    What a deal! Same basic proof but a buck more than D12, with no aging. Gee, how many can I get?


    Soon, these distilleries are just gonna sell you a bottle with some grain and yeast in it. just add water, heat, and wait!

    Please do not give BT or WT any ideas! They are destructive enough on their own.

    Wonder if all this unaged whiskey is being pushed to keep up with demand for whiskey aged or not?

    just jumping on the bandwagon.

    I dont care if someone wants to sell a white unaged product........but if you are going to skip half of the steps of making something, don't think you can charge me MORE for that product

    91 proof may be 'acceptable' by my tastes, but doesnt make my #&$^ hard.........

    Oh dear . . . you do have a point though, it's incongruous why new made whisky should cost more than one that has been aged for 5-8 years.

    Arguably it costs more to make today than 7-8 years ago, but I'm still disinclined to pay more for less.
