    definitely I was just starting a conversation. I sure don't expect anyone to go by just what I think.

    +1. OWA one of the last mainstay whiskey's I have not tried, in large part because it usually over $25. When there are other good options for cheap, I am going to be skeptical of that stuff from the beginning.

    Comments like these need to be repeated over and over. Mentioning price disparities is tedious, but when those prices have a huge influence on our perception of quality, we need to take them into account when we share opinions. For example, I think Four Roses Yellow is delicious and consistently underrated, but I can get it for around $13 around here for some reason. That definitely affects my opinion of it in a way that somebody who pays $22 cannot not understand - unless I mention it.

    Re: Current OWA

    I have never been too surprised by any bottle of OWA. This includes the 7 year old, current stuff, and single barrel selections. The fact that it has disappeared from stores at times has caused me to bunker a few extras. If I was to open one now. it may have been purchased a year or two ago. Like many, I was unhappy to see the age statement go. So far, I think the current stuff is good.

    my bottle of OWA NAS isn't as good as my OWA 7yr age stated. The age stated bottle is from 2007 though.

    I've had my share of OWA over the years, my favorite BT produced iterations are the old label ones. Can still find these all over Dallas, and it's good bourbon for sure.
