i don't drink it often, but i think the small batch is one that falls into that dangerously drinkable territory. it's one that i find to be very easy drinking, but at the same time still has a lot going on in it... i think some people might even argue there is too much going on with all those different recipes
i love the sb. that's my go to off the shelf pour. a good barrel of the sb is really terrific bourbon, and i've found that there are more good ones then there are so-so ones.
cask strength sb's are fun too... obsk, obsv, oeso are three of my favorites, but i've found it's hard to go wrong with any obsk selection.
FRSB is one of my favorites. I like the Small Batch, but I have to give the nod to the 1B if I have to pick between the two.
Im more of a SmB person. I drink both, and like both. The SB I think is better with a little water, I also enjoy unfiltered and uncut, but I need to cut them to where I think they are best. One thing about the SmB that really impresses me is that I think it is the best bourbon I have had out of the bottle. I think Jim found the swet spot with the proof of the SmB. If I was in a desert and had no water, I would drink 4R SmB.
Aside: I have been pondering ordering TPS 1Bs, what is the difference between their bottle and LE's. Is it the age of the LE? Are there ages on TPS?
1B is by far the winner in my book. i haven't picked one up in some time, but the last one that i had, Chuck nailed it with the nectar description. It was a really good bottle.
And a great deal at $34
There just have been too many others that have got in the way of it recently. Its one that I do need to revisit.

I may be drunk, but in the morning, I'll be sober and you'll still be ugly...WC
