    Re: Who\'s making Harper ?

    You are right, I think, about it not being as big here as it once was. I have been seeing it on sale for as little as 13-14 bucks. In the past I never saw it under $25 US. It is a fine bourbon and at current prices a very well priced one. I would buy some, but I am afraid that it would become an old dusty in my bunker since there are many bourbons I prefer. It is too soft and mild to my taste. I do buy the 200 ml bottles from time to time for the free 'flask' it comes in. I have been thinking about buying two or three of the 200s and vatting the contents with some WT rye to see if that spices it up. I will do an experimental vatting first in a glass before I try a larger scale vatting.

    Ed,
    What age and what proof are you talking about?

    Re: Who\'s making Harper ?

    Hi BourbonJoe,
    The standard bottling. Gold Medal I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Louisville. 80 proof no age statement. I figure it to be 4 years old. I have seen other I.W. Harpers notably a 12 year old, but they are rather pricy $50 or more depending on the store. I will get around to it someday.

    Ed,
    The bottle of 80 that I have says it's 4 years old (look at the very bottom of the back label).

    The back label on my bottle is in Japanese. No age statement. Age statements are usually on the front of the bottle, in English, if it is there at all. If it is 4 years old, and I am sure it is, my guess is that they would rather not say that it is that young.
