    Re: OGD proof change?

    I don't think this is worth fussing over, as one of their stated reasons for doing this is to avoid shortage of BiB (which is a superior product in the first place)

    Re: OGD proof change?

    I agree with Squire: lowering the proof of the regular OGD to ensure the supply of BIB and 114 is the least of all possible evils.
    What would be really nice is if they would bring the proof back up to 86 when the supply problems go away, but I kinda don't see that happening.

    I found a local, very deep source for OGD114 @ $17.99 a fifth . . . . don't think I'll be drinkin' much of the 80 or 86 pf now.

    Squire - "Save the BIB! Save the BIB! Let me hear 'ya guys, Save the BIB!"

    Yeah, I'll be cheerin' that when we get the BIB or 114 here. In the meanwhile, we have fading stocks of 86 being replaced with 80. I won't buy the 3yo OO and I won't buy the OGD80 - gotta put the line somewhere (I am buying Old Crow Reserve @ $11/handle for export, tho).

    Believe me, I realize how much I DON'T know about whiskey, but I know what I like. OGD provided great whiskey at a low price point--perfect for a new guy learning about what makes a great pour. Now they provide decent whiskey at best. Same price, lesser value. Maybe OK for those who can buy off the top shelf, but for those of us who still need to shop for a bargain, OGD filled a niche. I mean NO disrespect with these opinions, as I have worlds to learn about bourbon and my palate. I DO appreciate the folks who are willing to share their years of experience with those of us who are still learning. Keep that in mind.

    As long as they don't touch the bonded, I'm ok.
