    Bib

    I stopped at a couple of liquor stores on the way to work yesterday and found some more BIB bourbon. I have known for several months that one store had Kentucky Tavern BIB but now a 2nd store carries it as well as JTS Brown BIB. JTS runs 13.00 a 750 and Kentucky Tavern is 10.00. If anyone is interested in either, feel free to send me a PM. I see JTS in stores periodically but this is only the 2nd place I have found Kentucky Tavern and I have searched a lot of places!

    Picked up some CL Bib, last trip to Ky. One bottle almost didn't even make it home. It is a very smooth and easy drinking bourbon with all of the flavor one expects from a Bib pour. Wish I could find it locally.

    I would say it is a little more tame and sophisticated than the Tom Moore Bib, I usually buy.

    Re: Bib

    Truth is, right now those cheap BIBs, in their limited distribution, are some of the best values in straight bourbon whiskey. I can't explain why they're so good, they just are. Very Old Barton BIB has been one of my go-to bourbons since I lived in Kentucky more than 20 years ago. Now I'm very big on JTS Brown BIB too. My other perennial favorite is Old Fitzgerald BIB. Old Fitz and the equally excellent Old Grand-Dad aren't particularly good values--not bad, just not particularly good. It's the BIBs from Barton and Heaven Hill that are the great values. There's also Beam's Old Bourbon Hollow, but I'm not sure what that's going for right now.

    Re: Bib

    Now, Chuck's motivating me to head out to get the JTS BIB at my local retailer. If I don't like it, I'll gift him a bottle less one pour at KBF.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it. One of the best Bourbons available here in Ohio regardless of the price. It's a damn steal for $13.

    Last night I was at a friends house and his buddy is a big Maker's fan. Pretty much exclusively a MM drinker. I busted out some JTS Brown BIB and he said he's switching. He not only loved the taste but the price is just right.

    Also, has anyone noticed that MM is cheaper in OH if you buy it in the 12 pack of little 50 ML bottles?

    $16.65 - 600 ML Vs. $14.00 - 375 ML

    Even that isn't so bad, I grabbed a 375 of MM on the way to a friends house, didn't look at the price tag, and was shocked when it rang up $18.99! I never would have even thought to buy a bunch of mini's instead though (assuming it does actually work out to be a better price in my area...), definitely something to look into though!

    Re: Bib

    I grew up in Ohio. Every peculiarity noted is a direct result of socialized booze. One thing you don't do in Ohio if you're a producer is delist, so you're liable to see brands there that were pulled out of everyplace except the Bourbon Belt 30 years ago. JTS Brown, Mattingly and Moore, Kentucky Tavern and, I'm sure, several others. Today, a listing in Ohio is an asset that probably makes those brands more valuable when they change hands.
