    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    When my supply of US sourced bourbon runs out I'm probably going to be living on Blantons and WT exclusively....

    Last night I had a nice healthy pour of the SB Blend off this site. Darn good stuff after ~6months of marriage.

    They should add in there that by having to bottle at a lower proof (to minimize tax) they're destroying the flavour profiles of their products. Blantons 80pf, Green label Jack

    Blantons 80 proof isn't bottled at a lower proof for our market, that's what the product is everywhere in the world it's sold, so it's exactly the flavor profile they want you to exerience. I don't know much about green label Jack, but according to the JD website, it's a lighter less mature product which tells me it's exactly what they want you to taste, and I would assume the same all over the world.
    Now if you want to talk about Jim Beam (White Label), Buffalo Trace or Makers Mark which we know all lower the proof exclusively for the Australian market, then we can talk about destroying (maybe eroding is a better term) product profiles

    All I can say down here at the moment is thank heavens for beer.

    The spirits market is a joke. Blanton's original, Dickel 12 and maybe the WT RR 10/90 are the only labels I can think of that are anywhere near the mark for value for those of us who like to sip rather than drown in a mixer.

    Jeez I am a grump

    I paid 230 for 15 yr only 2 yrs ago, cheaper that GTS!
    These prices are bs. PHC for 130 is pretty good value for high proof rare bourbon at Dans
