    Barton

    Why is it that with the exception of 1792 and VOB BIB everything that Barton makes is bottom shelf bourbon?
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Barton

    Can't speak to why Barton's product line is what it is, but I'd like to see Sazerac make a Barton addition to the BTAC.

    Don't quite follow your question Paul, the only difference between Barton 86 and BIB is the proof.

    Jim I hope Sazarac leaves Barton alone, it's the last quality value priced brand available locally.

    I'm afraid they already haven't left it alone, I know they cut production because they were really after the warehouse space.

    I wish value priced Barton was available here - it's only 1792 or the Ten High blend for me. It makes me treat the bottle of VOB BIB I have as if it weren't a value brand.

    BIB will probably be the first casualty, followed by removal of the age statement.

    Speaking of Barton blends Jim, is Kentucky Gentleman available in your market?

    Nope. Come to think of it, we get the Fleischmann's blend too although I've never had it, but those three labels are it for Barton whiskey. We get a bunch of other things from Barton, vodka, liqueurs, etc, but no straight bourbon besides 1792.

    I agree with you on this one. Two candidates in my book: A higher aged Barrel Proof VOB; and the same configuration with their Rye.

    A Barton Rye BIB is very high on my wish list.
