Lets hear it folks... You asked, you begged, now here it is.. the OGD 114 takes the cake for current Beam products (not my bag. I do not like the metalic taste in the current stuff)

So sound off on why

I am going to go ahead and defend my vote. I went with Price/value point. This is a barrel proof in the sense that it has a very high proof which makes it a good deal. It sells for 22.95 which is a good deal. It is the highest rye bourbon on the market which is a good deal. And finaly with a little water added to lower the proof down around 100 proof it is better then the OGD BIB IMO which is a good deal. So in summery this bourbon is a all around good deal. :)

I picked "Price/Value" but I wouldn't buy this if I didn't like it. It's a staple of my repertoire and a damn fine example of quality whiskey for a reasonable price -- the taste is why I drink it, the price is the reason I stock up so heavily -- every time I pass the store that sells it for $18 I grab at least one bottle.

Good flavor at a reasonable price. The poll is telling the key to success for the brand.

I like the flavor. The bottle that I got seem really good. I drink it on those cold winter days!
If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

Sorry, but I will not drink ANY Beam whiskey, PERIOD. The National Distillers OGD 114 is some of the best bourbon to be savored. I am fortunate enough to have a 4/5th of this nectar of the gods of whiskey. It is a delight to sip with just a splash of mineral water.
