Might be worth a shot. Looks like it  will be priced to compete with Rittenhouse. Can't be much worse than the sad 3yo Old Overholt that Beam has been using to do its best to destroy the last vestige of a once proud brand name.

I ordered two along with a bunch of scotch, you know because of shipping..... TWCP has some crazy good prices on some things I was planning on picking up anyway (Laphroaig CS and Highland Park Full Volume) and one I wasn't (Alexander Murray CS 12 yr Highland (Deanston I thinK)) they also tend to be the only place that ships to me that has Ballechin.

Thanks for the head's up.  Last time I had this was in the 1970s and into the 1980s because an uncle of my wife's had stockpiled a bunch (like cases) of this when he heard it was going to be discontinued.  He only allowed us to drink it in Manhattans, though.  OTOH, the best Manhattans I've ever had.  Thanks Uncle Joe.

I'll get one, just to try.  It certainly can't be worse than the current Overholt....Can it?!?!

Have you even seen this?  I get the feeling somebody made this up, the "this" being, "OO in bonded form is coming back!!!! Wait for it!!!!! It is going to be great!!!!!!!!"  Reminds me of an IBM salesman who was trying to get us to buy.  Like some bad hooker, he just sat there and kept telling us how good it was going to be but never delivered.:rolleyes:

So far I've only seen it online at the Wine and Cheese Place and that is still the only place that comes up on Wine Searcher. I would imagine it will have wider distribution at some point.

Thanks, K.  I guess it IS real. LOL.  And, at $22 per 750, I, too, will give it a fair testing.  When it shows up here.  I just had a thought - JB moved their rye proof from yellow's 80 to green's 90.  I wonder what the effect this release will have on production and sales of the green . . .   I also wonder if it will just be higher proof green.  Since HH's release of Pikesville 110 to complement its Ritt @ 100, I stopped buying the green.  I haven't heard how it's doing and am too lazy to find out.  Anybody (off the top of your head - I'll get around to looking sometime:rolleyes:)?

Pretty sure I have a green around here somewhere, I'll have to dig it up and see how they compare.

I wonder if Beam is going to give this old venerable brand it's just due, I can't think of a better way than introducing or re-introducing a Bottled in Bond version.  If only they would move production back to Broad Ford!  I am a big believer in provenance.

Besides being a nostalgic gesture, I can’t think of anything else that would accomplish at this point.

Yes, but from the pictures I’ve seen of it, Kinsey Distillery is a veritable palace.  :lol:

I picked up a bottle today at Binny's for $26.99 with a 15% off coupon.  FYI, I had to email Binnys and ask them to stock it at the location I frequent.  Done this a few times now, if they have it and it is plentiful they will send out the product to your store.
