    current Old Taylor question

    I'm getting a bottle of current OT for a fellow SB.com'er to do a side by side with vintage OT. After I left the store with a 200ml bottle of 6 y.o. Old Taylor I realized it was only 80 proof.

    My question(s): Is it only available in 80 proof now? I've seen some bottles with the current design that were pink in color I simply assumed were either newer or slightly older, now I'm thinking those were 86 proof bottles. Are they?

    Re: current Old Taylor question

    All the current release Old Taylor that I have seen has been 80 proof. Any 86 or 100 proof bottles I have found have been pre-Beam whiskey.
