bottles in the bunker... waiting for a great reason to open one. I haven't a good palate but every-once-in-awhile the cinnamon note from it is just fantastic!
    Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    I too have this feeling. There are some exeptions, I have had teh non-chill filtered KS recently and the older KS (2000 and older) have been memrable.

    I am also lookin gfor teh WT Legand that is suppose to be the best of the WTs.... Care to comment anyone?

    Re: Russell Reserve or Rare Breed?

    I have always found it difficult select a "be all" bourbon given that my mood and palate calls for different things at different times. As for WT I like all their offerings. For those warm summer nights the RRR has really been a great pour, with a nice cigar the spiciness of the RB works very well. The 101 works very well for me in a Manhattan while the RR101 seems to go well with a good BBQ...

    The best of the WT..... not sure I can pick one
