    Exactly, no way to pick a favorite. This is poll is really impossible since there are fantastic barrels out there for all 10 recipes. Its more about finding a great barrel than which recipe it is. When we did a blind tasting of all 10 barrels I went in thinking I would for sure have a K as a favorite, and Wainright was convinced we would pick and F, we ended up with OBSV and OBSQ. With that being said I voted OBSV because thats my favorite bottle I have open right now.

    I know there are 10 recipes and I have 10 fingers but it took both hands, one foot and miscellaneous body parts to count the number of bottles on that bar.

    I have four so far.....OESO, OBSK, OBSO and OBSF they are all fantastic and all very different from one another. If I had to pick id have to say its very close between the OESO and OBSK....but again you cant go wrong with any of them.

    I currently have 8 of the 10. Some are duplicated.
    My fave is always OBSK, at barrel proof. That can sometimes change when diluted, but not usually.
