    Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Visited a liquor monger in WV today, and they had Ten High Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in 750 mL. It didn't have the "a blend" moniker on the label. Has Sazerac started shipping a straight bourbon expression of High Ten again?

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Looks that way: http://www.bartonbrands.com/tenhigh.html. I bought a bottle of Ten High right before it became a blend and I don't remember much except that it was thin and finishing the bottle was a chore. I wonder how good the juice in the new KSBW version is? In any case it's nice to see that they have sufficient stocks to make it a bourbon again, and it's nice to see someone make a brand better instead of worse.

    This is one of two Barton expressions available in Utah. I'll pay attention and when it switches to a bourbon again, I'll give it a try. It's cheap, why not?

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Last time I checked, not so great. It's pretty much the cheapest KSBW money can buy, and while it's not absolutely undrinkable straight, I can't imagine doing anything with it other than putting it in Coke.

    I am pretty sure nothing has changed. From what I understand, they kept it straight in some states. Control states, where it is hard to change stuff up. I always liked it for an everyday bourbon.

    The only non-blended TH that I've ever seen around here is the older bottles of Ten High Ten which are definitely worth your while if you ever come across one.

    So many of those tax stripped ones in DC. Sku didn't like it, so I've just passed them up, but if you say differently, I guess I might as well try it out.

    I don't think it was ever a blend in SC.

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    PA has the blend stuff. What gets me is- How do they call it a bourbon whiskey if it contains GNS??? Would it not be a blended whiskey and not a bourbon whiskey???
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    It's a blend here too, if they only kept the KSBW version in sime control states it seems that it wasn't so in PA or UT. I don't think there's anything stopping them from using "blended bourbon" because that term is just not defined legally. They don't use the word "straight" and that's enough.

    I wouldn't expect some kickass hidden gem but for under $20 you'd be picking up a thoroughly decent whiskey. And keep in mind that Ten High Ten was one of the earlier attempts at marketing a "premium" whiskey, complete with the fancy tin packaging and cool contoured bottle. Have the ones you've seen come in the tin?
