    Think of it as Old Grand Dad Cask Strength Single Barrel. I'm not trying to justify price.

    OGD single barrel? I wasn't aware that existed.

    I'll clarify and say that it is reminiscent of early 80's glut OGD114 and not what is currently available. I would certainly pay a small premium for some of the very early bottlings of OGD114. For the record, the older OGD's are better and not quite as hot. This Willett is in the ball park (albeit more expensive than both the 80's and current pricing on that).

    Sorry, Walker. I posted some sarcasm. I've edited that post.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    I'm having some PVW23 that's been sitting in my cabinet for 3 or 4 years. It's an older "A" bottle with the wax top. I think I paid $150 for it. I don't remember the nose being this pleasant. My real take away from this one is that it would be a lot better at a higher proof. I guess I could go that route but won't tonight. This is a very good whiskey, but not worth $250 that it now costs in my opinion no matter what distillery it came from.

    Relaxing after work with some FR '09 Mariage. This, kids, is what bourbon is all about. Delicious ...

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    Pardon me Eric, I'm not a provocateur, just an aficionado who brings some experience to the table. I had my first drink of Old Grand Dad BIB in June, 1965, and my most recent one, well, a few minutes ago. Between those pours there have been a lot of bottles of good Bourbons, single malts, single barrels, limited editions, etc., and about a half century later I'm still alive to tell the tale. I was there when Old Fitzgerald was the real deal but if I were given a pour today of pre 1960 distilled Old Grand Dad and one of recent make in a blind tasting I'm pretty sure I could identify the older expression on scent but doubt I could tell the difference on taste alone with 100 per cent accuracy.

    Pardon me Squire, I'm just a less experienced bourbon geek that posted an opinion. No where above did I challenge yours.

    In honesty I didn't understand why you felt the need to dissaprove of a local barrel purchase from a store that was 1,200 miles away. With respect to that, I posted some sarcasm. To my credit, I immediately cleaned that up. Sadly, I did not do so quickly enough.

    I hope that there are no hard feelings.

    To Brad: I see what you are saying about the ND influence though this reminds me of Beam. I guess that I'm in the very small minority that thinks that is a good thing.

    Had some damn fine Weller 12 this evening. I'm glad I "bunkered" another bottle of this fine juice.
