I found a few bottles of "Old Parr" in a liquor store in Texas, houston.
I bought as much as I can. I think 6 of them.
I still have some that I bought in one of trips to south america, so I know the taste very well. When I open one of the new ones and tasted it, what a surprise, it taste different.
Could it be a knock off? The bottle looks the same, the label is different a little bit, and the seal is different.
The original does not have and old man in the front label (just in the back) but it has the grand old Parr and it looks like old paper and it is framed by a maroon color. These are the type of bottles I always get.
The new one has a oldman i. The label,allthe wording is there, but different positions, not trying to be close to the original, but different. In the back has a label that reads all the US goverment (it is bad for pregnant woman to drink, etc.) It also says Imported by DIAGEO Americas, Norwalk, CT.
Is this a real old parr? Why taste different?
