    Re: BOTM 1/11: J.T.S. Brown BIB

    Picked up a bottle at Liquor Barn last night. I found it surprisingly good. Nutty, minty, great mouthfeel, I put it on the same pedestal as VOB BIB as far as value goes. Had it on the rocks while at the neighbor's and neat at home today. I would choose this over Evan Williams Black Label any day of the week (although maybe the Evan Williams BIB is similar, but I've never had it.)

    I like this as a value pour. Nobody is going to mistake it for EWSB, but I find it to be very drinkable straight or on the rocks.

    If you had to pick one- between VOB BIB and JTS brown BIB- what would be your value/bulk buy?

    sorry if that's a little off topic. I mean no disrespect to the botm selection.

    Re: BOTM 1/11: J.T.S. Brown BIB

    I've been looking for JTS Brown BIB for several years, mostly due to the fact that a friend of mine thinks it's a "fictional" bourbon that doesn't really exist, other than in the movie "The Hustler." I finally came across a dozen bottles at the South Loop Binny's only to discover that they were all the 80 proof expression, so I passed on them. Someday I'll get the BIB in hand and drop one off on my buddy's doorstep--he'll certainly be surprised. (And I'll stick one on the bar for myself, of course.)

    I'm happy to say JTS Brown is available in Indiana. It seems like it's one of those brands like OWA 107 as far as availability goes. The stores that stock it go through spans of time without any on the shelves. The best way I could describe JTS Brown BIB is at 100 proof, it tastes like a very mild 80 proof bourbon. It has a nice mouth feel, tastes mostly like corn, not much rye, or oak.

    Re: BOTM 1/11: J.T.S. Brown BIB

    It's a very good budget pour. Very nice flavor, and very much like the Evan Williams BIB's, if you've ever tried them. It/they have a very nice unsweetended dark chocolatey/cocoa thing going on, that I find very drinkable. These expressions of HH's BIB's have won a special place in my heart over the last couple of years, as I find all of them to be extremely nice whiskies, at a very reasonable price.

    I don't have a bottle of VOB BIB at home right now to compare, but I'd split it 50/50 if I was stocking up. IMO they are both better than some bourbons that sell for twice the price.

    Thanks- exactly what I was wondering!
