    I have always assumed that's why it was named Lot "B".

    The first run of the product was actually called "Lot A" IIRC.

    Re: What's the deal with Lot B???

    Being that I only recently got into the world of bourbon earlier this year, this was my first fall trying to procure any of the Van Winkles. I managed to grab a 10 yr, 12 yr Lot B, and a 20. I have to say, the Lot "B" is my personal favorite. The 20 year is a beautiful whiskey, but there something about the intense dark fruit nature of the Lot "B" that I really love. I haven't had the pleasure of trying the Weller, but if it's anything close to the Lot "B" I'd be buying a ton of it. But I would have no problem spending $59 again if I could find any more bottles, which, I know I can't at this point. Boo.

    Weller Antique is superior to Lot B. Lot B is overrated and overpriced.

    Crap! Guess I better give my bottles away. And here I was thinking that I liked it WAY better than OWA. Stupid me.

    lol. I will say that the I recently found a few older bottles of OWA with the age statement still on the bottle. So much better than the new bottle of OWA I initially tried. But still, no where close to Lot "B" .

    I thought that the opinions expresed were exactly that - an opinion. I think Weller Antique is superior to Lot B. That is my opinion. You don't have to agree. We all have different tastes in bourbon. We can express our opinion and not expect a sarcastic and silly response.

    Certainly didn't seem to come across as an expression of an opinion to me. Sounded rather more like you were making a statement of fact and that nothing more needed to be said, particularly with the second and unnecessary second sentence in your post.

    Saying "I think" or "I believe" or "In my opinion" might have helped clarify the matter ever so slightly (whatever Josh might think of doing that!).

    Just my opinion of course...

    Re: What's the deal with Lot B???

    If anyone makes a comment concerning a product, normally it is assumed that the comment is the opinion of the individual making the comment. Stating "in my opinion" or "I believe" seems to be redundant. If I state it, I believe it and it is my opinion. This is my last off-topic comment here, since we strayed from the subject.
