    And if I was in Minnesota, I would be scooping up some of the HH 8/86, as I've never had the opportunity to try some.

    Re: Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    RI has some 8/86 left. I've bought a case for the bunker but it's going away here as well. My go to budget bourbon to bring to a party and toss the cap away was OF BiB. It used to be $12 a bottle and the 100 proof stood up to mixers, ice and water without wilting. It was my drink of choice last summer - a big ice cube and three fingers of OF BiB made the heat bearable. But I'm told it's being discontinued so that the stocks can go into Larceny. Doesn't make me happy. I bought the last case in the state - I'm told although there may still be some floating around various stores. I took a bottle of FRYL to a party last night - it was well received and at $17 a bottle it might be my new value bourbon.

    That does seem to be the trend, new labels for a new age, Old brand whisky is for Old men.

    And the same Bourbon with a new age label is always higher in price. I'll stick with the Olds. Matter of fact I still miss Oldsmobile. Never have forgiven GM for that.

    Damn right, Oldsmobile, another victim of NewThink.

    Speaking of which how many people remember the Oldsmobile was named after a real person, Ransom Olds, whose factory had the first automobile assembly line in 1901 which idea Henry Ford adopted a few years later.

    I had forgot that one Squire but you jogged my memory.

    BAck on topic my favorite value pour/mixer changes over time. For the last couple of months its been OGDBIB, before that EWBIB, and before that AAA10Star.

    Solid choices TT, we had to import AAA but the others along with Forester served as regulars for years. Guess now I'll have to do some revisiting.

    Re: Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    AAA10Star is my pick for value/mixer bourbon. Holds up well to an assortment of mixers without losing its character. I use it for cooking, and 2 to 4 ounces in the ice cream maker kicks ordinary vanilla up a few notches. Inexpensive and versatile.

    When mixing (especially when mixing for a group), lately I've been going with Larceny.
