    Anybody heard of Clementine 8 y.o. 101 proof?

    I came across this bottle in the back of my favorite liquor store (in Miyazaki, Japan.) There was only one bottle. It was very dusty. 750 ml, I think. It was priced slightly higher than Wild Turkey 101. I think it was produced in Bardstown, KY. It had a rather strange lable with the image of a woman on it, like a turn of the century painting. She must be Clementine. Round bottle, not square.

    What is it? Searches here and on google didn't help.

    I didn't buy it yet, but it's unlikely anyone else has either.

    I have a bottle.. It is either HH or some other brand with a odd label... I have not tasted yet, but it and the Mark Twain, and two other make up the set of 4.

    Rebecca is the 8 yr, 86 proof bottle and the third is Anabelle I think... I do not know the proof, but I think the yr was 6. The Mark Twain is a 12 year.


    Bourbon Japan Guy can probably fill you in on more....

    I took a picture of the Clementine label on a store shelf when in Japan last year:

    According to the tag on the store shelf it's a Heaven Hill product.
