    Jeff Ocean II

    I was going to put this in the premium section but figured this is where it belongs. Anyway, I saw a picture of the new Oceans bottle. It doesn't say "Kentucky". Does that mean we most likely have LDI bourbon aged at sea or at least on a boat somewhere? If this has been covered I apologize.

    If its IN bourbon then it was probably aged on a riverboat casino.

    I recently saw a picture of some of the barrels from the first batch supposedly aged on the ocean. The barrels looked brand new. They certainly didn't look like they had been exposed to a salt water atmosphere.

    Well the barrels wouldn't have suffered at all if locked in a sealed container. We talk about this stuff as if it was cruising around on a Luxury Liner when in fact commercial containers are shipped in ordinary cargo vessels along with the coal, soybeans and other goods shuffling from port to commercial port along the Atlantic sea coast.

    Think they attached the barrels to the paddle wheel to increase the agitation. But that's the next release "Jefferson's Riverboat Gambler". That will be followed by the "Ferris Wheel Finished" and the "Bungee Cord Springback Limited Edition"

    At this point I'm pretty sure that Trey Zoeller is the Andy Kauffman of the bourbon world.

    I wouldn't pay extra for bungee whisky but I would like to watch it jump.

    Fantastic. I knew this is one topic that would bring out some comedy. I personally like the Ferris Wheel Finish. I can't believe people are snatching these things up like hot cakes. What will be the next gimmick? Let's hear them. :-)

    A quick trip around the web "suggests" that this may indeed, be LDI. One source lists it at "up to" 8 year old whiskey. Barrels on a ship that traveled around the world, stopping in something like 40 ports. That's about all I could find on it. Maybe, others can shed more light on your inquiry?

    A couple blogs said the first batch (600 bottles issued) spent 4 yrs on 126 ft research vessel that visited five continents and crossed the Equator 4 times. Haven't seen where this batch went and how.

    I have underwear that is older and has traveled more. EBay, here I come.
