It's that time once again, and yes I know I'm late. What can I say?
Once again, I received a suggestion from a fellow member for this months BOTM, (Thanks Charles) so I figured why not. As was stated in a pm to me, it hasn't been the BOTM in a while, there's been some changes to it, and we have quite a few newer members. There ya go.
Here's my two cents worth. As a lot of you know, I love my wheaters. I like BIB's/100 proofers just about as much. While I don't have anything bad to say about VOB BIB, I have to admit I don't care for it as much as I do a few other BIB's. There's nothing wrong with it at all, it's just my own individual taste preferences I guess. I know some of you will think I'm crazy, but I actually passed up a few bottles of the "age stated" VOB BIB while I was on vacation. Oh well.
Anyway, let's hear what y'all have to say about VOB BIB/100 proof. Oh, one more thing before we get started. Most of us are aware of all the changes that have taken place in the bourbon world the last year or two. Reference here being dropped age statements, BIB designations, drop in proof etc…. All this has already been covered in a few different threads here on SB. The changes to VOB BIB were covered quite extensively in a VOB specific thread IIRC. Please, and I emphasize the word please, don't air your gripes and complaints about the changes to VOB, and/or any other bourbons here. Everyone's cooperation would be greatly appreciated. Enough said.
