    Re: Why don't I like Bulleit?

    Totally off topic here but I hop Robmo is doing well. It must be a tough time in Tokyo these days.

    I am going to have to open my dusty bottle of Old GrandDad 114 that has been sitting on my shelf for a while. The last time I tasted it, I found it a little harsh but I do like the high rye recipe as well as the price. This is a Jim Beam distillate as well, isn't it?
    I'm with you, HRay....I like it as well. Maker's Mark and Bulleit used to be my "go to" pours, although since joining this forum my eyes have been opened to many new and delicious options. I actually haven't had either since January (with the exception being the new Bulleit Rye), but I still think both are very good, uncomplicated bourbons - perfectly fine to be mixed or drink on the rocks...i never really drink either one straight.

    OGD 114 is one of the bourbons that I discovered through SB.com, and I do like it very much. It has become more of a "go to" pour than Maker's or Bulleit - to me it has more depth and flavor and the higher alcohol content helps.

    Thanks for asking! It's tough, you're right.

    I think we're gonna make it through this. The reactors are in the process of being stabilized and while the situation is far from perfect, I have confidence that the worst is behind us. Unfortunately it's raining today and that makes me just nervous enough to want my daughter to stay indoors.

    I believe Bulleit is in the is in the Moet Hennessy Diageo stable rather than the Fortune Brands/Jim Beam stable, although according to Wikipedia it's distilled by Four Roses. All interesting to contemplate.

    OGD is part of the Fortune/JB stable though.
