    No, not the BiB. From the little bit I read that is the 4 yr, higher proof version of this. Store didn't have the BiB, just this and the GNS blended stuff.

    I found the BiB recently and picked it up. I think it was bottle around 2000. It is interesting. First impressions were mixed. I found parts I enjoyed (the nose especially), but it seemed to drink "hotter" than 100 proof. I need another sample.

    American Brandy Is Bigger Than You Think

    I have a bottle of the Clear Creek 8 year old apple brandy. I enjoy it. It's very apple forward. I'd guess that the Laird's will be less so since it was aged in charred oak.

    I think the 7 1/2 yo may be the best of the Laird's bunch. The Applejack and BIB tend to be more cocktail focused while the 12yo, although quite lovely in its own way, is far more brandy and less apple. The 7 1/2 yo seems to strike the best balance between showing off the fruit and being a pleasant drink to start or finish an evening.
