    Special 75th Repeal bottles?

    I know that both Old Forester and JD released a
    special 75th Ann. Prohibition Repeal bottle and I
    was wondering if there were any others?

    Binnys had a pile of the OF at $15 when I stopped by just before Christmas.

    I do like the glass that comes with the OF set, but I'm not in a hurry to get one for our local price of $22.

    I saw a few of these the other day for around $20, but I didn't pick them up when I noticed they were only 375ml. Is the juice the same as regular Old Forrester?

    The OF website says it's "...limited edition, small batch
    bourbon." It's 100 proof so it may be closer to their
    Signature than the Classic 86.

    It's a nice package with the fancy bottle and glass, and the juice is quite good as well. Too bad I paid $25 for it last year. But for $15, I'd jump on it. The Glencairn glass alone is worth $10!

    I have seen both the JD Repeal Set, and the OF Repeal Set in numerous places. Funny thing though, I have been to a couple places (can't remember where) that had the OF 75th bottles by themselves. They were the 375 mls on the shelf with the rest of the usual suspects. Wonder if they cannibalized the sets and tried to sell the bottles. Or, maybe the glencairn glasses somehow got broken. Either way, I thought it was odd. Joe

    Re: Special 75th Repeal bottles?

    I bought one of the OF sets at Binny's last month for $15, but just last Friday I found a store that had 5 sets on sale for $10.98! And yes, they were complete sets with the glass. I had already brought to the counter $250 worth of other goodies, so I only picked up 2 of them. My gut said to get all five, but I couldn't get myself to spend anymore than I already had. Mistake? Probably.
