    another age statement gone?

    20140920_151248[1].jpg

    Ive been concerned for some time about future availability of HH's lower line namesake brands. Today, I decided to buy a couple cases when I saw this. The green 6 year 90 proof is now NAS, and I saw it at at least a half dozen stores today, sometimes mixed in with older 6 year bottles. At least its not HH6*....

    also, apparantly, HHBIB gold is going away. I had several store owners and one distributor rep saying so, at least. And, the endless number of stores with none on the shelves now seems to confirm it. I found one place with any left, a local pharmacy, and bought them all....the look on the lady's face was funny!

    Good new though, is that the HH6BIB new label is showing up in more places, even if many stores who once carried it seem to be dropping it from their inventory saying they cant seem to get it. That same rep told me it was going away as well

    We've never had age stated green in Ohio just NAS. I've only seen it in KY.

    Re: another age statement gone?

    Thanks for the heads up. The only HH BIB around here seem to be the Gold Label and J.W. Dant. As between those two, is there any thought of which is the better bourbon, regardless of price? Or should I just keep passing both of these up and getting 7 yr 103 proof Fighting Cock in this realm?

    Oh I wouldn't say the Gold BIB is going away Fox. I prefer to think the supply of Evan Williams BIB is increasing.

    i cant blame HH one bit....Ive been saying for some time how nice it is they keep the supply up and prices down. No one else offers a respectable 6 year stated 90 proofer for $9, but sooner or later, you gotta reconsider. I prefer HHBIB to EWBIB, and the price was right, and I had the means and time, so I loaded up. Like I told the amused sales rep today as I cleared the shelf of all three HH labelings, "It's not like it's gonna go bad!"

    I give Dant a slight edge over HH gold label. Between those three, I definitely like Fighting Cock the best.
