    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    I'm also in agreement on the older Ten High Ten. Not bad at all IMHO.

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Not sure about ten high ten, but the dusty Ten High half pint I picked up not long ago was somewhere between barely drinkable and just OK. Straight, no GNS, marked as a Hiram Walker product, from around '82. It's actually a barton product I think, which is a decent sign for me, I just prefer Tom Moore a bit more.

    I see half gallons on the bottom shelf all the time here, also straight, but I'll have to check now.

    I like that tax stripped ten high. It has a nice sweetness to it. Much better in my opinion than some premium stuff made today. Next time you see some, if you do not want it, send it my way.

    I didn't realize that Ten High came in normal and 10 year versions back in the '80s. I need to take a closer look at what they are around here. I didn't see any with a tin, for sure.

    I think the Ten High Ten came out for a few years, then was dropped to the normal Ten High. There are some pics on here somewhere I've seen of the 10H10.

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Ten High Ten is a dusty. It hasn't been available for years.

    Unless something has changed very recently, Sazerac makes Ten High in two versions, a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and a Bourbon Blend. Distributors can choose, but they can't have both, so a given state should have one or the other, but not both.

    A blended bourbon, aka bourbon-a blend, is at least 51 percent straight bourbon on a proof gallon basis. The rest can be and usually is GNS. A blended whiskey can be as little as 20 percent straight whiskey on a proof gallon basis and the rest can be and usually is GNS.

    Re: Ten High Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    I think Iowa still gets the straight bourbon as it was the best selling bourbon in the state for years (hangs head).
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Hey, at least it's unique from JBW, I'm sure the best selling bourbon in every state is young and nondescript.

    The KSBW Ten High is a perfectly respectable whiskey and a very good value.
