    Is it, though? I'm seeing OGD 114 in stores where it's never been before. I wonder if they're focusing more attention on that label, and seeing increased sales. The BiB is, I believe, the best-selling BiB around, so I hope that sticks around because I'm fond of it, too.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Basil Hayden is selling very well, although I can't figure out why. There may be pressure on OGD from that direction. But with the recent dropping of the age statement from BH, now there really is no difference between OGD and BH on paper. The big money grab is Basil Hayden.

    Perhaps Beam is planning to launch an Old Grand Dad Family in the way they are developing Knob Creek. A rye with the ND yeast would be nice.

    Re: OGD proof change?

    Dang, and this was my favorite 86 proof whiskey. I'm more upset about this than that Maker's Mark crap.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Are you sure?
    It seems to me it's always been 80, 100 & 114 proof.

    During the recent MM kerfluffle, the Washington Post mentioned that BH sales increased 35% in 2012. Sure that's from a relatively small base but a huge jump even considering bourbon sales overall increased 15%.

    That kind of increase and the dropping of the BH AS may indicate a shortage of OGD distillate.

    Re: OGD proof change?

    I whined on Twitter and got an offer from @jimbeamofficial to chat about OGD. I will report back.
