    What's your favorite BIB and why?

    Just curious to see what is popular and why. I seem to like 100+ proofers and have spent more time experimenting with various BIBs than anything else. Since theyre almost all between $10 and $20, what do you like or dislike about various ones?

    Ive tried VOB, OGD, HH white, HH gold, EW, and (though not currently labeled as a BIB anymore) Forester 100. Ive yet to try McKenna, JTSB, Dant, or Fitz.

    Of the ones ive tried, id probably pick the EW BIB if I had to pick only one, though ive not found any that were disagreeable.

    VOB and OGD were extremely similar to me.

    HH white was pretty good (like the OGD/VOB similarity, its extremely similar to the EW BIB), but the gold tasted like a younger version (probably 4 compared to 6)

    Forester wouldve been my last pick of what ive tried.

    Of the ones ive not tried, would anyone recommend any of them worthy?

    This is a trick question, right?

    in your case, squire, YES!


    but seriously, i know you are an OGD/VOB guy, and youve been drinking them for probably most of my life. what is it about them that you always pick those up rather than the other dozen BIB's? one's a beam, ones a barton.....do you not like HH profiles (HH makes more BIB's than anyone)?

    help me learn.

    The malted milk ball taste of Old Forester BIB is awesome, SW Old Fitz BIB is another great pour. But I really just love that HH 10yr it is well put together, comparing it to the Henry McKenna which is a single barrel 10yr BIB, the Mckenna has been in my experience super thin, lacks the nice mouthfeel of hh10yr.

    since the 8 year is no more, i am assuming when you guys talk about 10 year heaven hill, you are talking about stuff you hoarded years ago and is long since gone?

    Re: What's your favorite BIB and why?

    This thread is yet another example of how everyone's palate is different. I'm seeing alot of love for EWBIB. I certainly like it, but for my taste VOB and Old Forester are far better.
