    Back in the Stitzel-Weller days, they called that the barrel bottle. Only Stitzel-Weller used it and they used it for everything. When I first started to buy Old Fitz Prime (the 80 proof gold label) it was in that bottle. Everybody seems to be dropping it. Not sure why, although retailers don't like wide bottles, the new roundy Weller and VOB bottles aren't that much narrower, or are they? Could be an illusion. Retailers will tolerate non-standard bottles for super-premiums, but really don't like them for standard pours. That tends only to be an issue if you're trying to expand distribution.

    I'm not sure. The back label does say something about the low barrel proof which makes me wonder.

    update:

    the back label says: "Bottled at a surprisingly low barrel proof and not chill filtered."

    OK, not COLA, and not straight whiskey, but an interesting and probably delicious release forthcoming from High West:

    I have seen some hints that the bitter liqueur involved will be Tempus Fugit's Gran Classico!

    "Master Distillers' Unity"
    A bonded bourbon forthcoming from Heaven Hill:

    Interesting that "distillers'" is plural. Maybe a vatting of the multiple generations of Beams?

    Read somewhere it was something like all distillers united behind Parker and ALS.

    Any new BIB is a positive.

    I may have missed something, I see 100 proof, but I don't see bonded or BIB

    I'll second Phil's comment. Class Type 101 is straight bourbon, and there is nothing on the label that indicates it's a BIB.

    Interesting . . . makes you wonder.

    What if . . . Master Distillers from several distilleries picked some great barrels (their donation to their cause?) and either gave or sold them to HH to mingle into this creation?

    A bourbon collab mingled by Parker? Doubt it's anything that interesting, but how sweet would that be?
