    Old HH Pricing question

    Can someone tell me why the "old style 90" costs 3$ more than the "old style 100"?

    Is it different/the same?

    Also- TW samuels 100 prf white label- thoughts?

    The 90 proof is a liter, the 100 proof is a 750.

    If they are both 6 years old, which is what the specs say on the site, they are probably the same whiskey at different proofs.

    Right above those two on the page is the Old Heaven Hill BIB gold label. At $8.99/750ML, it's so good and so cheap I buy it by the case. I've gotten several people hooked on the stuff. I think it's the ULTIMATE pour for the money.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Ethan, I'd love your tasting notes on OHHBIB.

    Re: Old HH Pricing question

    I'll have to sit and sip on a glass and write a review some evening soon. What I can tell you is that it has a lot in common with OGB BIB. It's dry and peppery but younger and maybe a bit more corn. While Evan Williams is subdued and very mellow, this is more in-your-face like Fighting Cock but it's not too harsh either since it is still charcoal filtered. It's probably the same or a similar mashbill to the Heaven Hill Old Style. In PA, we can get the HH Old Style in 80 proof liter bottles for $9 and there is certainly a resemblance between the OHH BIB and HHOS 80pf. I'll revisit them both and take down some notes for you.

    TW Samuels 100 proof is one of several bonded brands HH has. When I tried it, I thought it reminded me a lot of the four year old Heaven Hill brand label bonded. Dant is also similar.

    Re: Old HH Pricing question

    I wish I could get my hands on Dant, Samuels, and the other HH bonded products- I am really anxious to try Mellow Corn too.

    Re: Old HH Pricing question

    I don't know if it was "glut" whiskey that was older than four years, or had something to do with the infamous fire. The Dant of a few years ago was very tastey. The last few I tried were OK, but not better than the HH four year old.

    HH bottles several bib's under different lables as stated above. All are outstanding in my book, and all seem to have their own profile. My favorite is J.W. Dant. It has a certain bready taste that appeals to me.

    That's what I'm talking about. The nice thing about bonds is the DSP # is on the label. Over the years I have seen Dant labels with at least three different numbers (some are Bardstown, others Louisville). I wish I had saved an empty from the HH bottling I really liked. The pre HH Dant is supposed to be REALLY good, but good luck finding any of that.
    I don't want people to think that I believe the old "things were allways better in the past" cliche. There are many excellent new releases. It's just that one reason I got interested in bourbon was that early on; I found some real gems in the $10-$15 range (mostly from HH).
