    I wish they would just make it less shitty.

    Re: I wish Suntory would

    They could start by giving it at least 4 years of aging again. Couldn't hurt...

    make Old Overhold a BIB for under $25; would be nice to compare that to Ritt BIB (and probably would be a damn nice pour).

    I also kinda wish they would let Cooley open up a bit again with some of the interesting things they were doing with Irish Whiskey before Beam apparently changed the direction but that is a thought for a different thread I suppose.

    I wish they would make it right or not make it at all.

    Re: I wish Suntory would

    My wife had an uncle who bunkered and served in his Manhattans on the rocks, we're pretty sure, OO for years after WWII into the 1980s (1987?) when National Distillers sold it to Fortune Brands (Jim Beam). I experimented for years and am pretty sure he used a 100 proof version in his Manhattans along with Dolins vermouth which, then, none of us had heard of. Anyway, I wish Suntory would produce a real OO BIB so I could find out, before I die, if I've guessed right. In the meantime, Ritt BIB is getting the nod. I also agree with T about Cooley's products. I'm now out of JL Sullivan and running short of Michael Collins SM and blended both.

    OO, JB Rye, and KC Rye all taste like vodka and peanut shells to me. Come on Suntory, you probably have the original OO recipe. Out of all the major US distillers, Beam is the only one I can say that every version of their rye is bad. This isn't just me hating on Beam. I do like KCSB and OGD BIB, and OGD 114.

    Now that is very funny. Couldn't agree more!

    Agreed 100%, the only solution.
