Fred Minnick tweeted this week:
CONFIRMED: Heaven Hill is discontinuing age statement for Virgin 7 yr 101 bourbon, mostly distributed in North Carolina. They need aged stocks for Elijah, McKenna and barrel proof products, company said. Another regional age stated product, HH Green label, is staying, they said.

Some stores are already receiving no age statement bottles of Virgin Bourbon. Time to stock up on the aged product!!!

Finished off a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch Select which was nice, but for me needed a bit more complexity to make it worth the price of admission.

Have you had the barrel strength?  I had one with the high rye mashbill and it was enjoyable.

Yes, I've had a few variants of the Barrel Strength 4 Roses. All have been delicious.

Finished off Pikesville Rye which is a Heaven Hill product. At 50 beans it's a bit pricey, but quite delicious.

You know, I still haven't tried that.  I need to grab a bottle sometime.  They made some waves around here when they discontinued the cheap stuff which was an institution, but that was really only good for mixing.

Finished off a Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky which was quite nice. I still prefer Monkey Shoulder. Shackleton is tasty, but not complex.
