    Old Crow and Old Taylor BIB.

    Does anyone know where to get any 100 proof Old Crow or Old Taylor? I have decided to drink 100 proofers regularly now that I have tasted nearly everything else. I bought a bottle of Colonel Lee 100 proof (plentiful in Ohio) and it tastes good with ginger ale, even though the EXPERTS say it is garbage.

    Nope. But in your quest, I highly recommend Old Grand Dad BinB 100 proof.

    I don't believe Beam markets a 100 proofer of Old Taylor or Old Crow. Bottled in Bond versions were common during the National Distillers days, but the 100 proof versions of these are even quite rare in dusty bottle form in California.

    I just snapped up a distilled spring 1972 (DSP-KY-19, the original OT distillery's final season, I believe), bottled spring 1982 (DSP-KY-14) Taylor. Tasted it last night--one of the best bourbons I've ever had, with a pronounced fruitiness atop the pure rye-spice.

    Thomas,
    If you're looking for only 100 proofers (i.e. not 101, etc.), and especially if you're looking for lower $, try Mellow Corn, a corn whisky (bright yellow label). Straight forward, but not harsh, and cheap. I only have a bottle because when I stopped in a North Carolina ABC store, an old fellow just voluntered "this stuff is cheap, but real good." He went on to report how it was just the thing for relief of his lung cancer. I figured at $8.99, why not? Certainly worth it; I've paid more for less.

    Thanks for the info Bob. I like whiskey at 100 proof and above. I am getting a shipment of 5 bottles tomorrow from Binny's of Chicago. 4 of them are 101 proof or more. I have had most of the 80 and 90 proof brands. With the 100+ proofers, I can cut them back in strength if I want. I usually buy a bottle of a brand, drink it and then try something else. The only eception is the rye whiskeys, there aren't nearly as many available. My current favorite is Wild Turkey rye!

    I found a bottle today of this exact same stuff, and I concur - it's a superior bourbon in every way. Long, flavorful, powerful. I am all grins at stumbling on to this one!

    Old Taylor BIB was one of my absolute favorite bourbons. Regrettably, I have never tasted Old Crow BIB, but from what I understand its flavor was changed (and not for the better) after a distillery remodeling in the late 1950s.

    I have one fifth (just opened) and two pints (unopened) of OT BIB distilled in 1971, and bottled in 1979 (the fifth) and 1980 (the pints). These were sent to me seven years ago by a former board member here to whom I still actually owe money for them - due to unforseen circumstances I lost not only all contact with him but his personal information.

    It may be possible that the info has made it thru the various upgrades here. Now if they changed their email address from back then, they are indeed gone.

    I had a pint of the very same stuff, and I have two half pints still waiting. Yummy stuff it was...
