    Bettye Jo,

    Thanks for posting the pictures. Can't wait! I also thought it was a twist off cap and got excited. Something about the picture makes it look like it is a metal twist off cap. I think the bottle would look great with a twist off. There were a lot of great bourbons in the past with metal twist off caps, like Old Taylor or Old Grandad. Metal cap or not, at the end of the day it's what's in side that counts.

    Glad to hear that NY is getting a stash high on the list. I tried to convince the "powers that be" to launch it at my shop, but sounds like an industry launch is gonna happen at The Brandy Library since Manhattan wins out over Brooklyn. arggggg We'll host our own launch that'll be more public than "industry." Can't wait! Yee-haw!

    Ben and I went to the industry launch last night at the Brandy Library. Craig Beam and Larry Kass were there to talk about the whiskey and kick it off for the NY market. Although it was announced that the whiskey would be for sale in October, I ended up getting a delivery of it this month somehow and wasn't gonna complain! I've met Parker, but not Craig so I enjoyed picking his brain a bit. He said they were all surprised by how nicely the Bernheim aged, even at 6 months old. It was good to get away from the store a bit and have some good Beam company!

    I remember seeing some bottles at the Gala, but got sidetracked and forgot to ask if they were pouring it, did anyone there think to ask? If so what did you think?

    I didn't attend the Gala, but Parker poured if for us at SB.com's gathering at HH Thursday night. Very pleasing -- soft and flavorful, and different than either wheaters or rye-flavored bourbons. Kinda pricey -- but I'll probably buy a bottle if I get the chance because it's different and likeable.

    Yes, they do think it's quite dear, but I'll probably pick up a bottle or two(one to try, one to keep/trade). Gotta support those distilleries so that they keep creating new things to try.
