    You asked about a marketing move toward lower proof expressions and this is obviously not the case. Fans of Old Forester who purchase a barrel will get more bourbon and less water than the standard bottling.

    It is not the Old Forester Signature single barrel program, but I suspect that if it was there would still be complaints about it.

    Recon I'll just have to be content with the Signature then.

    Im contacting B-F to see if we can get it bottled at barrel proof. Why the hell not?

    Why indeed, we don't get what we don't ask for.

    OK, you've peaked my curiosity. I'm not ready to sign up for a whole case, but I'm good for a few bottles.

    Re: Old Forrester Single Barrel

    They have the exact same program with Jack Daniel's and the Woodford program is similar, except it has to be a mixture of two barrels.

    Another way to approach this, if you're interested, is to prod your whiskey monger to do it. Not as much personal involvement, but a much lower investment.

    That's about what the barrel costs, so either he meant exclusive of the barrel, or was just talking about the barrel. He also must have meant exclusive of taxes.

    BTW, Forester was originally spelling with two "r"s but was changed to one after Dr. Forrester's death. That was only like 120 years ago. Maybe we should start a "Bring Back the Other 'R'" campaign.
