    I am not too far beyond being a novice in the 'serious' bourbon world, but I do not recall ever hearing of this one or seeing it anywhere. Where have you seen it? Where are you located? If you have one, send me a pic in a PM.

    Google it and there is quite a bit of information, one article says it will rely heavily on internet marketing...interesting label, with a Pin-up Gal on it...made by Strong Spirits Inc.

    $21.00 for an 80 proof bourbon that seems to be aimed at non-bourbon drinkers.

    80 Strong's website : http://www.80strong.com/

    Press Release from Feb 2006:
    http://www.topix.net/content/cj/5663700175416208227

    ...She’s more than just another pretty face, and once you get your first taste of 80 Strong you’ll agree. The 80 proof, lower than most bourbons, makes it very smooth and tasty. Sensuous aromas of vanilla and hazelnut; lusty notes of caramel; hints of fruits and almonds; delicious neat, on ice or mixed. 80 Strong is a small-batch, premium authentic Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, distilled, aged and bottled in Bardstown, KY.

    “When I decided to make this I wanted to take some truly premium bourbon and get it into a hot new package,” says Michael Kanbar, owner and founder of Strong Spirits, Inc. the producer of 80 Strong. “I always was turned on by products that looked cool without being pretentious and that are without compromise in how they’re made, stuff like Burton Snowboards, Harley Davidson motorcycles and Fender Stratocasters. So I took that concept and applied it to making 80 Strong.”....

    The more I "get into" bourbon, the more I realize that 80 proof anything doesn't usually cut it. I don't usually even buy 80 proof bourbon anymore, very rairly anyway.

    That label looks like it's aimed at young party animals that just want to mix it with soda or something. The girl kinda looks like a young Madonna.

    Just what the Bourbon world needed.

    Hmm, I think I can give this one a wide berth and still manage to sleep soundly.

    Come back, Thedford! All is forgiven.

    I noticed the address, 1010 Withrow Court....

    Jim Beam has warehouses on Withrow Court. One of them burned not long ago. It's near Jedico Hall. Jedico Hall, is where they hold the "Gala" every year during the Kentucky Bourbon Festival.

    I don't know the "exact address" of those warehouses but they are located on that road

    Even if it wasn't 80 proof, the label and the "kick ass" attitude have already insured I'd never even consider ordering this.
