    By all means, get a bottle of OCPR and try it. It is excellent!

    I would also give a ringing endorsement of the OCPR. And, the older Louisville produced OCPR in the "sloped shoulder" bottle is better yet, still.

    Cheers!

    For the price the 12yr is a better value. They taste to similar for the 13 to be a regular pour. The 13 is my special bottle and 12 is every day. Actually, the 7 year 86 proof is the hidden gem of the bunch. It should be said that I have not had the Bib as of yet.

    Well I tried this tonight and was a bit disapointed? It may have been by far the smoothest pour with very little burn, but seemed a bit flat and not much going on. I can say I found it bland really...maybe I just had really high expectations!!

    The bottle was open but did not have much missing from it. Dono but it was not as great as I wished.

    Give it a couple or three days and try it again. My first impression and expectations were the same as yours. Since that time it's really grown on me - to the point of being one of my favorites. Sadly though, it is out of production now. As for me, been gathering a few for the bunker of late. IMHO it is clearly the best ever produced with the OC label. That is coming from a guy who first learned to enjoy bourbon a number of years ago primarily from OC10, OC8 and OC-BIB7. For about the first 5 years, OC was all I knew in terms of bourbon......well, not exactly - since I was one of those dummies who thought JD was bourbon!
