    Re: Special 75th Repeal bottles?

    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.

    Man I would hate to see what you would do to Ridiel glasses.

    The whiskey selected for the Repeal bottles was not standard OF. "Repeal Bourbon is bottled from a special selection of Old Forester barrels that exhibited a more robust character that is similar to the Old Forester that was bottled during Prohibition," said Chris Morris at the time. It's also 100 proof.

    More here.

    Re: Special 75th Repeal bottles?

    Thanks for the info Chuck. I think I might grab one of them. Could be interesting to try an OF with a "similar" profile to a prohibition bottling. Joe's notes of an acetone smell in the SB.com link kind of scares me off a bit, but if I don't like it then hey, free Glencairn right?

    For $15, I think you'll do okay.

    Unfortunately, I have not seen one of these under $25-30 down here. Even with the glass, will likely pass on it for a 375ml at that cost....can't be that special.
