    I experience the same phenomenon with Barton products. I thought it might have just been random but after repeating my "study" many times, results stay the same. It's a shame, I really like VOB.

    Straight of of the man mans mouth at Red Star, which is now Fermentis. Red star whiskey yeast is an old Schenley strain. Which used to own BT. All distilleries using Red Star all use the same strain.

    I think I have identified the problem:

    Really like VOB = heavy pours = headache

    The breakneck pace of the Pappy 'evolution' + the frantic onrush to hunt down BTAC, coupled with price increases & allocation, should result in somewhat of a boon to good quality standbys such as VOB, OGD & others. Of course, when the $$ all leads back to Sazerac or Beam, I guess said companies cannot be concerned with losing customers for the high end stuff since it is allegedly in short supply as it is.

    Recently, I brought home a VOB 100 after having ignored it for many a year. It is much better than I remember and at least for me, was a natural place to turn after finding nothing but rising prices on everything else that I would have normally considered. All in all, if I'm 'confined' to Barton, all is well.

    Polishes the whisky, eh? Guess that's a nice way of saying it gets the hog tracks out.

    Sometimes you need a few hawg tracks.
