Does anyone have any feedback about Old Carter Bourbon?

 

i saw some at a normal haunt and looked it up online. 
 

generally positive reviews but very pricy. 
 

any thoughts would be appreciated!

It is a little pricey, but it’s really good whiskey/bourbon. To me they have just enough funky/different taste that it makes it worth the investment.

What about the straight ryes? I have a shot at a fairly large bunch of the newest releases at MSRP. I'm pretty excited.

Isn't this just more sourced MGP whiskey? Apparently very pricey sourced MGP whiskey. What am I missing?

Good mgp can be very good, plus hype... My favorite bottle of all time is a lock stock and barrel 13, which is an ADL. I find them on old back shelves and happily pay around $120 for them every time I see one.

Kentucky owl, wp, Templeton 10, redemption 10... Many more I'm sure. All tasty mgps fore more than you'd think.

Whatever works for you is all that matters. Personally, I won't spend big $$ with a NDP.

Yep the bourbon is good.  Now the 12 yr American Whiskey is very good, and so are the ryes from Old Carter

I don't believe the Kentucky Owl is MGP.  All of KO's stuff has been specifically Kentucky Bourbon; without it being a Kentucky source, they couldn't call it that.  A lot of people speculate multiple sources, including Four Roses, Barton, and Heaven Hill.  I have liked everything I've had from KO; blending barrels from multiple sources yields flavor profiles you wouldn't expect.

 

The latest Old Carter bourbons are Dickel sourced, if I remember reading correctly.  The mash bill I read was Dickel, 100%.  That would also explain the lack of KSBW on the label...

Kentucky Owl rye isn't MGP, at least not batch one.  My bottle says "Kentucky straight Rye Whiskey".
