The new birthday bourbon-tried it and is not bad-just haven't made up my mind yet. I guess there is new Stagg coming out from what I hear. And of course VOB with their small batch - this is strictly a guess on my part but in my opinion VOB will be the very best this year. VOB has always been able to stand on it's own with the very best of them, but now we are in for a real treat. With all the hoop-la let us not forget the many great ones that are out there now-Buffalo Trace, Ancient Ancient Age, Old Fitzgerald, Wild Turkey and of course those fabulous bottlings from Heaven Hill. If it gets any better than these I don't think I will be able to stand it!! Soon as someone gets their hands on a small batch from VOB let me know what you think. This is going to be a great one. The reason I know - sorry I can't tell!!!
