    Was Weller Cent ever release apart from the BHC??
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Thanks. That is in the usualy ballpark for Texas, as well.


    And, Yes...BHC consisted of...Weller 10/100, VSOF, Charter 13, Dickle 10 and Harper 15.

    In Texas sometimes you can find Old Weller 7/107 in black bags that state BHC on them. But I don't believe it was actually part of the collection.

    I just saw a bottle of Old Charter Prop Res, 13 yo in a squarish bottle (similar to Wathen's) for $39. Is it worth it?

    Well, I guess that is the real question. To me, no. I like my BHC's around $28-33.

    If you have never had any of the collection...go for one. If you like what you find...you will probably dig on the rest of them. They are all quality whiskies.

    Price doesn't always guarentee flavor.

    I picked up a BHC VSOF today as well! I knew it was at this store and while driving past today I could here this bottle calling my name (AC!, AC!) Needless to say I quickly made the turn around pulled into the store and picked it up! I may open it tonight! I have not had one open in some time!

    Ben, to answer your question...Yes. The first release of the Weller Cent. was in a red-ish pink box and said BHC on it, all bottles in this box were from L'ville. The next release I like to call the transitional glass release, still had the BHC logo on the neck made in Frankfort and still very good! The very last release I've seen has a Gold Capsule (the Whiskey "Kiss of Death") sealing it, still good whiskey but at that point it was almost finished and I'm sure you know not made anymore!

    Hope that helps and is not confusing!

    Thanks Tony. I have been wondering for awhile.

    Also... Andy and I were talking about the 13 year old Weller Cent. Was that a regular release or a special bottling?

    Nice one, Tony....always a good choice. I know what you mean about the voices....bourbon calls my name, too...the OCPR haynted me for almost a month.
    BTW, tried your 4RSB tonight...really classic stuff!

    Re: BHC Dusty Score

    I have found a few bottles in the Miami area that I have been adding to my collection over the last few months. The prices I have paid are almost to the penny what has been mentioned in this thread. I have to wonder if these prices are not the original retail prices for these bottles and those of us who are finding the remnants of the late offering have been taking them for 10 year old prices. I broke the cap by accident on one of the Old Charter bottles a few weeks back. A full M1 clip of .30-'06 ammo fell of a bookshelf and hit the bottle cracking the cap....oh well. Anyway, I replaced the cap with a cork and have been drinking it for the last few weeks. The Old Charter is good stuff and worthy of the money. I, for one, will keep an eye out for more to add to my collection. Just keep the ammo away from the bottles.

    Re: BHC Dusty Score

    I've been trying really hard to track down a Weller Centennial and finally did today. It was exhilirating....also got a hell of a good deal on beer -- $11/case for Magic Hat & Leinenkugel....I took one of each. The Weller was $29, so not too shabby. Lots of work paid off -- I visited 7 stores. Now I've nabbed 3 VSOFs, OCPR and WC.....it's hard to watch a beautiful dusty spot lose its lustre, but when you're the one plundering, it goes with the territory.
