    Possible price hike for OGD 114 fans?

    I dunno, but at one of the online shops where I buy, OGD 114 in the old bottle that we all know and love costs about $22 (at the current exchange rate). Also at the same shop, OGD 114 in a new bottle costs about $33. Both are in stock now.

    Nice bottle ....

    oh, and you get a box

    Is this a taste of the future?

    I like the bottle re-design. It definitely stands out more than the old design.

    Isn't that just the old bottle design?

    I meant the old-school ND design and label that I've seen in better bunkers than mine. It looks very similar to that one.

    Yep, I believe Beam deleted the ND medal strap with their first redesign. I even suspect if the photo is of the short-lived 500ml version. The proportions look just a bit different. I'll see if I can photograph some different version together.

    I agree with Josh, that this looks like Old School OGD 114 -- AND the stuff I buy currently comes in a box as well, but I get it for $17.99.

    Re: Possible price hike for OGD 114 fans?

    Edo,

    Did you find this on an online store based there in Japan? In the UK? Where?

    Something that may be going on with OGD or any brand outside the U.S. is usually not an indicator of what is or will be going on inside the U.S. That looks like the old packaging, which Beam simplified. I can't imagine why they'd go back to it.

    On the other hand, since Beam has recently given Old Crow some love, they may very well make some changes to the OGD line next. There, though, the emphasis would seem to be on Basil Hayden. Considering that it costs more than OGD 114 and has a lot more water in it, I'm pretty sure they'd rather use the whiskey in BH than sell more of it at 114, even with a slight price increase.
