    Re: Old Fitzgerald BIB -- Cracker Jack!!

    It bears repeating that good distillers will try to match a brands taste profile, even as ownership and even distilleries change. Overall, I think OF BIB has kept a very sweet taste profile, even if there are discernible differences between the DSP 16 and DSP 1 whiskeys.

    Re: Old Fitzgerald BIB -- Cracker Jack!!

    I stopped at the liquor store which has the 1.75 of Old Fitz BIB and it is a DSP16 so it is an older bottle . It has been there for years and I will pick it up in a week or so if it doesn't get snapped up by then. He also has a number of the Ky Spirit with Pewter Stoppers, Damn I need to sell a guitar! But alas I only jest, I couldn't sell them or if I did I would be in such extremity that Bourbon wouldn't be in the mix. ( Read Food or Rent!)

    Bobby grab that bottle if it says dsp-16 only on the bottle. it is the best!!!!! if it says 16 and 24 it won,t taste as good. the s/w bottlings bottled before approx. 1985 tastes the best. if you really want the best get the one made and bottled in the 70,s if you can find them. i know because i have about 25 gallons of the old stuff. pure ambrosia as Chuck Cowdery would say. It is the best bourbon i,ve ever tasted. try KUHLS liquor across from the explorer plant in louisville cause i was in a hurry and might have missed some. good luck and the older bottlings are the best if you know what to look for. life is good--den

    Haha, you're not kidding Bobby! My collection now somehow feels inferior...

    I'm going to definately have to search some of this out, considering how someone finds it good enough to put away that much of it!

    Yep, seeing that I live in NC. Barney is on the other side and a Carolina Hurricanes flag waving from the passenger door. A coworker photochopped it last year during the Stanley Cup run.

    I know it's kind of hard to see the flag or Barney. So, here is the full photo.
