    Self respecting OGD fans don't swill it, we use a straw.

    I feel bad for whoever purchased the BTEC oats and rice stuff. Though I have not tasted them (and have no intention to), the reviews lead me to believe Buffalo Trace should have dumped those barrels rather than unleashing them on the unsuspecting public at $50/375ml.

    Good call passing on the Old Grand Dad 114 - it's hideous stuff that gives Rebel Yell a run for its money.


    **edit. As MyOldyDram just pointed out, it was the oat version that people thought was nothing short of terrible and which Hansell said "Don't Buy This Whiskey"

    All of the BTEC are grossly overpriced. That being said, I didnt mind the rice so much. Nothing really special, but perfectly drinkable. The giant French oak however I loved. Wouldn't mind seeing a full size offering of something like that one.

    So, I have an entire seller full of "Oats and Rice". When the Zombie apocalypse comes I wil use it to keep them away. No, I'm not kidding.
    Free bottles to the first 25 vistors.

    All that aside, I only wish I could say that those were ones I had passed up. But unfortunatly I can say that. Since my wife isnt a member here I wil blame her.

    I wish I could actually find some BTEC for $50. I am really curious about the French Oak one, but not for $79!

    Thanks for feeling bad for me.

    Actually, the rice wasn't horrible. I think it best likened it to drinking a decent light beer. It wasn't offensive, but there just wasn't anything there.

    The Oat was horrible, it had this pee'd on barn yard straw thing going on. I tried to get through the bottle, then Hansell told me to dump it. Best advice ever.

    Wish I had picked up that bottle of Rock Hill Farms with the ridiculous price tag of $30 on it. Just too many other things in the cart at the time.

    Wish you had, that's a good price on an excellent whisky. Was the RHF on close out?

    No. I think it was the original price sticker and it's just been sitting there all this time. I tossed and turned last night, kicking myself for not buying it, so I guess I'll be on my horse today to go get it. But I did get a Hancock's Reserve for $32 and two bottles of Black Bush Irish whiskey in gift packs for $22 each. Not bad, eh?
