Does anyone know how widely VG90 is distributed, as opposed to the more common VG80? I've heard tell that VG90 is superior.

I don't think superior is the right word, better sums it up better.

I've never actually had the 80, so I can't speak to the difference. But I like VG 90. If you're looking for complexity, or a life-altering experience, look elsewhere, but it's a nice everyday pour in a very nice bottle.

To the point of the thread, from what I understand it is available in KY, VA, DC, NC, WV, and in limited quantities elsewhere.

Lol I could not have said that better myself.

We can get the 90 proof for $70 AU (approx $52 US) here in Australia. After Chuck's comment, I'm glad it is the 90 and not the 80 as Iv'e been wanting to try this for some time now..... I might just have to order a bottle (don't tell the Wife :skep: )

Wow 52 for VG is there anyway you can get a 50ml of any of these bourbons to try before you drop all that money.

How's the VG 70? Non-potable?

Illegal, unless labeled diluted, as in a mysterious item on the MI liquor list called "Deuces Wild Old Style Diluted Bourbon"

Unfortunately, not likely. It's imported via a single retail specialty store three states away, and I doubt they'd have any 50ml minatures. Anyway, for Australia, the price is reasonable (it's on par with Bakers) :skep:

Not in Austrailia...I believe that 70 proof is the standard.

That's interesting, Cam. Baker's is about 25-30% higher priced, here.

FWI, I'd take the Baker's every time. Although, if you're looking for an example of one of the "sweetest" bourbons around, go with the Fox.

I don't see the 90 around much. Saw it a couple of weeks ago, in Bristol, VA. Kentucky, too. Besides that, not so much.

Thanks Joe, due to my incredibly sweet-tooth, that's sort of my goal :)
