    Re: The Parker Beam promise of hope

    News is starting to barrel roll in regarding the Master Distillers Special Blend and Parkers Heritage 7th Edition 'Promise of Hope'. We now have a label for the bottle, with a special label on the back!

    The NC ABC now has this listed on their price list: $89.95.

    I think I might just donate $20 and skip the $69.95, 10 year old, 96 proof whiskey.

    You indirectly brought up a good point. I love the fact that HH is donating $20 for every bottle, but if you consider how spirits are sold, the consumer cost is way higher than it should be. If HH is marking up their initial price by $20 so they can donate "100%" of the $20, what that does is add $20 to the base price of the bottle before it makes it through multiple layers of middlemen who are all marking it up the normal 30-50%, plus the state taxes added along the way. All that means is that the spirits distributors and retailers (and government) are making a lot of money on the backs of the consumer so HH can absorb the $20 per bottle donation to ALS.

    I would much rather donate $20 and not buy overpriced bourbon.

    Update: $20 donation made.

    Just remember... The proof on the TTB label is a write-in so it could be conceivably higher proof than pictured.

    Don't think so; it's a write-in for style but the back label says they let Parker pick the proof and age he wanted. I bet it will be good stuff, but it won't be high proof.
