As a newbie, I notice a lot of posts that allude to the fact that many bourbon brands were better decades ago. Just a few examples that come to mind are:
- OGD bottled by ND is better
- Make sure you get the PVW with the SW juice
- Jim Beam White Label was better in the 70s
What's causing this? Are they changing the formulas? Aging less? Cutting corners in distillation?
