This is a bottle I have had for a while and is exactly as the picture shown on the review page. At 124 proof it is a bit 'hot'. I have it in my mind to vat this with some softer, sweeter whiskies such as Bernheim or Maker's Mark or maybe one of the Old Charter whiskies.
I have a vatting that I mentioned in another post that is composed of 1 part VW Rye, 1 part WLW Barrel proof, and 4 parts Bernheim Wheat that is just a superb whiskey. Since the VW Rye is frankly too good to be used for vatting, maybe I can add a bit of OP instead and perhaps cut the rye part to .75 instead of 1 part.
This OP is quit unique and is challenging...........but I do indeed like it for a change of pace. I have not kept up with what Mr Maytag is doing these days with his OP, does anyone know what he is offering now?
