    I'd rent you mine, though the tank is empty and it will only run on VVXOF 15yo/100 proof.

    Ah, yes, the TimeDrinker 2000. Great machine, but you spend all of your time traveling time finding the fuel for it. Seems like a design flaw to me.

    Funny this topic comes up just as there is a Medley Bros (90 proof, 4 years old) Bourbon on auction here.

    I would add Kentucky Tavern in the group as well, at least during that time period.

    Ky Tavern was a Glenmore product until it's sale to Barton.

    Kentucky Tavern was good stuff in the early 80s, I sorta lost track of it after that.

    Yes, I have enjoyed all of the Owensboro bottles I have sampled. They were very flavorful for the money.

    Yes Jeff, they were good and good value. A friend of mine drank only 10 year Charter and I took a bottle of Kentucky Tavern to a dinner party at his house on a Friday night in the early 80s. He bought a case of Tavern the next day.

    Re: Medley Bourbons

    If the Kentucky Tavern I was drinking in, say, 1985 was 10-years-old, then it was distilled in 1975. Therefore, it may have been distilled at Glenmore in Owensboro (not Medley) or at Yellowstone in Shively. When Glenmore acquired Medley they kept the Medley distillery in operation and closed both of theirs.

    I vaguely recall that one of the reasons Glenmore was sold was because Buddy Thompson kept threatening to restart Yellowstone and the only way the rest of the family could stop him was to sell the company.

    Chuck I can see why such a threat might carry meaning. Of the good Bourbons that have fallen by the wayside I am puzzled why those who could didn't keep Yellowstone going. It was just a right whiskey, right quality, right price.
