    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I will fall on that grenade and pick up a bottle of the new stuff after work. My palate is not refined so I may be of little assistance, but I'll give it a whirl.

    While 1792 is not something I drink often it is something I always have open. I did pick up several handles of the 8 year today just in case. Everything I have seen around here is still 8 year. It may be around for awhile because it is not a big seller in this area.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    Just did a blind side-by-side of the 8yo 1792 and new NAS 1792. I had my wife pop open the bottles and pour then while I was in another room. I easily picked out the new one by nose alone. It's brighter and more bold, but not in a bad way. The 8yo has more of a maple and earthy flavor to it and I will miss it, but the new stuff is by no means the usual watered-down swill from Sazerac I've come to expect. It's a little more bold and young, but not by much. Think of it as a refined VOB.

    Now fast forward your imagination 3 years from now. If you can tell differences in the profile mere weeks after the switch imagine what it'll slowly become.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I apologize in advance if this has already been previously discussed, but what is the mash bill of VOB BIB? I have a half empty bottle and just nosed it from the bottle and was surprised (in a good way)...

    Haha. I know everyone wouldn't agree with that, but it seems like more and more products from Sazerac (And pretty much all the other distillers.) are coming at a lower proof or with no age statement. It's getting frustrating! Combine this with my dislike of the way they toot their own horn constantly and I pretty much wrote them off.

    This is what I'm afraid of. The 1792 and the Sazerac Rye are the only thing my palate agrees with from Sazerac, so it's got me worried I may have to totally cut them out of my whiskey cabinet!

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I grabbed a bottle of vob86 yesterday but realized as I was close to the counter that it only had a 6 on the label. I would say they've done a good job at trying to be sneaky on the label change. It is just so easy to not even notice that it's missing the 6 years.
