    I'd like to see Ten high ten again!
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    You well may, though perhaps not under that label. I'm confident Sazerac will come up with something.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    Weren't we just having a discussion a little while back about how Barton isn't distilling frequently? If I recall, some people were rumoring that Sazerac wasn't even having them distill anymore (Which turned out to be false...). BUT, that being said, are their short distilling cycles finally catching up to them???
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Right? Why isn't Barton distilling more in the middle of a boom?!? It's like certain whiskey writers denying the Rye boom right up until all the Rye was gone.

    What what WHAT?!?
    I go away for a couple of days and come back to this? Man, this is very disappointing. I have about half of a 750 and a 1.75 left with no opportunity for replacement. This is depressing.

    Hate to think this, but one could argue it's a real measure of how much contempt they have for their own customers.

    Wade, I was looking looking for a reason earlier this year to march on Browns office in Frankfort (alas truth about Ten High sticking around squelched my rabble-rousing) but THIS seems more than enough to raise the troops again. Can I offer you a colonelcy? (Of course it's getting cold now, so could we delay our campaign until May or June?)

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I thought about getting a few today, but wasn't overly enamored in the past with VOB, so I decided against it. Not bad stuff by any means, but not something I have a burning love for either. More for you guys, right?
