    Re: age of current OGD 114

    Funny, I got my first bottle of OGD 114 a couple days ago and was wondering the same thing. I'm not so sure anyone knows exactly, but I'm intrigued.

    I don`t have my 1987 World Guide to Whisky handy, but something tells me Jackson may have written it is 10-12 years (or was then at any rate). If anyone has their copy to hand, they might check.

    Jacko says that the 114 was, at that time, 10 years old and barrel proof.

    I had a side by side of OGD114 from the 80-is and the currant Beam version in April Gary. It was very much more wood in the older Frankfurt version so I guess the newer is younger. I did personally like he currant better though as I thought the spiciness was to discrete under all the wood in the ND version.

    I prefer the newer bottling, as well Leif. I know the mashbill was supposedly retained without adulteration, post sale to Beam. But, I really have a tough time tasting the similarities between old and new. The current is much more flavorful, IMO. That "slightly burnt corners of the brownie pan" taste. One of my top 5 bourbons today.
