    Another Age Statement Bites the Dust (And More Recent COLA Findings)

    Sorta don't like this. Classing it up to look better next to the other less well priced expressions. Hope I'm an alarmist.

    I'd say you're a realist.

    Interesting this was a topic here a couple years ago. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...p/t-15399.html Foreshadowing, maybe?

    If ORVW gets rid of the barrel bottle that would be unfortunate. It has been a trademark of the Van Winkle family and Stitzel Weller brands. kind of loosing a little bit of history, I think...


    Second thought, I guess it matters more what's in the bottle than the bottle itself.

    I am sad to see the original label that they have used for 40 years get changed but I am sometimes slow to accept change. That's a pretty long run for a label without significant alteration and I don't think there are a whole lot of other examples.

    The loss of the barrel bottle is harder to see. I was sad to see BT abandon it for the Weller line. Those bottles with their paper labels have always had a special place with me. I can't argue that the VW wine bottle style presentation is top notch though. It is and always has been. I will definitely miss the old barrel bottle though. At least they won't be using the new "Weller Style" bottle. Those are not very appealing to me.

    I've noticed Rebel Yell is no longer using that bottle anymore either. I always was curious how they ended up with that bottle. That, and why the BHC IW Harper used that bottle while the VSOF did not. I guess I won't be adding any more new bottles to my barrel bottle collection.

    I tried the Lairds 7.5 year apple brandy today bottled in the ORVW barrel bottle. I had to stop myself from liking the brandy just because it was in hat bottle which i have so much affinity for.

    That's a good looking product. Great bottle and label. I actually do like the brandy too, however.

    James Pepper 15 year barrel proof rye:

    I also noticed Michter's re-applied for the 10 year single barrel rye on 2/21. I didn't notice anything different about it. I did just glance though. I'm guessing if they start bottling this again it won't be 18-20 years old.

    Is the proof on that rye correct, or just a placeholder?
