    IIRC, Ky Beau is a HH brand that they still market.

    Bourbon Supreme made a journey from Illinois to Publicker in Pa to Medley....maybe a few more stops on the way. I opened a bottle of 1982 Bourbon Supreme KSBW the other day and was surprised at how good it was. It was definitely older than the four yr statement.

    Another label from Medley was Mellow Corn.

    Georgia Moon was in the Glenmore stable at that time too, though I don't believe it got there via Medley. At that time, all of the corns on the market were either Glenmore or McCormick (e.g., Platte Valley).

    Georgia Moon came to Glenmore with the acquistion of the Old Mr. Boston Brands and the Viking Distillery.

    I'll take one of each, please and thank you.

    Re: Medley Bourbons

    "cats and dogs" isn't a comment about quality. The term simply refers to very small brands with limited distribution, essentially synonymous with "odds and ends" but without the connotation of scraps or leftovers.

    The irony is that the late 80s -- early 90s was a great time to be a bourbon drinker, because even the lowliest brands contained well-aged whiskey due to the glut. The present day is exactly the opposite. Bourbon has never been more popular, so the bottom shelf is full of the very young and the won't-get-any-better.

    I remember those high water mark days Chuck, and the 90 proof Medley bourbons.

    I was drinking a lot of 10-year-old (though NAS) Kentucky Tavern, real Stitzel-Weller Old Fitz BIB, Barton's VOB and even Ten High. They were all great.

    What about Mellow Corn?

    I think I had my first taste of Mellow Corn when we were doing that shoot. I was not impressed. I have since come to appreciate its unique charms.

    How many bottles can we fit in the time machine? I'd like to join you for that trip to the past. Maybe we could send a 5 year old kid (who looks 21) back in the time machine, there will be more room for bourbon.

    P.S. - Anyone who has a time machine for sale or rent, please PM me.
