    To me it reminds me more of Elijah Craig than Evan Williams, if that helps. I haven't had the 6 yr BiB so I can't compare.

    My latest bottle of 6 yr HH BIB, bought at Liquor World in Bardstown for around $10 (actually it was free to me since they were running a 10% off $100 spent) is very good whiskey with integrated corn, rye and vanilla for a classic bourbon taste. It seems better than ones I've had from a few years back. I don't have a FC or EW black to compare with either.

    Re: Fighting cock 103 vs OWA 107

    Can someone please vat the 2 and see what happens? Possibly make an Antique Cock or Old Cock or Fighting Antique......no the first 2 are better. I vote for the OWA having had both, but I love Weller Antique. I think it, not the Chicken, is one of the best values in bourbon today.

    To me, OWA is a memory. I don't think the new stuff compares favorably. That being said, FC is still one of my very favorites. It's a guilty pleasure considering how much crap people here give it, but I love HH whiskey, and I love FC. If you haven't tried it, you definitely should.

    Here, FC is usually less than $15 - sometimes $12 - while OWA is always more than $20. At those prices it's a no brainer - FC all week long and twice on Sunday.

    OWA.

    I don't understand the love for FC.

    Re: Fighting cock 103 vs OWA 107

    I have both and did a direct comparison after being inspired by this thread. After having both I have to say that I can't decide. They're both great representations of their categories, so I think it really comes down to personal preference and price. FC is much cheaper, but I also think OWA is worth the extra few bucks. This was a great idea for a thread since I previously would not have put these two in direct competition, but now feel that they're on equal ground.

    FIGHTING COCK! It's like OGD BIB with some extra barrel flavor and depth.

    OWA tastes like battery acid and mold to me. The first couple sips were good, but as I sipped it, I got to hate it quickly. Then again, I don't much care for any Buffalo Trace product or wheated bourbon. It's all up to your own taste buds!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Fighting cock 103 vs OWA 107

    I find FC to be an excellent mixer while I enjoy OWA on its own.... both have a place....
