    Re: Jack's New Look.

    I really like the new label. It's fresh and simple. It's still just as eye catching and iconic as the previous label. Now the bottle... I'm not so sure about that. I like the old bottle with the rounded edges.

    Cluttered or not, I like the old label better. I like the rounded shoulders of the old bottle better, too.

    Looks like a classic 1+1+1=5 sitation. How do you even begin to dream these combinations up Gary?

    I think I like the new label, but not the new bottle.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Do we have a source for the warehouse location claim other than tour guides? I'm not saying tour guides spread misinformation, but, well, I guess I am.

    Re: Jack's New Look.

    Reid, thanks: the sum truly is more than its parts. Here's my logic. I'm sitting in a hotel room in St. Augustine. I've got a half-pint of JD Green Label, some Early Times bourbon, and the Jeremiah Weed Blended Bourbon. The JD is a little corn/woody; the Early Times ditto but with more traditional bourbon character; and the Weed has that tea flavor overlay on a fairly mild bourbon/GNS base. So I figure the slight tea sweetness will meld the straight whiskeys in all of these, plus the straights just taste better when their elemental attributes are combined.

    It so happens that's all I had in the room, but still I used a certain logic or such as it is.

    The better half comes back in the evening and I serve it to her. "This is really good, what is it"? Earlier, she had the JD Green and Early Times on their own: no complaints, but no comments either. So I figured it was excellent, on this basis and my own tasting of course.

    Gary

    Jimmy Bedford, late JD master distiller, told me the same thing.
