    If you could improve a current bourbon....

    If you could take a bourbon brand currently on the market and improve on it, what would you do?

    Here are my suggestions:

    Cabin Still 6yo 86 proof
    Old Overholt BIB
    Old Grand Dad single barrel BIB
    Bernheim Wheat Whiskey 10yo
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: If you could improve a current bourbon....

    Great question!!

    I would like to see Weller 12 @ 107 or a barrel strength Rittenhouse @ 10 years.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Re: If you could improve a current bourbon....

    I'd love to see the Michter's line expanded to include some more price-conscious selections. But then again, I'm biased towards anything that says Michter's!

    Best thing you can do to improve any bourbon is to cut the price in half.
