So is your BIB distilled at DSP-414 or DSP-354? Some of us here think that makes a differerence. My taste experience is that the DSP-414's are some of the rummiest of the dusty rum tasting bourbons. I also regard Signature as a very good bourbon and its difference from the DSP-414 dusties highlight what is different about the older versus modern bourbon profile.
