    Black Maple Hill Oregon Straight Bourbon / Oregon Straight Rye

    I noticed what appeared to be a new BMH listed for sale on an ABC website (initially I thought it was some leftover BMH 18) and I called CVI to inquire. Apparently they're releasing two new whiskeys under the BMH brand that will consist of a blend of 4-5 yr juice sourced from Oregon. It should hit shelves around June 2014.

    Has anyone else heard about this? I did a fairly exhaustive google search and wasn't able to find any info, or a press release. Knowing that it's relatively young and from an unknown distillery in Oregon tempers my excitement a bit, but I'm still looking forward to giving it a shot.

    Oh, and the MSRP is (an eye-popping) $90.

    $90 for 5yr old juice?? I think they're missing a 1 in front of it.

    Looks like the rumors are true that BMH really is struggling to find quality sourced stuff...

    I immediately thought "Clear Creek Distillery" but don't see much mention of them making rye. I cannot for the life of me think of who else might have been making Rye for that long in any capacity. Mysterious. And also yeah speaks to their desperation if true.

    Sourced from Oregon is different than made in Oregon.

    As with any new industry expansion there will be an eventual weeding out process as the consumer market settles out. Only those with superior product with perceived values will survive.

    True, I didn't hear ''sourced from Oregon'' from CVI, that was my own wording. I assume it means that it was distilled in Oregon, but not sure.

    What could the reasoning be for wanting to make the Oregon claim, I wonder? Unless they're hoping to sell a ton of it in CVI's backyard.

    If it was distilled in Oregon I'd put my money on Bendistillery.

    My immediate thought as well, those pipelines from Indiana run every which away.

    Well on a positive note at least those Indiana pipelines are running as opposed to the Keystone line.
