    Old Yellowstone

    Back in the 70's when I was learning about bourbon, I recall buying this excellent whiskey. I liked it because it was very drinkable straight at my preferred 80 proof. Also, it was fairly priced and much better value than many higher-priced products.

    It had a flowery, sweetish aroma and flavour, very balanced, rarely "spirity" or acidic.

    Who made Yellowstone then?

    Is it still made now? If so, has the palate changed since the 70's?

    G.M. we just discussed Yellowstone a couple of months ago. Try doing a search or just scan back through a few pages under 'General Bourbon Topics' until you find it. I believe that will answer most of your questions about that brand.

    Thanks. I did search first, Old Yellowstone as a phrase, and nothing came up. I tried Yellowstone alone after seeing your reply and presto!

    Troy's original post reported the taste just like I recalled it from the 1970's, including that medicinal/ash-like note.

    I wonder if his bottle might have been from Glenmore stock.

    Anyway, good to hear this prodcut is still around.
