    Does the Rebel Yell have an age statement?

    A good deal considering it is very tough to find at retail. The new BMH is not the same. I guess it depends on if you want to drink it or sell it.

    I really didn't know what it was until after I posted it here and then noticed the 16. I thought it was an older release of the standard SmB. The owner and I even looked for the age and didn't see it while I was there. I went back and got it for less than that Tyler. I hope it was worth it...

    I can't remember Squire. Didn't take a pic of the front. I just know that the label was different from the ones that have been around for a few years and I was sitting right next to the dusty Turkey handles that I came home with.

    The age statement on Rebel Yell migrated around a bit, was on the neck at one time on a small, separate label.

    I certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed at less than $125.

    While I think red label BMH is mediocre bourbon at an inflated price, the latest BMH16 that I tasted was really nice stuff.

    What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    Passed up some Bruichladdich PC10 (Cask Strength Tro Na Linntean) @ ~$184, Weller12 @ over $34, & a bunch of others that were all overpriced.

    The red label BMH is swill. I had high hopes, but after having at least a 1/3 of the bottle, I can say it's definitely in the top 3 of worst bourbons for the price.

    I like corn whiskey as much as the next guy, but then read "with natural flavors", that seems very un-natural to me.

    Walked away chuckling......but yet still oddly curious.
