    Re: Availability of Old Fitzgerald BIB?

    There's only 1 or 2 better ways to spend $15 than on a bottle of Fitz BIB. And that's pretty dependent on what part of what town you're in

    Well that's a better way of saying what I said upthread that it is still a solid pour .

    That's really the only way to find out Sun. Even if the majority say one thing, you may not agree.

    I am so glad I bought this bourbon. Syrupy sweet, with a nice interplay of toasty oak and spice on the outset. It is a little too expensive when compared against W12 perhaps, but this is a neglected bourbon (probably because it has such a storied history).

    I recommend you guys give this a second shot if its on sale. I'll report on my vatting findings w/ OWA.

    I'm about halfway through a bottle Wainwright picked up for me in Kentucky. I didn't go in expecting much. It was just on my bucket list. I am very impressed with it! Solid, solid pour. Very little heat for the proof. Sure tastes older then four years to me.

    Is not posting on a thread a bad thing when you're not an expert on the given topic?

    I love these threads where some of the truisms of several years back are overturned by tasters with an open mind.

    Good stuff lads

    It's a very solid QPR pour. Enough umph to stand up in mixed drinks, not bad on the rocks, and at this price you won't feel guilty about mixing up a bourbon and ginger on a hot day.

    Yep, having an open mind is good. After a round of gold yesterday afternoon in steamy 98 degree heat I had a JBW on the rocks in the Clubhouse. Very tasty and very refreshing on a hot day. Obviously there are folks that can detect Beam at 1000 yards and run away but I bet a lot of folks that don't like JBW because they were told they should not like JBW would have enjoyed it. It would not have been that great neat, but over ice it was real tasty.
