    Has Heaven Hill BiB white label gone NAS?

    Just picked up the very last handle of HH white and green (with the Barton no longer 6 year) at my local and now that I'm home I notice there is no age statement of any kind. Anyone notice anything similar?

    I kid you not, just left LB and not only was the shelf cleared but the one bottle left has no indication of anything age related outside of the BiB statement. First time buying a 1.75 so I don't know if that's always the case.

    I have found that the handles to be switched to NAS,but all the 750's still have the age stated moniker I've found.I have heard this rumor for quite some time as well,so every time I'm in Kentucky I buy a case or two,so I'm sitting pretty good on the stuff for the time being.It truly is a shame if this holds true,because I don't think there is a better bargain out there and the black and gold label is pretty rough in comparison.

    check the back of the label. on the 1.75's, it nowhere on the front says anything about an age, but on the back label it does say aged 6 years. its been this way for a while.

    Nope, no age statement on the back. I've looked it up and down, the only thing close to an age statement is "Time Tempered".

    There have been rumors floating about for at least the last eight months or so, that HH might possibly discontinue the 6 yr BIB. When I inquired about this, I got neither a denial, or a confirmation. You be the judge of what that might mean.

    I still say that the point of EWBIB going nationwide is to do away with the HH 6 year BIB. I'd bet on it.

    I don't really follow your thinking here as the HH 6 BIB was only available in 6 states I believe so it's not about volume in that sense.I would be more prone to say that under the boom they are looking to the future and using these stocks for future releases of EWSB or something along those lines and the stock has to be pulled from somewhere before it becomes an issue.
