    That's the sound released from the horse's other end.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    This thread has gotten a lot of attention. Never really targeted this bottling, but maybe I am missing out?!? Picked up 4 bottles of 6 year BIB today. At $13 a bottle, my risk is very low. Is this a legit sipper or simply a great 'value' to do what you please with?

    It was both. Thing about Barton is their process makes for a rye forward profile combined with balanced full flavors of wood and caramel creating a combination that punched above it's weight.

    Hope they really did reply (or was blank meant to be a great big fat silence from them). Especially interested if they chose to comment on why it was necessary to be disingenuous with the "6" neck label.

    Maybe it was just a malfunction of the software/printer when they printed the neck bands. The font generator/translator got corrupted, but only on the words on either side of the 6, so it ended up just printing the two horizontal lines instead of the words. Yeah, that's the ticket..

    What that was supposed to say was:

    Hello and thanks for your inquiry.
    The age statement has been removed because when the bourbon reaches the taste profile, they will release it.....and that is happening sometimes, before 6 years, and they don't want to hold it back. The brand is recognized as VOB 6, so they kept the 6 on the bottle.

    Bull shit.

    No one on here, from what I have read, calls VOB "VOB 6"

    The keeping of the "6" is meant to be a trick to hopefully keep people buying it without noticing the loss of an age statement. It is intended to keep long term buyers buying it through deceit, but will actually cause long term buyers to get pissed about it and leave. Squire was probably their biggest ambassador of "VOB 6", and look at his response to all this. screw 'em!


    The only BIB people on here refer to as "6" is HH BIB 6, only because HH also has a NAS HH BIB also


    Seriously, can you imagine Dodge taking the Viper and putting a v6 in it, yet keeping the "V10" badges on it and saying "people think the Viper V10 is just the name".....imagine the sales repurcussions.

    Well, isn't that special.

    Same old story, same old insulting song and dance.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    I believe the 86 and 90 proof also have a "6" on the bottle where it once stated "aged 6 years." So, according to BT, are all three recognized as "VOB 6?"
