Next time, going to dilute the 10 star to 86, as I think those 4 little proof points are giving it an unfair advantage On the nose, I get more oak from the 10 yr as one might expect, but not as much caramel as I do in the 10 star. The taste is quite similar as well, but I find the 10 star to have just a bit more "bite", which I like. Adding a couple drops of water to each separates the men from the boys, but again - not fairly. The 10 yr doesn't take even a few drops well, and is diluted and thin, where the 10 star is just as nice, maybe even a bit better.
    I'm with you in preferring 10 Star over 10yr, especially in regards to dilution.

    under $50 would be reasonable to me and should be reasonable to BF as well. if they can sell OFS at 100 proof for $25-30 (its been a while, and ive only bought it once, what is the price currently?), why the hell couldnt they sell it at 120 proof for $40-50?

    currently, the best bang for the buck 120+ proofer, to me at least, is KC120. its one of my favorites, and they sell it at $35-40 here. In my mind, its priced right. If HH wanted to put out enough ECBP to meet demand (you knew id end up here, didnt you?), they could.....and if supply went up to demand levels, flippers couldnt make money on it, and it would sell at the $40 HH intended it to be priced at.

    so, how much ARE you gonna sell me one for next weekend, joe?

    OCPR SS. Been sitting on this one for a year or so, after being thoroughly unimpressed. I'm not sure what happened, but it is incredible now.

    Started with a few pours 1:1 blend of ECBP:EC12. Just a shot of each so not a lot. Followed by a pour of my new Forgiven blend - 70 percent OGD 114 and 30% Ritt BIB. Followed by a pour of Blanton's. A few tense soccer matches today. Feeling a little more relaxed tonight.
