    Re: New Product Wish List

    I have a derby liter of Woodford and all I've seen in that size is a horse race bottle. ( Derby or Oakes) was the bottle you saw like that or just plain?

    Re: New Product Wish List

    Sorry, I didn't look at it that closely after comparing the prices. There was something a little different about it, though.

    Re: New Product Wish List

    Your suggestion of a A 90-95 proof Basil Hayden made me hanker for an extra-age/high proof Old Grand-Dad, maybe the 116 in a 10-year-old version.

    Omar,

    What I've been waiting for is Labrot and Graham's Pot Stilled Bourbon. Hope it's ready soon!

    Re: New Product Wish List

    Now there's a bourbon idea! I'd love to see if that bottling (I think you mean 114, not 116) would give the same "dark fruit" barrel effect of WT 12 YO, since it has a high-rye mashbill. I also have the thought that it might taste somewhere between Rare Breed and the VW rye 13 if the barrels were decent.

    Re: New Product Wish List

    I hear that. I recently opened my new (and first) bottle of OGD 114. I enjoy it, very much. It seems to me to combine many of the qualities of Rare Breed (especially the strong burst of flavors) with the taste profile of Bakers and/or Bookers. But maybe a little sweeter than the latter two.

    This is a very fine bourbon. After my purchase, I had grown to doubt my selection of it, but no more.

    Is OGD 86 as bad as everyone says? I can actually buy it here at home. Hell, it is cheap, maybe I should just try it for myself.

    Right, 114. Count the other two points as more wishful thinking.

    I wouldn't call OGD 86 bad, but it is pretty ordinary and higher priced than a lot of equally good (i.e., similarly mediocre) whiskeys. If I want OGD, I always step up to the BIB or 114.

    Re: New Product Wish List

    And that seems to be the consensus. I suppose I should just pass on the 86 and enjoy the 114 while it lasts.

    Thanks, Tim

    Re: New Product

    Greg, all:

    A new 130 proof whiskey in the works at BT? I thought bourbon couldn't be bottled over the 125-126 mark...and Bookers was pushing the limit.

    Can you clarify this? Also, I was under the impression that bourbon needs to be a minimum 80 proof/40% Alc. But in Australia and New Zealand, there are a couple of 'Kentucky Straight' bourbons bottled at 37% Alc. And a bourbon 'drink', named Silver Dollar, that's a mere 22% ABV. At least they call that one a 'drink', not a KSB.

    So, what's the story?

    Omar
