    What is/are your favorite BIB('s)

    What's your favorite Bonded whiskey- including rye and mellow corn? Let's go ahead and exclude Wild Turkey American Spirit (not fair to compare an 18$ bottle to a 100$ bottle).

    I'll go first:

    My first four are a very close race.

    1. VOB
    2. Rittenhouse
    3. Old Forester (not sure if it's still bonded- but its good)
    4. OGD (most recent bottling was a bit thinner/less spicy than I remember it, but still really good)

    Heavenhill is also pretty good, but I haven't got hold of the 6 year yet. I've only had EW BIB one time about 5 years ago when I went to a Volunteers game in knoxville, but as I remember it was tasty.
    Mellow corn is also good, but I recently had some Old fitz BIB and was kind of disappointed (might have just been a bad bottle though).

    1) Four Roses Single Barrel
    2) VOB
    3) Rittenhouse
    3a) JTS Brown

    With a large gap between 1 and the rest.

    Ox, do you find JTS Brown to be better/different than other HG BIB's?

    It barely matters for me inasmuch almost none of them are available in NYC. But I'll be in KY soon & want to pick a few up.

    I also like the gold label bonded HH, but JTS Brown is available in Ohio so I picked the o.e I can get with a short drive.

    Is it better? None of the cheap bonds will knock me off of my feet, but I recognize them for their superior price/value return.

    Perhaps I need to do a HH green, HH gold, JTS comparo to see if there is a marked difference.

    I like the Riittenhouse Rye BIB, EW BIB, HH BIB 6 yr, and OGD BIB.

    It won't knock yer socks off but it's a sweet, subtle pre-supper or summertime sipper. It will only set you back $33 at Binny's or $30 here in the Great Lakes State.

    There are four BIBs available to me so I may as well call them my regulars if not favorites, Barton, Grand Dad, Heaven Hill and Dant.
