View Full Version : Changes to Great Bourbon Web Site

Buffalo Trace's web site (http://www.greatbourbon.com) for its full line of bourbons has gotten a subtle update recently. Because BT produces so many different brands, I'm glad they're keeping it up-to-date. It's a good way to see, among other things, what they're keeping in general distribution and what might be slated for termination.

For example, Old Charter 8-year-old is the featured Old Charter expression and the only other expression that appears at all is the 10-year-old. The 12- and 13-year-old expressions have disappeared.

Likewise with Virginia Gentleman, only the 90 proof "Fox" is shown, the formerly-standard 80 proof expression is not.

People who have been worried about the continuation of 10-year-old Ancient Ancient Age will be glad to see it represented. (Jim Murray called it "mesmeric.")

Or has anybody tried William Larue Walker?

I saw that and actually walked over and checked my bottle.

Ah, 10yo Ancient Ancient Age! I've had one bottle of that only, unfortately long gone, and it was delicious. Got it in trade from an SB member, and I opened the bottle and toasted the day he dropped by. It didn't last long, and I recall a sweet, drinkable bourbon that I'd love to run into again some day.
