The Heaven Hill tours stink now. I was very disappointed at my last trip. They have completely redone their tours and tastings for the worse.
Maker's Mark I think is a very good first tour to go...
A couple things to add to what I said above: According to the information I have been able to gather (reflected in the whiskey tree), VOB and 1792 are different mashbills. It's likely that 1792 is...
I like this one fine. I agree with Brisko that it doesn't always do well with water or ice, but I think it's a pleasant summertime sipper and a nice change of pace from the more aggressive high-rye...

I think restaurant man was trying to tell us something.
Welcome from Royal Oak! I love SW MI, used to go there a lot for winery visits but unfortunately haven't been back in several years. Cheers!
Welcome! I love how global this community is. You're off to a great start. Cheers!
Welcome! Contrary to this area's rep as CC country, we have a very strong Michigan contingent of bourbon lovers! On a related note, there's a get together at my place in Royal Oak on Aug 24, check...
Welcome! We have a strong contingent here in the mitten state, especially in the SE corner. Cheers!
I don't like it. The 81 proof rye makes it tastes like VWFRR, tho.
Welcome Dan! Being a whiskey guy in Michigan can be a challenge, but it's getting better by the month. Cheers!
Welcome Jack! I'm a transplanted northsider myself. Central Indiana has a lot of great whiskey folks, get to know them!
Welcome! Always nice to have more Hoosiers on the board!
It's very possible that B-F distillate went in there. They have also sold bulk whiskey many times over the years.
It's also possible that B-F made some bourbon for Heaven Hill in the post fire...
I had a bottle of this 2-3 years ago. It was not bad but not very interesting either. It's not sold here but I saw plenty on the shelves in Ketucky. I didn't pick any up. I spent my money on handles...
Welcome Matnab! Good to have another on the board! Cheers!
Great! I grew up in Indianapolis and there are some great members there. Again, welcome!
Welcome OD! Whereabouts in the Hoosier state do you live?
No, not off topic at all. I had just never heard of an Old Charter 101 proof from the 1970s. I'm interested in learning more about it.
There was a 101 proof Old Charter in the 1970s?
The bourbon this thread is talking about is actually Charter 101 (no old). What does your bottle look like?
Welcome again Pete! Glad to see you're making it forum official.
Thanks for the tip! May pick another one up.
I may have been a little harsh. You can definately do a helluva lot worse at that price, but Charter 101 is, at best, a mixing bourbon. It does very well in coke and pretty well in a manhattan and...
