A customer came in and asked this Q to us. Did not know. What does it denote and how did the term come about?

I believe it is a brand of bourbon from Heaven Hill Distillery. It is a "cats and dog" brand; not one of their premium brands.

Here's a picture of the four on market,
The 21 year is a premium bourbon,HH makes great stuff !
Well atleast the bourbon is from HH , I don't know who bottles this.
I think Bettye Jo knows where these are bottled.

The one on the left (or, at least something that looks very similar) can be bought in Alabama ABC stores. I haven't had it for many years. I don't have a fond memory of it - about like J W Dant or something.

I will rephrase this to say it is not one of HH flagship brands that is promoted here in the US or on the HH website.

Yes, Koji, you are right they are our products http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The 21 year silver wax (ps) silver label is really unique. It's a signature brand of Parker's...on the side of the label it has his signature, Parker B. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

That one on the left did some seriously bad things to my head a few weeks ago http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Apparently I was singing and dancing and talking all kinds of stuff - most of which I have very little memory of http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
The rest of those bottles don't make it to Australia (I'm not sure about New Zealand)
Koji, I didn't see any of those bottles when I was in Tokyo last October. Are they readilly available in the Japanse market, or are they something you buy from the US?
