    I see, so this still might not be a Sazerac release then.

    That's the same bottle that I have at home. The new ones which I thought looked like they dropped the BIB designation is shown in this shot from the Sazerac web site, so I guess my question about BIB vs. non-BIB still stands.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.

    Re: Very Old barton

    Is it now time for a panic purchase of a case of VOB BiB?

    It does look different, unless the back label carries the BIB designation. Even if it doesn't, it may (possibly) meet the bonded requirement even though not stating so.

    Barton's is excellent bourbon and still excellent value. I still have some 90. I like it on the rocks.

    This is along the lines of what I'm wondering, so I was trying to find out if anybody knew the story on the label change and did it mean that the VOBBIB I have recently become familiar with was also slated to change.

    Unfortunately, VOBBIB is a little too spendy around me to justify a case purchase, but if I could get it at the prices everybody else posts, then I'd have probably already stashed a case.

    Picked up a case last week for $104.88. A STEAL if you ask me.

    IIRC, that pic has been floating around for a while. I think it's the result of photoshopping. If you see a 100 proof VOB that is NOT labeled BiB again, then take a picture and post it here. We need to know such things!

    The pic that Binnys has up for VOB 100 has the same "hand bottled" at the top of the label as the pic here.

    I have a tattoo that says "hand bottled", although I'm not going to tell you where. But I assure you, I am still bottled in bond.

    That is a steal! Did you buy it in a dark alley out of a guys trunk? Your post reminds me that I need to pickup some more. This is a very good bourbon for the price.

    Hey Joe (Lost Pollito), I'll be stopping in this Monday on my way to Michigan. Can you get me a deal like this?
