    I think the TW Samuels BIB may have been discontinued. I haven't seen one in years. I still see the 80 proof now and then. David Nicholson is still using labels that say DSP 16 (closed in 1992). It should say DSP 1. It's more or less the same as current Old Fitz.

    TPS still lists it as in stock. $21 for a 1.75

    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Re: The modern day use of bottled-in-bond statements

    Bonded certainly doesn't mean better, but it definitely means 'different,' and in this hobby different is good, in that we like to taste different things. A bond is the only way to taste what the distillers thought were their best choices when they had to select only barrels distilled during a specific six month period. When so much on labels today means nothing, I like something on a label that really tells me something. Although most bonds are not premium products, there is a strict limit on how far producers can go in cheapening them so that, in reality, most bonds are a very good value.

    I hear what your saying, Chuck. I like the concept of Bottled In Bond for the same reasons you list. But, where I'm hung up, is on whether the structural boundaries give us little beyond an "ideal", versus a "reality", of the things you speak of, at present. Personally and unfortunately I guess, I think BIB is little more than the former, today. Would love to see it grow into something more meaningful. Based on many comments here, the enthusiast community certainly would welcome it. And, in my mind, could present a nice opportunity for the legacy distilleries to grow their businesses in the premium/ultra premium segments.

    I agree Joe, I would love to see BIB carry more swag. The bourbon market is changing so quickly due to demand. More NDPs and even the distillers are changing products offerings more frequently than the recent past...new products, label changes, etc.

    I used to see TW Samuels BIB in Louisville stores, than a few years ago it disappeared. Once a guy posted here that was a descendent of the Samuels family. He wanted a bottle, but said he couldn't find any. I generally avoid looking at TPS website. It's either depressing, or a big temptation to make a road trip and spend $$$.
