    Re: The Parker Beam promise of hope

    Bought one today. 96 proof. A bit expensive, but for a good cause.

    I just picked another one up this weekend. I now have a couple in reserve which is good because they tend to go fast once opened.

    It is a very nice bourbon and worth the price IMHO. I like the blended mashbill Parker's best, even more than the 27, but that is a very good lower proof bourbon. Better than Larcenry, better than Eagle, even a bit better than Evan Williams Single Barrel (2002 or 2003). But the point is you are buying that to honor the Parker/HH name and gesture. If folks want to donate rather than buy, that is certainly a good gesture as well.

    Now the 4R 125th, well, that stuff is magic and IMHO several steps above the Parker Hope bourbon. You know that in every step, nose, color and most importantly taste.

    I'd rather donate $20 bucks and save the rest for a bottle of EWSB, EC12, and FRSB. I won't even donate the $20 dollars because I audit alot of non-profits and I know where alot of the money goes...

    Out of 4 Parker's I've been luck enough to sample (27 year, Wheated, Blended Mashbill were the others), Promise of Hope is my favorite. Stumbled across two bottles. Or was it after two bottles?

    Just found another one in the Minneapolis area for $89. They were also having a sale on some bourbons so I picked up a bottle of Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare 10 y/o store barrel selections.

    Re: The Parker Beam promise of hope

    How is it that Promise of Hope has managed to stay on the shelves for a whole year when every other bourbon stamped "limited" sells out in minutes? I tried it over the weekend and was totally blown away. A 10 year single barrel doesn't sound sexy, but this one approaches perfection. It nails every element of the traditional bourbon profile at a perfect proof. It reminds me of Pappy in a way, elegant in its sublime execution of simplicity. I immediately went looking for a bottle and was able to locate one. How that's possible, I have no idea. People chased Old Blowhard, Jefferson's Ocean and Stagg Jr. into obscurity, but somehow it took me just a phone call or two to locate Promise of Hope. A tremendous oversight on the part of whiskey-loving consumers everywhere; then again, it's nice not to see a quality release go the way of the Wooly Mammoth for once.

    Re: The Parker Beam promise of hope

    I COMPLETELY agree with you, bicktrav. Even when I didn't know much about bourbon, I couldn't ignore the taste of this one. One of my favorite bottles.

    Finished my bottle today. I think I know where to get another.
