    I'm very happy to see all of the support rallying behind Parker and the ALS cause. But, I'm also confused about the statements we've heard about the next release of PHC being less than barrel proof. Doesn't that run counter to the established guidelines for these releases? Are they trying to make this more available? Either way I will likely buy a bottle to support the cause, but will be disappointed if it's not barrel proof.

    Well, from the article it sounds like it might be available for tasting at whiskey fest New York. I just might have to go.

    "Established guidelines"? Do tell.

    I'm fairly certain the 2nd and 3rd are not barrel proof.

    It'd be nice if they disclosed the components of the blend; imagine the fun trying to re-create it off of your own bottles.

    I was just asking. Forgot that those two weren't barrel-proof. And I'm still looking forward to its release.

    I understand the commitment that Heaven Hill has made by donating a portion of the proceeds from the PHC release. However, I am just curious why the Unity blend will not be made available to the public. I understand that the two bottles that will be made available will probably command a lot of money at the auction but you would think that wider distribution (even at a premium price) would be successful in raising more money and awareness. I wonder if there are legal issues that prevent a wider release?

    The 5th, the Cognac finish, was not barrel proof either at 100 proof I believe. This does equal the lowest proof of the series at 96 proof like the 27 year old. You can understand why that one might be lower to stretch it a bit farther!

    Would have been nice if this new one was released at perhaps at least 100 proof although in the end not sure how much difference it would make.

    Of course the description of the release indicated it had all of Parker's preferences for a great bourbon. I would assume the proof is his choice as well. IIRC from interviews and such it seems many of the Master Distillers prefer tasting/drinking at lower proof even though many on here prefer the opposite.

    The PHC proofs have been all over the place they have not all been barrel proofs.

    Looks like Old Grand Dad will be getting new labels on the 80 and 100 proof products:

    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
