I have never personally been a big OFBB,but the '12 seemed to strike me right for once.I thought this releases had a lot going on this being the first I have purchased since the '09 release which I found to be one of the worst bourbons I've had to date with an over bearing cedar note I just could't shake.I actually enjoyed this one enough to maybe even pick up another and for me that is saying a lot as I am far from being a BF fanboy.
