    Sounds like Black Ridge and Jeffers Creek may be new incarnations of VOB 90 & 80.

    The label for the 6th ed. Parker's Heritage Collection is out. Looks like we'll have a blend of approximately 11 year old rye and wheat recipe bourbon bottled at barrel proof.

    Nice catch! I've been curious what they were going to do this year. I would not have guessed this. Sounds interesting.

    This sounds pretty cool. Nice proof with 10+ years of age. The spice of a rye with the creamy smoothness of a wheater, sweet!

    Initially, I'm disappointed, just like I was when I learned of the 2011 PHC. It just sounds like another gimmick. All I need is bourbon to blow my socks off, why are you seemingly stretching to give me these exotic vattings/finishings?? That said, I loved the 2011 and every PHC I've had, for that matter, so count me in when it hits the shelves.

    I had the same thoughts - I've only tried one PHC (believe it was the 4th edition, 10 yr wheated in 2010) and loved it - but when I read "cognac-finished", I get a bit nauseous. Personally not a cognac fan, and my wife picked up a bottle of Crown Royal Cask 16 which was cognac-finished - and I thought it was worse than regular Crown (while 3x+ the price!) I don't mean to question Parker, but just doesn't sound like something that will be up my alley - and certainly not at a premium.

    Can we start calling the 6th edition the Gillmanized PHC?

    Not bourbon but according to Dramming:

    Macallan Revamps Basic Range To NAS

    "Beginning this autumn in the UK market, the new 1824 Series
    will be introduced, three no-age-statement 100% sherry cask
    expressions named after their respective colours: Gold, Sienna
    and Ruby. They will replace the 10 to 15 year old Sherry Oak
    and Fine Oak expressions. The older expressions like the flagship
    18 yo Sherry Oak will supposedly remain on the shelves.

    What does this mean? Well, the most important aspect definitely
    is the complete removal of age statement bottlings from the lower
    end of the product range which is a thing unheard of in the Scotch
    single malt market. Many distilleries have affordable NAS bottles in
    their range, but there is always at least one entry level expression
    with an age statement, the bread and butter bottle, so to speak."
