    Re: OGD proof change?

    I went to my favorite store today, and the "regular" OGD handle they had was 86 proof, but the 750s were 80 proof.

    So I'm taking a wild guess here by saying you bought the 86.

    Re: OGD proof change?

    Actually, I didn't; I've never had OGD 86, and I don't want to get hooked on something I can't get anymore. BUT, if there's another member who has need of it (I think I remember someone's wife likes it quite a bit), I'd be more than willing to help out.

    I'd pick it up anyway if the price is good. I haven't had any particular reason to buy the 86 but since it's going out the door . . .

    I know I speak for everyone when I say that basil Hayden is the only bunker able bourbon on the shelves today

    I concur! And let me add any Turkey bottled at 81pr, Old Crow Reserve, and anything Michter's, since they're the first American maker of anything.

    Re: OGD proof change?

    Whoever it is didn't call me yesterday like she or he said, but I do currently have a voicemail on my phone from someone with a 312 area code that was left at dinner time. Think I'm gonna let it sit there for a while.

    Next time I see a friend buy BH I am going to laugh now. Both NAS, 80 proof and same juice? Beam is passing a fast one on the uninformed. This has left me concered for my beloved BIB. I am gonna have to stock up me thinks.

    Re: OGD proof change?

    The statement says what the statement says, but I think the biggest reason was price and profitability. Beam, and perhaps others, seem to have come to the conclusion that for any bourbon in the popular price segment or below, having a proof above 80 is just leaving money on the table.
