    Re: mellow corn expanding is distribution area?

    Being BIB, I'm assuming it has spent the proper 2 years in oak barrels? I was also under the assumption that if something was BIB, it had to be in new oak barrels, but I guess I was wrong on that thought. I'll have to see if I can find a bottle in Maryland. As usual, this is not carried in God awful PA "state stores."
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Mellow Corn will be available in more markets as the year unfolds, which is great news for the fans of unique Straight American whiskey types. NY and Illinois are some of the newest additions, more to come.

    Corn whiskey is always the exception. BIB means four years in either used cooperage or new but uncharred cooperage. My guess would be used.

    Does anyone know if there is a difference between Mellow COrn and JW Corn... both HH products or is it the same stuff just packaged differently.

    I have tasted mellow corn, Jw corn, and dixie dew. As far as I know, that is all the aged corn from HH. All 3 taste different. To me the boldest of the 3 is Dixie Dew. As far as I know, it is only available in Alabama abc stores. Mellow Corn, is just that, mellow. Jw corn almost tastes like young scotch to me. Only place I know of with jw corn is Virginia. The Alabama thing must be like evan williams was for years, the age statement for evan, was 6 yeas old. Must be a control state thing. Same thng with JW.

    There is one store in Milwaukee that carries them all, but only one store. He forces the local HH distributor to bring them in for him.

    If I'm not mistaken they are making Platte Valley now, too. Besides Georgia Moon it's the only one I see regularly here. Mine's 3 years old.

    I'm on my way to pick up a bottle today. Mellow Corn is now readily available here in Chicagoland, though I wish Dixie Dew was around for comparison purposes.

    I thought Platte Valley was a distillery in MO. Did they sell out to HH?
    There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.
