    Re: Another one soon to be history.....???

    There are a number of old brands we took for granted until they were no more. If I've learned anything it's stock up whenever you can.

    Re: Another one soon to be history.....???

    I have a couple of "warm-up" bourbons, and this is one of them. Another was AAA10 and OGD 86 - all value pours, and if you didn't move on to anything bigger/bolder were entirely satisfying in their own right. And now all gone in this year alone - where is my crying towel?

    Obviously cost accountants at work. Numbers, numbers, no sense of history or loyalty.

    This bad news, but at least it's priced where we can afford to bunker the hell out of it.

    I'm a huge HH fan, so I had been looking forward to trying this one for the longest time. Now I'm really glad that I brought home a few bottles from a trip to Minnesota, but I knew that I should have bought more...

    Yep. I said the same thing after I got home from vacation last year and opened one up.

    I suppose this should have been obvious, when EW BiB and 1783 showed up here that we would lose something dear.

    I have been too damn busy to get out and try to stock up but I know that at least one store near where I work doesn't even have a shelf tag for it any more.

    My only hope with this is that is still may be available as a dusty in a lot of stores for the near future. it will be fun to pull it off and remember the "good ole' days" when you could get it anywhere.

    Sigh.....

    Because of the unique partnership Heaven Hill has with its distributors, distributors often can offer products that aren't generally available. The decision to drop an odd expression in one state may very well be a distributor decision, not Heaven Hill.
