Benchmark bourbon?

Unread postby jr1968 » Sat May 19, 2012 2:43 pm

I picked up a bottle and it's not bad for a lower priced bourbon.

What is everybody's thoughts on this bourbon?


Thanks,

This bourbon, made by Seagrams years ago was a very good bourbon. Haven't had any of the new stuff. Is it Heaven Hill now?

I see it on the shelves sometimes. Just didn't pull the plug yet.

I had some in a Sprite and bourbon a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was fine for mixing, and I'm sure that's how most folds drink it.

It's a good value, not unlike Very Old Barton or Evan Williams, get a 1.75 litre for less than $20 bucks.
