Okay, a bourbon vs. a rye, but I find these two to be fairly similar, though I can get the bourbon for about $5 less (on sale) than the rye. Which is better to you? I'm going with the Wild Turkey and not only because it's cheaper. My bottles have exactly the same color and very similar profiles (same spice, same wood finish), but the WT101 has a bright cherry tone vs. a plum tone for the Ritt. The Ritt may be a bit more flavorful, darn hard to choose, I guess.
