I was bored at work and was thinking about how in the world can a bourbon be SmB & SB? If this has already been discussed somewhere I apologize.

Thoughts anyone?

Because small batch means nothing or rather whatever the marketing guys decide that day.

I thought I read out there somewhere in Internet land that the SmB was an error and future bottles will just say SB ... not sure about that though.

Could a SB be considered to be a subset of SmB?

I guess they could run a small batch and then bottle it as single barrels?

small batch alone means a vatting of a limited number of selected barrels to assure quality. Single Barrel alone is obvious. Small Batch Single Barrel together means, your whiskey company has been taken over by people that don't know anything about whiskey so you're gambling when you buy this product. :cool:

Josh won't quote his own blog but here is what he wrote last week.
