I would have to say you were either very brave, or just were lucky enough to have some extra cash lying around, to try the 4 grain again. At almost $90 a bottle, that's a hefty price to pay for a "rotten walnut" nose/taste. I totally agree that its a good thing when the distillers try new things, especially for us fanatics. But based on what I've heard about the 4 grain, I would never even entertain the thought of buying it, even if the price was half of what it is regularly going for. Are there any folks out there that have tried the 4 grain and liked it? If so, I'm sure there's lots of us that would love to hear what you have to say about it.

I tried this bourbon at Bourbon's Bistro the other day. I found it to be better than the first batch, but still pretty metallic and grainy. The extra year's age helped, but not $90.00 worth of help in my opinion. Still, I applaud Brown-Forman for trying new products and look forward to their next experimental product.

There was an article in yesterday's Courier-Journal about the new high priced "ultra-premium" bourbons that was interesting. It discusses the 4 Grain bourbon as well as other such products. You might want to check out the C-J's website and read the article. It discusses how these products create interest in the establihed, lower cost products, giving the whole industry a lift.

I was considering purchasing a bottle, and then I decided to read the reviews. I think I'm going to hold off. I haven't been thrilled with WR and I was wondering about this one. I'd rather buy the PVW 23 instead.
