    I absolutely agree with you, B. Regular BT has never been better than what it has been the last couple of years.

    Fortunately, you don't have to choose.

    Love BT --- it was my gateway bourbon, I really should go back to it more often... I have a feeling once I slow down on the 'adventure' part of this hobby, BT will become my version of Squire's OGD.

    Squire, I envision your liquor cabinet/bunker to be like Fred Flintstone's clothes closet. But instead of orange tunics w black spots, it's filled w orange Granddads and Barton spots.

    My preference is the BIB but the 86 or 90 work as well.

    Yeah, I am kind of in the same boat. I don't find much difference between BT and ER. I opt for BT because of price. Although, given the price point (about $20 in IN), I usually opt for something a little cheaper (OGD) or a little more expensive (EC12, WL12 or WT101). I also prefer WL12 over OWA but like the kick with OWA. I have never vatted the two but I can see the appeal. As squire says, we generally don't have to choose between the two, but if I had to, I would also go with OWA.

    For a specific recommendation an Old Potrero barrel strength rye, if you can find any, there should still be some around.
    Yeah, I can't think of any brands with BIBs available where I would opt for a lower proof over the BIB.

    Doug - I agree that OGD and VOB have a somewhat similar taste. I prefer OGD a little more because I taste a little more bite which I believe is based on the rye content being a little higher.
