Here endeth the lesson.
Whiskey's fer drinking, stamps are fer collecting.
The post was in response to age not mashbills. I know BH is not the same mashbill as JB.
I really like the woody stuff. It's a flavor that can only be obtained by spending 20 years or so in a barrel. I like to save up the charred bits in the bottom of the unfiltered stuff. When I have enough, I pour milk on it and eat it.
I was once on a tour of 4R's Cox Creek facility and we got to sample some whiskey right out of the barrel. One of the guys on the tour asked for, and received, extra char. I don't remember if he actually swallowed it. He did try to grope me later that day tho.

On the subject of old vs young wheaters, lessee,
I like Weller 12 more than Weller SR.
I like current VSOF more than current OF 1849.
I like Lot B and PVW 15 better than ORVW 10/107 (although I'm still convinced that the only bottle I bought of the ORVW was from a bad batch).
I like PVW 20 better than PVW 15.
Price increases faster than quality, however. PVW 20 costs roughly four times what Weller SR costs. It's not four times better.
