Found a 750 of Wild Turkey Rye 101, still in the Austin Nichols bottle. It was on the bottom shelf and covered in dust. 

Nice, enjoy that!

Would love to find one of those to compare to the current stuff!

I recently worked my way through a sample and found it to be a solid rye with a Jack Daniels accent. Not earth shattering or even really a contemplative rye. Just a solid utility pour for cocktails or occasional sipping.

Appreciate the info.  I'll probably hold off for now until I can try it somewhere.

 

WT 101 rye has become my current cocktail and everyday sipping rye, with baby Saz and  HW double rye or various mgp ryes as backups/alternatives.

 

....and it doesn't sound like the JD rye is going to be better than any of those.

Also, I wasn't super impressed with the JD single barrel rye that came out last year (the one in the maroon box).

At least here a lot of the stores have 50mls of the JD rye so you could always pick 1 or 2 of those up.

One of the benefits of dealing with a company that perfected mass production decades ago.
