That's some yummy juice. It's better then the standard 80 proof version and is almost as good as the 10 yr 86 proof.

Well I found this particular bottle a little off. I'm hoping some time open evens out the flavors. It's worth drinking straight in my opinion, but it needs some work.

The ones I have had were more fruity and the 6 proof points helped the flavors out quite a bit.

I opened up a new OC review for the 86 proof...so you are now the only one to review that particular label.

Cool, Thanks! Like I said I will be revisiting and will post a 2nd review at some point. The nose was way to promising on this one. I would love for some of the fruit flavor to poke it's way through the earthy tones. What about the possiblility of this being older than 7 years?

I think that it is definitely possible. I doubt that they went crazy...but they probably had different profile standards when their warehouses were brimming with product. I have heard that they used some really old stock in the OCPR...much older than 13yr.

I don't know if Gary would know anything about this...but there has to be some standards for profile compillation...ie: how to form a batch for a production run. If I had to guess...and from what I can gather; you probably start with the minimum yr available for the label. Then, taste. Add some of the next step up on the age scale. Then, taste. Figure out how much more water or distillate you need to fill to the proper gallonage for bottling...and add accodingly. If it tastes good, you would add the same perportions....if it needed something you would add accordingly for that.

What would be nice...is, if we knew what size batches each distiller used for their labels.
