    HH 6 yr BIB question on a label

    Bird and I picked up a couple 6 yr BIBs from HH from 92 and 94. What is strange is the one from 94 is missing the DSP number. The 92 has it and the 750 from 94 has it, but nothing on teh 375 from 94.

    Was this just and error or part of an export that was misdirected or????

    I'd guess that it is most likely a line error, where someone grabbed the wrong back label to feed into the machine.

    What year was the fire at the distillery in Bardstown?

    The fire was in November, 1996.

    Heaven Hill has been known to use an inferior glue on its BIB labels.

    just for the record, there was not a neck label that I could detect that fell off.

    If I had to guess, it was a label change on the back that did not get proofed for all requried terms... I am sure it was fixed quick, but I thought these were a neat find... and the juice is quite good. Much better than the EWSBs
