    Well, there is the HH White with green text but that is 6yo BIB (the inverse green with white text is the non BIB 6yo HH) but off the top of my head I don't know of a 4yo BIB White label HH.

    Here is a pic of the gold BIB, the White/Green BIB 6yo and VROHH 10yo BIB.

    As far as how do the bunch compare with the EW BIB White...I haven't done a side by side yet...

    Re: opinions: the best, currently available, bourbon from Heaven Hill

    I've had both the HH BIB 6yo and 10yo.
    I can sum the taste of those in one word, hot.

    But I do want to get some Evan William white label.

    Re: opinions: the best, currently available, bourbon from Heaven Hill

    If you can find this expression, don't know if it's made anymore, it is the best HH product I've tasted. Full of bannanas. It's a 7 year 86 proof. It's on the left.

    The one in the middle is a 1993 HH BIB - superb and much rounder and richer in flavor than the current label.

    The other is a 1983 Daniel Stewart 80 proof 4 year-also should be HH juice.

    Found all those yesterday.

    I see, the EW White BiB is 4 y/o and the HH I was thinking of is 6. That answers my question. I would like to get my hands on a bottle of that 7 y/o though. Sounds good, Don.

    Of the ones I have been able to try, my vote definitely goes to Henry McKenna 10-year old single barrel.

    Go with the EWSB.
    As I Mentioned in your 20whiskies thread, and as Timothy states above the EW BiB is very good, and cheap so it'd be perfect for your value shelf. If you can't find it, again as I mentioned and Timothy states go with EWSB.

    I like EWSB better than EC12, but I think EC12 is the quintessential HH pour.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    The Parker Heritage is one of the best bourbons... from any distillery.
