    I personally like the Sam Houston 10 year better than the 1783 10 year. I picked up several bottles of SH10 for around $20 on clearance when the brand was re-released in the tall bottle (nasty stuff). But, I don't think it is worth much more than $20 or so. At $40-45, there are much better bourbons to be had.

    If it is the tall bottle, then I don't think it is even produced by the same company. The brand changed hands a couple of years ago I think.

    I liked the 10 yr, too. My dad really liked it, so I would pick up as many as I could find for him before his passing. It was one of the whackiest priced bourbons that I have ever seen, however. The pricing was anywhere from $13 to mid $40's depending on location. Not specials or sales or anything like that. Just standard pricing.

    The brand was sold but part of the deal was the sellers be hired to continue building the brand so the same guys are still in charge.

    Makes you wonder what the wholesale was Joe, presuming the $13.00 bottles were being sold at a profit.

    I also enjoyed the TRUE 10yr. I have had two and got them for around 30$. I do stay clear of the non age stated one though. I would pull the trigger if I were to find another 10 year. For me I could say the same for an age stated Johnny Drum 12 or Pure Kentucky XO true 10 year vs. there non age stated releases.

    I'm in favor of 10 year old Bourbon from any source I just refuse to pay more than it's worth.
