    VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I was at TPS the other night picking up some presents when I wandered past one of my favorite bottom shelf bourbons of all time. I didn't think to take a photo, but the new neck label of the VOB BiB has a 6 rather than the "Aged 6 Years" statement. I didn't look around on the label to see if the age statement is still present elsewhere, but this is a mighty sad event. I didn't see it posted anywhere yet so I thought I'd let everyone know.

    Still gotta be at least four years old, though, right? 'Cause it's bonded?

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    i considered buying some today, and I noticed the '6' on the neck, but didnt think to look close enough to see if it said '6 years' or not. at $12 a bottle, it wouldnt surprise me to see it lose an age statement, but i wouldnt jump to conclusions either.

    squire will know.......

    It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. There are some exceptionally fine bourbons released lately but at the cost of losing some of the most attractive old timers. AAA 10YO redirected to more upscale bottlings, for example. My last handle of VOB with Aged 6 Years on the neck band is close to empty. I sincerely hope I don't have to replace it with younger juice. VOB is my favorite BIB regardless of price.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I still prefer my HH white label, but what's to say they don't come for it next.

    I think he's doing what he did when ER10/101 was discontinued...
