They had the NS and DS at my local store, does anyone prefer the single barrel from a specific warehouse to any others?

Whatever you do stay away from BS. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I have a hard enough time keeping the various mashbill / yeast strain alphabet soup sorted out in my head. I'll guess have to drink a LOT more 4R to develop a sense of my warehouse preferences ... thanks for the idea!

Based on the 8 or so open bottles of various Binny's 4R single barrels and other LESB releases I have, I don't see any correlation between preference and warehouse.

Here's a picture I took of the 4R warehouses from the Cox's Creek tour:

You'll notice that they're all one story buildings. While I'm sure there will still be differences from the different warehouses, I imagine that having one story warehouses will diminish fluxuations both in and between warehouses.

That said, are the different recipes known to be stored at different warehouses or do they mix recipes throughout the different warehouses? If no one on here knows, I'm sure we can figure it out with a list of warehouse locations for the different single barrel recipes.

They mix locations and barrels and recipes quite a bit. Not wanting to have all the eggs in one basket and all.
