    Mid 90's OGD 86 similar to today's whiskey?

    The only current OGD I am familiar with is the 114. Recently grabbed a half dozen OGD 86 from 1996. I know it's beam juice just as it is today. For those of you that know, does this stuff taste the same as the whiskey that sits on the shelf today? If so count me in cause this is very tasty. And I usually avoid anything that's not closer to 100 proof.

    Actually any help in identifying the vintage of beam OGD would be welcome. I just noticed one of my 750's has a laser code. 14030276. Not sure if it has any significance.

    I had a great dusty hunt the other day and in addition to OC 10 yr 86 (not 101) I grabbed some OGD 86 and a BIB. Neither have UPC so I am hopeful I got something a little different, or at least I will tell my self that.

    But never having tasted any OGD from any eras, I am going to have to depend on you guys to tell me.

    more than likely, mid 90s beam OT would probably taste better than the current version. Beam installed a fitler type deal on their stills to reduce ec levels I am told in about 1990. It removes some taste.

    What's "ec", Tom?

    Re: Mid 90's OGD 86 similar to today's whiskey?

    The only thing I can think of is electrical conductivity, a function of (total) dissolved solids (TDS) in water. But this is unlikely, given that the filter is attached to the still, and distillates are free of solids. Ester congeners perhaps?

    Tom, you've got this chemist curious. Can you elaborate on "ec"?
