    Re: No More ORVW 10yr 90???

    Kinda hard to grieve over something you've never seen, let alone will ever have the chance to purchase in this piece of sh*t control state called Ohio.

    I hope the loss of the 90 drastically improves the release numbers of the 107,which it should I see the 90 setting for months after release on shelves unlike the 107.I personally feel the 17 point drop in proof destroys the profile and mouth feel,that being said this can only be a move forward in the right direction.

    The biggest surprise to me about the ORVW90 is that we're not yet at 10 pages of posts.

    It's my husband's favorite whiskey. Does anyone know when the Old Rip Van Winkles comes out and where I can get some?

    All I have to say about this:

    Wild Turkey should take some ideas from the Van Winkles and instead of watering down the 101 Rye to 81, kill the 81 and just stick with the 101 proof!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: No More ORVW 10yr 90???

    So sarcastic questions aside, why did this distillery (or any any others for that matter) have the exact same blend divided up into two products? Can understand the flavour profile would differ when neat, but was it marketing or tradition?

    Re: No More ORVW 10yr 90???

    As Paul pointed out upthread, it's the same deal with WSR and OWA. A lot of it probably has to do with the bar/restaurant market which typically shies away from higher proofs in their inventories. beyond that is personal preference. A lot of people (not us, so much) prefer to drink lower proof whiskey and can't see the wisdom of adding their own water to taste. A clear case of the adage "then again, some folks'll."
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
