    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.

    OHH 10yr DSP KY 31, easy. Can't get enough of it.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    i assume OHH is old heaven hill?

    wasnt aware of a 10 year. i knew there was an 8 year, but it was long gone before i learned of bourbon. is the 6 year going away now? ive seen posts reporting that.

    Another option is Rittenhouse Rye BIB.

    For me it's VOB BIB. Just tastes the best to me of the BIBs I've had thus far.
    And the fact that it's $13 doesn't hurt.

    Rittenhouse is another to add to the list. what do you like about that one? ive read a lot of good reviews on it but havent gotten to that yet, as ive only seen it in big stores, and i frequent the small stores and pharmacies mostly.

    Ritt BIB is a bourbony rye. Very tasty.
    My favorite BIB is OGD because it has so much of what I perceive to be rye flavor. However, I've liked every BIB I've ever tried, and I find they're really more similar than they are different.
