    As a matter of fact a bottle of Lot B is in the on-deck-circle in my rotation, maybe I'll get to it later this week.
    You and Scott are welcome if you want to open it before then.

    I wish I could take you up on the offer, but there's too much going on to justify the trip north.

    I was in KY today, and they have indeed changed the packaging on the VOB BIB. The "newer" Weller style bottle.

    Just the BIB? What about the price?

    Re: Very Old barton

    All that I saw was the BIB. He said he just got them in on Monday. The other proofs were in the old style bottles. The pricing was higher than what I'm used to seeing it, but this store was higher priced in general (BT 750ml @ $25+; and other brands similarly priced). The BIB was $16-$17. Yeah, I bought it. Suckaaaaah!!!

    BTW, the label design appears to be the same, except the dimensions are different to fit the bottle. But, unlike the Wellers, it is not a clear label. It's the regular paper/metalized paper label.

    If you've got it, let's see a picture.

    Uh...I don't know how. But, now's a great time to learn! If you could PM me on how to do that, I'll post it up.
    Thanks.
