    The bottle is clearly labeled distilled in Indiana so do we have any other candidates?

    Unless somebody else is making bourbon in Indiana I would put my money on the sign, and whoever the PR people for the company are, being wrong!

    Probably the first time that has happened...

    You're a better man than I. I would have said f&@k, give me one of each and I'll make a 4 grain vatting.

    I don't think so, but you know - I didn't ask to see one close up (several of the stores had them, and the labels all looked the same - it wasn't the paper label I've seen on the 750s that were age stated; the label looked like the same design as the current).

    Two weeks, where were you?

    I've started bringing a flask of something barrel strength when I go to Europe, so I can have a couple of nice pours over there. Hard place to get bourbon and the prices are nuts.

    Oh, then they were probably current. I've never seen current label 375s only the old paper label. Carry on...
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I was in Central America for work and was on duty 24/7, which prevented me from drinking. I see a lot of bourbon in my near future now that I'm home!
