    Should we start hoarding "old" label VOB now?

    Ha - I see your point, but this is good bourbon, and along with EW white label BIB, is a sensational bargain. A couple of cases of each are going in my stash.

    I finished my 48th bottle of 2010 a few weeks ago. Where does it go? In other words, don't think that a couple of cases is going to last very long.

    I don't think so, quality wise as far as ingrediants and the production and aging, yes.
    But it just ain't got the taste.
    Are you letting the low low price influence you?

    I never mention price when I sample things out to friends or do tastings and VOB BiB always gets high marks.

    I'm sure that is true because you said so.
    I was only speaking of what I find it to be, not others.
    I don't like VOB.

    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.

    Re: Very Old barton

    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.
