    My guess would be that an in house demand issue is more likely the cause.

    Doug are those 'old bottles' sort of a reverse pear shaped?

    the bottle reminds me of a Fitz 1849 bottle. not the 'double bubble' shaped bottle they use now. I have no idea if they are old or not, it is just the 90 proof in that kind of bottle.

    Actually, I believe the pre Sazerac Barton bottle was from the same supplier to Old Rip/Old Fitz.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    went to one of my favorite shops today (the only place i've ever bought this in the state) and the entire Barton line was either out or NAS. They had a lot of this not that long ago. I couldn't help but imagining Sazerac doing givesies-backsies on their product and replacing it with the new stuff.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    Went to my favorite stop in town tonight to get some beer and check out the bourbon selection. As I looked at the bottom shelf holding the barton selection I gazed upon many bottles with just a "6", however there was one bottle that was aged 6 years and 100 proof. The sad/funny part is that it was literally dusty. I wiped off the dust confirming my selection and purchase said bottle. I hate to contribute to their delinquence but I have nary a bottle of barton left in my cupboard so I did it anyway. This is one I didn't expect to go by the wayside. While I was at it I had to pick up a 1L bottle of AAA 10 year as well.

    I can see why the AAA 10 year was pulled and bear no ill will. In fact, I might would drive clear across town to buy one while they are still available.
