    Under, say, $40, yes! At $40, maybe. Over $40, it becomes problematic.
    Please note, I'm speaking as an assayer of fine bourbon, not an eBay post-marketer. I'm sure, someday -- since it's been discontinued -- it'll hit the magical $100 (and up) mark, which makes even a $75 price today interesting. You won't find ME paying that, though (and why not, you asked -- don't you like profit? Ya know, it's this sort of think that chased me out of coins and stamps 15 years ago. I liked them for the history -- imagine, a coin that may have circulated in Thomas Jefferson's pocket! Some folks thought they had value!).
    Of course, I'm poor... (except in experience and good fellowship...)

    Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes

    OCPR was one of my favorite pours. I can still taste it in my mind

    I remember liking it quite a bit, but it's been a long time since I've had any. Had sort of forgotten about it. This one has a high corn recipe, right? Or am I confusing it with I.W. Harper?

    Believe me, I will drink everything i buy. I am not looking for an "investment"
    I found a couple for $35. I just didn't want to waste my 35 bucks on bad swill.

    And, Sijan, you say high corn??? meaning sweeter?? would you compare it to anything else???
    Cheers,

    Re: Ocpr

    Did is look like this?


    OCPR 13 yr Frankfort Bottling (newer)

    OR

    Did it look like this?



    OCPR 13 yr L'Ville Bottle (Older)

    Both good but the Older "slope shoulder" bottles from L'Ville are a little bit better IMO!!

    Cheers!

    I have not had teh older, but the newer was good... I paid $40 for it and decided that I found others (Weller Centennial) I like better.

    Scott, you should go ahead and pick it up. It is a good bottle for you to have..... and $35 is a good price

    Re: Ocpr

    I recently got one of the slope shoulder OCPRs from another sb.com member, and I like it a lot. I'm trying to be conservative with it until I come across another bottle of OCPR at a decent price.

    If I found two at $35 apiece, I'd probably buy them both.

    Cheers!
