    OGD 114 Being Discontinued? (Rumor)

    I've seen a couple of references to this on a couple of Facebook pages and I really hope there is no basis for this rumor. Since it's not age-stated, I'd be surprised if it were indeed true. Still, I'm worried as this is one of my regular pours.

    The sky is falling!
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I'm taking the rest of the day off so I can rent a uhaul and pick up every bottle in the greater Houston area.

    The FB page I saw it on is filled with people who have an interest in selling their 'rare' bourbons for a significant premium. Just sayin'.

    There's also a reference on the ODG 114 FB page where someone says they heard that as well. Again, I'm skeptical, but usually this board is the place where these rumors are either confirmed or debunked. Sadly, some of these rumors have turned out to be true over the past year or so.

    Y'all just let me know when BIB is put on the chopping block so I know when to run out and get a case.

    I would not cite Facebook as an authority.

    Nor would I, but sometimes when there's smoke, there's fire.

    Well it wouldn't surprise me, other than proof the 114 is not dissimilar to the BIB which is a big seller. Let's face facts, the 114 is an underpriced anachronism in the Global World of 80 proof spirits and the brand is owned by Beam Global.

    Frankly, I'm not aware of any difference, other than proof, between 114 and Basil which already carries a higher price tag even at the lower strength. Basil is being heavily advertized.
