    Re: Bernheim Original

    The North Carolina ABC stores list Bernheim Original for $24.95. I have found it in a few of the stores, but not many.

    My son-in-law and I each bought a bottle when we were visiting Louisville about 18 months ago. He liked it more than I did, but it certainly is not the worst $25 that I have ever spent.

    Re: Bernheim Original

    I just had a dram of Bernheim Wheat after a dram of Rebel Reserve, which I thought would be interesting, since they are both distilled by Heaven Hill (the Rebel Reserve is basically Old Fitzgerald juice sold to Luxco for separate aging).

    I don't know if my constant sipping of Scotch has ruined my palate for American whiskeys, but I could not taste a huge difference between the two. I keep hearing how the Bernheim is supposed to be a very sweet whiskey, but, to me, it tasted quite spicy and bourbon-y.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Re: Bernheim Original

    I was on Spec's (large Houston retailer) website and they had Bernheim listed for $24.58 cash price. Stopped by store today and it was on shelf for $37.xx. I mentioned the difference and the buyer was called - shelf was remarked to match web site. My guess is the price decrease is just now hitting Houston and this will be permanent price.

    I bought a Bernheim Wheat, Rittenhouse Rye 100, and EC 12 - out the door at $76.51 less the $15 rebate Ed posted. Not a bad deal.

    Yeah, you are listening to people making faulty assumptions.

    It has less corn than every bourbon on the market and corn makes a bourbon sweet, not the wheat. I find it to be biscuity with layers of spice and not really sweet at all.

    Re: Bernheim Original

    "biscuity" is something that I find in this as well. Love having this on hand.

    For some reason CT always has it priced close to $50. I won't buy it at that price, especially when I can order it online for under $30.

    Re: Bernheim Original

    Heaven Hill has definitely dropped its prices consistent with a $30 price point, so if Connecticut is maintaining the higher retail price they're ripping you off even more than usual. (Well, not you, since you won't pay it.)

    Re: Bernheim Original

    Time to check my local again to see if they are following the new pricing. Last time I looked Bernheim was still in the $40s.

    Re: Bernheim Original

    I spoke to a Bernheim rep at a tasting last April and he mentioned the price would be dropping but I haven't seen that happen around Chicago yet.
