    As my good friend, Emily Littella used to say, "Oh! . . . Never mind." You are correct; I should have left "bourbon" out of my post.

    Indeed. And to compound the problem, I finished 2 oz of JB SigCraft 12 yr BEFORE I logged on, guaranteeing fuzzy thinking. A man's got to know his limitations.

    It's the wheat that causes fuzziness Harry, stay away from that stuff.

    Unless you're Dizzy Dean who claimed to have put Bourbon in his Wheaties.

    Excellent news, and Chuck (in particular) summed it up for me. True enough that since Prohibition ended, this is apparently the first straight wheat to be released, but wheat whiskey existed before Volstead and one has to assume that straight versions were made - hence the creation of the category on the books as Chuck said, in the 1930's. Seagram made a "white wheat whiskey" before WW I, for example.

    To reprise what another poster said, HH is awesome.

    Well Clay, give us your thoughts? I have never had Bernheim. It might be time to buy a bottle.

    This makes me even sadder its harder and almost impossible to get HH BiBs here in Pa. So much respect for a company that is moving from NAS to a stated age. Even if chuck said the trend is not going to NAS its moving age statements to premium bottles, I have to disagree as a newb. The premiums have always been age stated, mid to low shelves are the ones changing by moving to NAS. Semantics I know, but to me thats removing age statements, not shifting them to a tier that already had them. Anyways much respect for HH, and after searching the state site I found a few bernheim's within driving distance of me, I'll pick one up to show my support for one of the few companies not shafting the fans by dropping age statements (I know someone will point out that they have before I got into bourbon). Can't wait for this new stated bottle to show up.
