    Why choose OGDBIB over OGD114?

    My local has both, I always end up with the 114. Anybody find they prefer the 100 for whatever reason? Same profile?

    The 100 is about $4 cheaper, is that enough reason to try it?

    Cheers,

    The BIB is very good and well worth buying but for my money, I'd spend the extra $4 and go with the 114 every time. I find it richer and having better "mouth-feel" than the BIB, though I'm happy as a clam to drink either one.

    I like them both but they are different. Overall I prefer the BIB because it is a little lighter and to my palate more balanced. It is also more versatile for mixing. One of the best values out there. I wouldn't hesitate to try it.

    I like having them both around for different reasons. The BIB often ends up in the fridge for those warmer days and the 114 stays in the cabinet for neat pours or for vatting. Currently almost out of both but I have so much other stuff in the bunker I probably won't be buying either anytime soon unless I go out of town and need a 200 or 375 bottle when staying away from home.

    I've only bought 200s or 375s of the BIB; I'm a sucker for variety, but for $4 difference - I'd be with the OGD114 all day long.

    My first response is of course we can have both but I suppose the real difference is 114 is for me and BIB is for company who are used to 80 proof stuff. That and the BIB occasionally goes on sale whereas the 114 rarely ever does.

    Re: Why choose OGDBIB over OGD114?

    A some stores near me the bib is available in 1L bottles for 20 and the 114 in 750's for 25. Just depends on what I want to do with it. I personally like both. Basil Hayden is just what exactly? 86 proof and 8 years old OGD? I haven't bought one yet, I just go with BIB and the 114. Is there any reason to buy Haydens - any fans?

    Basil Hayden is only 80 proof and is no longer age stated, so there's very little reason to pay such a high price for it. It does taste maybe a bit "older" than the BIBs, but it's so watered down. If they bumped it to even 90 proof I think it would be great.

    Yes but with BH you get that fancy bottle with the copper ring around it.

    There is quite a bit of OGD talk here, so I had to picked up a 114 bottle today and yes I understand...great Bourbon for $24.95
