bibamus, moriendum est
"Brown eyed women and red grenadine...
the bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean." -Jerry Garcia
I have a VOB BIB from the mid-90's with no age statement. What's interesting about this label is they went to an age statement when many brands have done the opposite.
"This is the real article. It is double-rectified busthead from Madison County, aged in the keg. A little spoonful would do you a power of good."
-True Grit by Charles Portis
One thing I like about VOB is that it reminds me of the way lots of bourbons tasted years ago but few do now. That isn't necessarily a good flavor, objectively, I just happen to like it, but for what it is.
And, if you're a value-oriented, it's pretty hard to beat.
